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 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, Stevie Nicks, and Amy Winehouse. 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!
