Boston recording artist Lauren Bateman is not only a prolific songwriter and musician, she is also an entrepreneur that left behind her lab coat and goggles for a fulfilling life in music. Retiring from her day job at the age of 27, Lauren is no stranger to the Boston music scene.
Lauren had her first show in the penthouse of club Felt in Boston in December of 2006. Despite the cold weather, fans came from all around the Boston area so see Lauren’s solo debut. Equipped with only her acoustic guitar and a small PA, Lauren captivated her audience through the raw emotional honesty of her lyrics.
Lauren has come a long way since 2006. Now backed by a full band including band members Drew Apioli on lead electric guitar, Felix Zapata on Bass, and TDK on drums, Lauren’s live sound has evolved into a full pop/rock experience. Lauren released her debut full length album, “I’ve Been Waiting”, in the spring of 2010. The CD release party was held in May at the famous Oliver’s Nightclub in Boston to an energetic crowd.
Lauren has been composing songs all her life with lyrics that take her listeners on an emotional rollercoaster ride that is both personal and relatable. Lauren is a master of penning songs about love, heartache, anger, redemption, and loss. Her song Guardian Angel, written for her aunt that passed away of pancreatic cancer, was selected to be incorporated into the reality TV series Biker Chicz in which Lauren stars as one of the main eight characters. Her title track, I’ve Been Waiting, was selected for inclusion on the Many Roads from Home compliation CD to be released in Fall of 2010.
Lauren’s songs have been featured on WMFO 91.5FM Tufts radio, Live 365 internet radio, LG73 Radio, as well as the 5 Speed Cassette podcast. Lauren was also a feature artist on Alternative Addiction for the month of June 2010.
