“I starting working with Laura right at the beginning of my career. She set the bar very high for my experience working with agents. She’s simply the best. Easy to work with, kind and has a roaster that will folk your face off. I’ve learned so much from our business relationship. So much of the success I’ve had presenting shows is due to learning from Laura in the beginning of my career. Thank you ComboPlate!!” – KC Turner Presents, San Francisco, CA

“One of the only agents I really like working with….and what a GREAT roster!” – Chris Maxwell, Red Dragon Listening Room, Baton Rouge, LA

“It has been a great pleasure to work with Laura Thomas and her sublimely-curated roster of musicians. As a presenter, I know I cannot go wrong booking a ComboPlate artist!”

“I’ve worked with a plethora of agents over the last twenty-seven years and ComboPlate’s maven, Laura Thomas, is one of my very favorites. I admire Laura’s passion, persistence & loyalty to her artists and venues. I also know if she signs an artist to her boutique roster, they are supremely talented and ever worthy of presenting. Laura’s a true believer and her support for the songwriter scene is truly inspiring…. and she helped save the Cactus!” – Griff Luneburg, Cactus Cafe, Austin, TX

“I’ve always enjoyed working with ComboPlate artists. Laura has a good ear and represents quality singer-songwriters who put on great shows!”- Peggie Jones, Sings Like Hell, Santa Barbara, CA

“I love working with Laura Thomas. She is an agent that I trust to go with me every step of the way to figure out what is best for her artists and their appearance at our Festival. It is always a pleasure to hear from her and to see her when we meet while supporting our music habit. She is in it for the long haul and shows great patience and perseverance when others give up; her artists are very fortunate to have her booking and promoting them. I will continue to book from her roster for many years to come.” – Dalis Allen, Producer Kerrville Folk Festival, Kerrville, TX

“If I were an artist, I’d be THRILLED to have Laura Thomas in my corner. Few agents are as passionate about their roster as Laura and her ComboPlate agency. As a presenter, I never feel that I am being “sold” a show and always find that Laura is looking for the best situation for both artist and presenter, and as such, we’ve always had success together. The ComboPlate line up is top notch, and working with Laura is a joy!”
- Lincoln Myerson, McCabe’s Guitar Shop, Los Angeles, CA
