Laura Meyer (MFA 2021, Writing) dreamed of being the first female in Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. After touring internationally under the stage name Cygne for more than a decade, she wearied of the road, and decided to make a change. Laura tells us the story of her Dylanesque origins, the ecstasy and desolation of the road, and what you do when you're at risk of outliving your dream.

"Scars," from Passenger (2015)
"Miracles" and "All Roads" from Let it Breathe (Softly) (2017)
