Originally from New York City, Laura Veltz has spent her entire adult life writing and performing music. After a decade touring and recording with her family band, Cecilia, culminating in a record deal with Atlantic Records, she zeroed in on her love of commercial songwriting in 2008 and was lured to Music City. Since then, Veltz has garnered cuts and hits by Country’s newest and hottest superstars alike, becoming one of today’s most respected songsmiths. Her list of hits and placements continues to grow daily including the chart toppers “I Could Use A Love Song” by Maren Morris, “Drunk Last Night” by Eli Young Band, “Lonely Eyes” by Chris Young, and her latest #1 “Speechless” by Dan + Shay, which earned Laura a 2020 Grammy nomination for Best Country Song.
Veltz co-wrote four songs, including the smash, “Rich,” from Maren Morris’s Grammy-nominated album, Hero. She has also co-written songs from the latest albums by Dierks Bentley, Kane Brown, Brothers Osborne, Ryan Hurd and Little Big Town. She also has the current hit single from Lady Antebellum “What If I Never Get Over You.”
Her songs have also been recorded by such artists as Devin Dawson, Maddie & Tae, Carly Pearce, Cassadee Pope, The Cadillac Three, and the Queen of Country Music herself, Reba.

“I have been blessed to be invited to 20 Chairman’s Council dinners. Nashville was THE BEST I have ever been to by about 10,000%. I was literally blown away with the talent, sound, heart and soul The Warren Brothers, Jessi, and Josh. The music was just plain awesome. This was so very different than watching entertainers put on a show. It was more like being with friends who are sharing something deeply personal and transparent. This was a profoundly special evening.”
Malcolm Makin – President, New England Professional Planning Group, Westerly, RI
“Your songwriter show was the perfect ending to our multi-day conference. The guys blew away our attendees with many long term members commenting it was the greatest event they have EVER attended.”

“One of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve ever had. Hearing the stories behind the songs and then hearing the actual creator sing it added to the experience. Outstanding night!”
Bryan Sweet – Raymond James Financial, Minneapolis-St.Paul, MN
“Over the years, I’ve attended the Bluebird Café sessions – which have been outstanding. I never believed that the songwriter sessions at the Bluebird Café could ever be topped! The Songwriter City show Tuesday night was one of the best shows I’ve had the opportunity to attend not only in Nashville – but in the U.S.! Absolutely breathtaking & outstanding! Thank you for the experience!”
Van Pearcy – Raymond James Financial, Midland, TX
“Each of the songwriters was a terrific performer. Learning about the songwriting process and how each song was written was fascinating. Whenever I hear those hits from Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton or Carrie Underwood, I think of the songwriters that performed — and the story behind each song. Thanks for a great show Songwriter City!”
Amy Peterson – Raymond James Financial
Thank you for the exceptional job you did producing the event for the Raymond James Chairman’s Council event. This crowd of the top advisors in the country have travelled the world and have seen some great entertainment, so the bar was set very high. However, Songwriter City put together an incredible team of extremely talented songwriters and performers. This group was blown away by the experience and commented that it was the best event that they have ever been exposed to in the past 20 years. I heard from the conference organizers how professional and easy you were to work with and how grateful they were to utilize your services. Thanks again for the wonderful experience!”
Jeff Dobyns – President, Southwestern Investment Group, Nashville, TN
“We hear the songs on the radio but rarely hear the stories. Having the writers perform their hits makes the songs more meaningful. I highly recommend this intimate experience.”
Jon Wax – CFP® President & CEO, Waller & Wax Advisors, Inc., Tampa, FL
“I am not much of a country music fan (until now). The songwriter’s stories were as fascinating and compelling as the music was incredible. I was truly overwhelmed by it. Jessi Alexander has an incredible voice; it’s amazing she is not a household name. The same with Josh Kear. The Warren Brothers feel like someone I’ve known for years. I enjoyed every song.”
Paul Tully – Eagle Wealth Financial, Philadelphia, PA
“I am not a country music fan. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed my evening. The singer-songwriters were talented and the format was a lot of fun. I liked the music and the pace of the event. Several of us said it was the best Chairman’s Council dinner we have ever had.”
