"I was reminded of the widely literate playfulness of Arthur, the Kinks album,
and also the nontraditional rhythms and changes in Syd-era Floyd."

Bob Strouch, WCBN DJ and local musician

MY BIOGRAPHY was an original rock band Laurence formed late 2007 with keyboardist Melinda Ingalls,
drummer Tony Archer, and bassist Katsumi Nagae. 
Laurence had worked with Tony during 1995 in their
post-punk rock band GORDON GIGANTIC, Melinda 
answered his craigs' list ad for keyboardist,
and Katsumi was already a close friend whom he'd worked with in film, and their
quirky alt-folk duo, MILLER & KATSUMI.  

Laurence rediscovered the joys of a 'live' band as his quirky pop songwriting took on a far livelier tone with other musicians
playing in real time 
as opposed to 
his relatively polished solo recordings produced on his own. 2008 saw MY BIO playing
out , record
ing a 4-song demo, and shooting a "live" community television music video. In 2009 they struggled
producing their 
1st CD, under less than desirable conditions,  with just a few rough takes in the can.
By winter 2010, 
MY BIOGRAPHY evaporated of the map.
