Every time I watch this video, it just wrecks me” - Bobby Carter NPR Tiny Desk Producer, Contest Judge

Tiny Desk Contest Top Shelf: Bob Boilen and Bobby Carter

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 recently, from her feature in NPR Music's Tiny Desk 'Top Shelf'!

Her first original releases are a collaboration with Ben Suyat. The two began writing music while at the School of Rock in Aurora, Colorado, staying after weekly house band rehearsals to work out their tunes.    

Lauren's vocals have been compared to Amber Navran, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, and Amy Winehouse. The urban vibe of her music is a surprising juxtaposition to the rural eastern Colorado farm where she lives and creates. 

Lauren is currently working on a debut solo project she can't wait to share with the world!
