Laura Rizzotto is a 23 year old singer, songwriter and pianist born in Brazil, to a Latvian father and a Brazilian mother of Portuguese descent. She wrote her first tune at the age of eleven and has published more than 100 original songs since then. 

At the age of fifteen, Laura started performing in the Rio de Janeiro's music scene. Her first record deal came up one year later, after a record company executive saw her performing live. Her debut studio album, Made in Rio, was released in 2011. Shortly after, Laura received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music and moved to Boston, United States.

Laura performs in various music venues and festivals in the United States and has recorded her second studio album Reason To Stay, in Los Angeles, in 2014. This album served as a driving force to promote environmental education and a greater public awareness regarding the urgent need of conservation and restoration of Brazilian national tree, also known as The Music Tree, which is listed as an endangered species and often cut down to make musical instruments.

In 2015, Laura moved to New York City to pursue a Masters degree in Music and Music Education, at Columbia University, graduating in May 2017. In New York, Laura wrote Miracle, as a tribute to road traffic victims. The song was featured on the second Global Conference on Road Safety, sponsored by the United Nations.

The song Funny Girl won the Latvian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. The song, which Laura wrote and composed, will be included on Laura’s upcoming EP Amber, to be released in 2018, to celebrate her Latvian heritage.

Lyrics of Funny Girl

  • English
Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funny Oh, it all started as a joke But now I’m falling, now I’m falling The punch line is getting old Cause I’ve been keeping to myself For way too long Ain’t it funny, ain’t it funny I made you laugh every time we spoke I locked my heart in hesitation But somehow, you cracked the code I tore down my walls, And wrecked the ceiling Ready to bare it all, but You’re looking at her She’s looking at you I’m falling apart What can I do To make you feel that way about me too? And it’s getting hard I’m not gonna lie To keep in the dark what I’m feeling inside When you walk in smelling like her perfume What was I thinking? I’m just the funny girl to you Can you feel me, can you feel me Like a fire rising in the smoke? Can you hear me, can you hear me Open up with every note? Cause I’ve been playing to myself For way too long Oh, I tore down my walls And I wrecked the ceiling Ready to bare it all What was I thinking? You’re looking at her She’s looking at you I’m falling apart What can I do To make you feel that way about me too? And it’s getting hard I’m not gonna lie To keep in the dark what I’m feeling inside When you walk in smelling like her perfume What was I thinking? I’m just the funny girl to you So tell me what you’re looking for I promise you, I got it all What does it take to make you see I am right here? And if you ever need to cry I’ll be the one who makes you laugh Yeah, I’ll be your funny girl Your funny girl You’re looking at her She’s looking at you I’m falling apart What can I do To make you feel that way about me too? And it’s getting hard I’m not gonna lie To keep in the dark what I’m feeling inside When you walk in smelling like her perfume What was I thinking? I’m just the funny girl to you
