When you see this bubbly personality and energized smile you would never guess that underneath it all is a voice with such a soulful pop edge. Most compare Lauren Light’s style to a mixture of Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Fiona Apple all stirred together. Her music has started to catch an audience with her Lyrics that seem to capture reality. Lauren Light said: “When I write a song, I want to write lyrics people can relate to. Whether it is playful, heartache, or about sappy love; I want them to feel like I am writing their story.”
At the advice of others, she decided to first dive into the music industry world to get her feel for the industry and how it worked. Just a few months after graduating high school she worked for a local music booking company, and took classes at Berklee Online. She received a Master’s Certificate in Music Business/Songwriting and a Scholarship. She has performed with a handful of bands touring from her home town of Lexington NC all the way to New Mexico. She is making a huge splash into the music scene from being named 2012 Best Rock Female in the Carolina Music Awards, winning Kernersville Idol, getting runner up for “Go Triads” Best New Act, and runner up for 2012 Best Vocalist in “Yes Weekly.”
Since starting her live band in June 2011, Lauren and her band have been booked weekly. Playing places such as Everybody’s Day, the High Point Furniture Market, Summertime Brews Festival, First Friday in Greensboro, Kernernersville Spring Foley, and the 2012 Rugby World Cup just for starters. She also just opened for Dia Frampton, of “The Voice” and “Hinder”. Her song “Stay With Me” was featured in a local North Carolina Clothing commercial. And she released two successful music videos and gained press from local and national media.
