San Diego singer-songwriter Laura Roppé has released her sophomore album, “I’m Still Here,” produced by Matthew Embree, the frontman and lead guitarist of indie rock sensation, Rx Bandits (whose music is featured on the latest iteration of the popular video game, Guitar Hero.). Laura wrote all the songs for the album during and immediately following rigorous chemotherapy and radiation treatments for an aggressive form of breast cancer in 2009.
“I’m Still Here” has received a glowing reception: On February 4, 2011, Laura climbed to No. 6 on Billboard Magazine’s “Uncharted” Chart, a ranking of the Top 50 emerging indie artists in the world, and she remained on the chart for five consecutive weeks (and counting!); “George Clooney” recently charted on Myspace; Laura’s celebratory music video for her bucket list song, “George Clooney,” has grabbed Top 30 or higher “Youtube Honors” in Canada, Australia, Spain, India, Japan, France, Germany, and many others; European and UK radio is regularly airing tracks from “I’m Still Here”.
Respected UK music magazine, Maverick Magazine, raves that “I’m Still Here” is a five-star, “must-have” album (February 2011 issue); and influential music blogger Wildy’s World has named “I’m Still Here” as Number 13 on its list of the Top 60 albums of 2010, saying: “Roppe is the comeback kid; not only kicking cancer to the curb but remaking herself as an artist in one of the most brilliant and emotionally naked artistic turns of 2010.
