Based out of Los Angeles, Lauren Carter, according to GQ Mexico, proves that 'talent and beauty can co-exist.' Viva Glam Magazine states, 'if you love Lana del Rey, you'll love Lauren Carter.' Vents Magazine states, her single Rulebreaker features 'an eclectic melody blending seductive vocals with pounding drums that is a work of pop perfection.' Maxim Magazine called Lauren a 'triple sexy triple threat,' and DJ Fresh, who featured her in music video 'Lassitude', called Lauren 'easy on the eyes, and a pleasure to work with.' As a vocalist, she has a resonant three octave range that can deliver haunting ethereal notes to a full on belt.
Lauren has completed a Masters Degree in Music, resulting in her familiarity with Beethoven and Schubert as well Lana del Rey, Bjork, or Leonard Cohen (all influences.) Featured extensively in her career in magazines such as GQ, Maxim, Esquire, she explores the relationship between audience and performer, the male gaze, and her writing delves into topics concerning sexual politics, female independence, life in Los Angeles, and the 'American Dream.' Combining an exhibitionist quality with an academic/ introvert's soul Lauren Carter continues to push the envelope. In 2016 her track 'Around the Globe' was picked up by Volkswagen for a radio commercial. She is an award-winning vocalist who attended prestigious Northwestern University and University of Southampton, UK and has lived and worked primarily out of London and Los Angeles.
In January 2017, Lauren signed to Waterfall of Colours, a sub label of Ambulance Recordings in Switzerland. A remix of 'American Dream' is slated for release in May 2017. The full EP, 'American Dream', is set for release with Waterfall of Colours in 2017. Meanwhile, Lauren is performing venues in Los Angeles, writing and recording new material, and is in pre-production for her next music video.
