Lauren Lucille shares her love and life lessons and stories through a musical fusion of folk/jazz/pop. She has a sassy, soulful and versatile voice. Born in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, Lauren was surrounded by music from an early age. Her original musical inspiration came from her parents, in particular the musical family of her mother, renowned jazz vocalist Sharny Russell. She could often be found at her mother’s gigs, learning how to swing before she even knew what swing was. Over the last 10 years, artists such as Kurt Elling, Tierny Sutton, Gian Slater, Sara Serpa, Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap and Ani Difranco have all had a large influence on the way Lauren writes and performs music.
Lauren’s songwriting started at the age of ten, and through her teens, Lauren was writing folk and pop songs on guitar and piano. She is now acknowledged by her peers as a great composer and performer and was twice a finalist in the QMusic Awards for two of her jazz compositions. James Morrison the great Australian trumpet player added one of Lauren’s compositions to his ‘best of jazz’ list for QANTAS international and national inflight entertainment! She is blessed with a magnificent voice, a sound grasp of harmony and sophisticated rhythmic sense.
