"If you’re a Chicago native, the name Lauren Wolf is probably familiar. The Lauren Wolf Band however, may not ring a bell… yet. Ms. Wolf has been working for 15 years within the Chicago theater scene and has just taken her first steps toward rock/blues stardom with her debut record: “All My Secrets”. One listen and you’ll agree that stardom isn’t too strong a word – Wolf is already being compared to artists such as Janis Joplin, Nikka Costa and Joss Stone"
"In Lauren's renditions she stays true to the original artist but no doubt, she makes them her own with her raw and soulful style. Then there are the original songs, One Day, Secrets, and You Are are just a few of my favorites. They're full of feeling and soul as well, sung by one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard." "I gotta get to a Lauren Wolf live show...besides knowing I will be rocked right out of my socks, I've heard that for her meet and greets before the show she serves Booze Balls (a delicious bite of dessert, filled with booze - two of my most decadent pleasures), that she makes herself! Man, can this chick get any better?"
"When you hear a voice with such potential and versatility, you just know that there are more great things to come. It's always exciting to hear of and follow artists before they become a household name." "Her voice is not just power, but it is power, tone and beauty combined. She's also a single mom (6 year old daughter) which must be a huge challenge to balance with the type of energy this industry must take."
