New campaign thank you video now live!

Drum roll please...

I'm psyched to share my new campaign video with you! It's a thank you for all supporters, and a bit of a roast of what the music industry can feel like without friends.

Sorry it's a few minutes late. I had a phone interview with a reporter this morning! ;)

Hello week 3! We are 118% funded with six weeks to go!

I'm now editing our follow-up video. Here's a pic from behind the scenes. It wasn't easy to find a corner of Boston that could pass for Los Angeles in January, but we managed to find one... then we stopped by Dunkie's to celebrate. <3

Add YOUR NAME to my NEW ALBUM

Lauren singing at a show

Hey guys,

It's my honor to tell you FIRST that I will be releasing a new full length album in the spring of 2017. This will be my first full length release since 2009. It documents a challenging journey I have kept private until now.

In March 2016, exactly 10 years to the day after my first album release, I was unexpectedly diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Both the treatment and the cancer risked my singing voice. It was a terrifying decision to have to make and my world stopped. I had been working on this album but suddenly couldn't focus. I decided to have surgery just 31 days after my diagnosis to regain my physical and mental health.

It was a complete success and I am so proud to say my singing voice and health have perfectly recovered. As I began rebuilding my life, I saw things differently. I let my world stop again and reassembled my life in the ways that now felt right.

And then I hit the studio with a vengeance.

The 15 track album, called Let The World Stop, is divided into three acts: life, death and rebirth. It's designed to help anyone who is going through a tough time, needs inspiration or just wants to feel something. I've set up a fundraising campaign that enables YOU to get YOUR NAME on my liner notes and receive other cool thank you presents. I'll also be donating a portion of proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

You can check out the campaign here:

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your past support. I hope we can all work together to make this new record the best it can be and give back.

With love,

-Lauren

"GhostTown" gets a Nightcore remix

Dance Moms Dancer

One of the coolest things about having a song on a show that's so popular with a young fanbase is learning what else that fanbase is into. Yesterday I not only learned that someone had made a nightcore remix of my song, I also (frankly) learned what nightcore is! Originally created in Norway, nightcore is a regular recording sped up and often accompanied by manga or anime. It's a deliberately electronic/manipulated sound which is ironic since I swore I'd only work on acoustic music this week. Whoops! ;)

Say Yes To The Dress said yes to my song ;)

I'm proud to say my song "Take Me Home" was used on Say Yes To The Dress Atlanta... when she said yes to the dress!

Picking out the right wedding dress often comes down to trusting your instincts and in a way, this song did too. I wrote "Take Me Home" after an inspiring but overwhelming trip to LA where I was fortunate enough to meet with several people in the industry about my music. (Having someone say a few kind words about your work while overlooking the Hollywood Hills is not exactly a low point in your life!) I came back full of ideas, suggestions and more options than I could sort through. Ultimately, I decided to strip this song down to its basics and take a risk with an unplugged pop ballad.

Looks like I got it right! ;)
