Originally from Colorado, Lauren Austin has combined the country music of her early years, her roots-rock instincts honed in Los Angeles, and the best of her current residency in Nashville to create an authentic blend of Americana music.
Segueing from a formal musical education and early songwriting, an open mic in Los Angeles would open the door to a musical partnership with Emmy nominated Jeremiah Sammartano (Jeremiah and the Red Eyes) and her live music career. The nationwide touring that followed solidified her sturdy voice and seasoned her prowess on guitar, mandolin, banjo, and harmonica.
Her self-produced and financed 2009 debut CD "Soul Confetti" garnered critical acclaim from Americana taste-makers and displayed a great collection of songs and musicians. In addition to Jeremiah Sammartano, William Ellis (Montgomery Gentry), Johnny d’Artenay (Wanda Jackson), Dan Hocchalter (Gretchen Wilson), and Joey Crawford (Allison Krauss), among others contributed to the project. The album has received considerable airplay on various satellite, public, and online Country and Americana stations.
Currently she is writing and recording her much anticipated follow up to "Soul Confetti" with an expected Spring 2012 release. She continues to play live and plans to tour throughout the country.
