Laurel Halo (b. 1985, Detroit) is a composer, producer, musician, DJ and record label owner. Drawing from a range of musical traditions, her output is diverse yet singular, with releases traversing ambient, leftfield club, experimental pop and film score. Since 2012 she has released a number of albums ranging in genre, complexity and scope, including Quarantine (2012, Hyperdub), In Situ (2015, Honest Jon's), Raw Silk Uncut Wood (2018, Latency), and Possessed: OST (2020, Vinyl Factory). She has performed in venues, festivals, clubs and institutions across the world, including the Southbank Centre, Sydney Opera House, The Kitchen, Kölner Philharmonie, CTM/Transmediale, Sónar, and Montreux Jazz Festival, among others.

In September 2023 she released her latest album, Atlas, as the debut on her record label, Awe.
