Lauren received a degree in Commercial Music/Violin Performance from Belmont University in 2014 and since then has been composing and arranging, playing sessions, and touring. She scored her first feature film in 2020 (American Pantheon's "As Real As You Make It"). Lauren's style is heavily influenced by her performing background in orchestral and world folk styles- lots of strings, acoustic instruments, world percussion and rhythms, all of which combined ground her work in tradition while exploring new melodic and harmonic avenues.

Lauren is a graduate of Belmont University with a degree in Commercial Music. Her background in bluegrass and Celtic music lends a unique edge to her compositions and recordings. Her sound is full of lush strings, cinematic world-inspired percussion, and draws elements from her time traveling and performing in Scandinavia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Lauren began scoring for film and television in 2020 when she landed her first feature length film with American Pantheon, “As Real As You Make It” (release date pending). As a solo artist, Lauren has released 2 EPs (Water Music Parts 1 and 2) and a collection of cinematic pieces that have received international recognition and support from noted composers such as Giancarlo Castro D’Adonna, Jose Augustin Sanchez, and Eddy Marcano, as well as radio play on classical stations in both the US and Latin America.
