Nashville-based Lauren Strange will release her EP Say Yes on December 2. With soaring vocals, powerful lyrics and catchy, pop-driven rhythms, Lauren Strange and her band The Pretty Killers are turning heads nationwide.
Say Yes revolves around the challenges and questions of young adulthood, relationships and love with an extremely honest and fresh take on it. The EP was mixed and mastered by John Netti of Adrenaline Audio (Rival Sons, Sturgill Simpson). Say Yes follows 2010’s award winning debut EP Strange.
Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Lauren Strange has been an award-winning songwriter from the age of 9.
Backed by her Pretty Killers, she forms a genuine bond with audiences. Lauren Strange is not an act to sleep on, blending real artisan songwriting with electrified passion for her craft.
Her first release, The Strange EP, received honors and recognition including the Grand Prize Award in the 2010 John Lennon International Songwriting Contest – Country category, the Lennon Award for the JLSC Country category, First place in the American Songwriter Lyric Contest – March/April 2010, Regional Round Finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong Songwriting Competition, and Fourth Place in the Intel Superstars Competition Country Category.
In 2011, Lauren performed at the historic Ryman auditorium alongside musicians including Chuck Wicks, Phil Vassar, Cheyenne Kimball (of Gloriana), and Sarah Darling at the “Let Us In Nashville – A Tribute to Linda McCartney” benefit concert. Last year, Lauren was invited to sing with Passion Pit as they filmed a set of videos for VEVO in Nashville, which collectively have reached well over a million views on YouTube. She most recently performed as part of “Many Moods of McCartney” with the Asheville Symphony, alongside artists including Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame-r Little Anthony and songwriter Frankie Previte (“Time of My Life”).
She has received praise from many including producer Jack Douglas (whose credits include John Lennon, The Who, Aerosmith). Douglas says, “Wow, [she has] a beautiful voice. I was knocked out by [her] songwriting. I look forward to hearing [her] name mentioned around the studios as a “go to” songwriter and artist in the near future.”
