Laura Weller-Vanderpool Mini-Bio

Laura, along with Bonnie Hammond, fronted an acoustic/harmonic band called Capping Day in the late ’80s.  In addition to providing a counterpoint to the grunge scene, Laura also offers an incisive perspective on the Seattle music community.  Today, Laura plays in the Green Pajamas with her husband Scott (from Room Nine and Chemistry Set), and is working on a documentary film called These Streets about female artists during the grunge era.
