You might recognize Lauren from Season 19 of NBC’s “The Voice”, where she made it to the Knockout Rounds on Teams Gwen and Legend, or lately, from her feature in NPR Music’s Tiny Desk ‘Top Shelf’!
Lauren’s first original releases are part of a collaboration project, culminating in her debut album, ‘The Latona EP’. Her songwriting is intricate, personal, and authentic, and her vocals have been compared to Joni Mitchell, Amy Winehouse, and Madison Cunningham. Lauren’s music is indie singer-songwriter with folk and neo-soul elements. The urban vibe of her music is a surprising contrast to the rural farm where Lauren lives and creates.
She is currently recording a solo project she can’t wait to share with the world!
