Laura Nyro: The Songwriters

Laura Nyro: The Songwriters

Though lauded for her singular style as a performer, Laura Nyro also enabled other artists to make magic with her captivating tunes. Her gift as a songwriter is that her distinctive voice—the subtle sway, the jazzy snap—is apparent, even when other powerhouses interpret her work. Barbra Streisand adds a Bacharachian lilt to “Hands Off the Man”, while Peggy Lipton infuses her take with Northern soul; still, Nyro’s expansive, stoned-soul sound shines.
