“I just write and sing the music I love, in hopes other people will love it too”, she states. “And if I could make a career out of that, that would be a dream.”
Growing up in the small town of Redwater, Texas, there wasn’t much opportunity. At only 12, Lauren uploaded videos on YouTube of her performing cover songs. A TV production company found her videos and wanted to cast her for a TV show called ‘Chasing Nashville’ about four girls trying to make a name for themselves in Nashville. She made the cuts, her mom quit her teaching job, and they hit the road to Nashville to film for the show. After months of filming, unfortunately, the show didn’t get renewed after the first season. Although, she ended up staying in Nashville to work on her career. The past six years have been busy with co-writes, meeting new people, performing live, and finishing high school. At 18, Lauren released her first single ‘You and Me’ in May 2018. She followed with her first EP, "Sleepless" in August 2018. The songs on the EP dives deep into heartbreak and broken relationships. As she believes music is a coping mechanism for pain, she hopes her honesty in these lyrics can relate to others; while still having a feel-good vibe. As a rapidly growing artist, there’s much more in store for her career.
