Laura Nyro (1947-1997)

Notable songwriter and singer (Inducted 2001)

This was the adult home of singer/songwriter Laura Nyro. By 1966, she released her debut album More Than A New Discovery on the Verve/Folkways label. She joined Columbia Records in 1968 and released Eli and the Thirteenth Confession, followed shortly thereafter by New York Tendaberry and Christmas and the Beads of Sweat.

Nyro recorded several albums in the late 1970s and 1980s, including the live album Season of Lights in 1977, Nested in 1978, and Mother’s Spiritual in 1984  Residence is located at 46 Joe's Hill Road in Danbury
