Born in Toronto of Italian and English heritage, Laura Deviato started singing before she could talk! She began her musical studies from a young age and continued her exploration abroad performing and touring with ensembles ranging from Jazz to Folk to Funk to Latin. Her passion for songwriting flourished while living and traveling through Latin America and Europe with her musical and life partner Olimpo Ortega; enriching her worldly musical perspective and inspiring her love of rhythm and playful improvisation. Currently residing in Victoria, she enjoys singing for children at heart of all ages and believes music is a powerful medicine that we all need. Her lyrics are both thoughtful and inspiring; her voice raw and enchanting as she flows seamlessly through genres in English, Spanish and Italian, creating an authentic sound of her own.
The Stellar Combo is in co-creation with Laura's husband Olimpo Ortega and the finest musicians and friends; Pablo Cardenas, Louis Rudner, and Hector Ramos.
