“There is something special about stripping a song down to its bare bones and Dazy does a great job with arrangement, giving the song her own sensual twist.” – Surviving The Golden Age

For more information on Lauren Wilhelm (Dazy, The Girl):
Hailing from Tallahassee, FL, Lauren Wilhelm, always considered herself as the “wild flower-child.” At a very early age, Wilhelm learned how to sing, play piano, and guitar from her parents. Over time it would be Wilhelm’s mom that would become her biggest musical influence. It was no surprise, that at the tender age of 13, Wilhelm wrote her very first song beautifully crafting her musicianship and exploring her powerhouse voice.
Emerging onto the music scene, the free-spirited Wilhelm gathered inspiration from many life events and a diverse music background. At the age of 18, Wilhelm formed the band Maradona where she learned how to write pop/rock tunes and sing on stage with a band. After a short Warped Tour stint, the band split to explore other adventures. Fast forward a few years, Wilhelm was ready to branch out and pursue her first solo career.
Never truly falling into one genre, Wilhelm describes her solo music as being, “Poppier than Avril, edgier than Katy Perry, more upbeat than Lorde, and heavier that Adele. It’s aggressive pop with a little rock and intense soul.” In her most recent project titled, Dazy (the girl), Wilhelm paired up with Mayday Parade frontman, Derek Sanders for her first single, “I Told You So” produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount. It was this song that developed Wilhelm to pursue Dazy (the girl) project.
