From Melbourne Australia, Lauren has always had a passion for music. During high school she sung weekly in school choirs, trained under YABC and took to teaching herself the piano, initiating the creative process of songwriting.
In a contemporary Folk/Jazz style, her compositions emulate the passion and emotion of life. In 2017 her original song 'Rhythm & Beats' placed in the top 5 of the Berklee Songwriting Contest.
Lauren's been teaching singing and music appreciation for over 15 years and in 2011 she proudly began her home studio Blackbird Vocals. On a Spring day you may just hear the resident blackbird sing his sweet song!
