Lauren had a spectacular 2018. In addition to releasing her critically acclaimed debut album Well, Hell, she has shared stages with Keith Urban, Shirley Manson, Eddie Vedder, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Shakey Graves and Liz Phair, played to sold out crowds in LA & across the US. She also celebrated Grace Slick’s birthday by releasing her rendition of Jefferson Airplane hit single “White Rabbit” and a seven song Doors tribute album for Jim Morrison’s 75th, called “Happy Birthday Jim”. Ward’s trajectory continues to ascend with accolades from NYLON, Noisey, Consequence of Sound, The Los Angeles Times, Indie Shuffle and Wonderland. She was also featured on on Spotify's New Music Friday Playlist, along with American Apparel as a part of their “Meet Lauren” campaign. Most recently, Ward went into the studio with renowned hitmaker/songwriter writer Billy Steinberg and Australian legend Mark McEntee -- the founder/guitarist of the Divinyls. The trio had a blast together and recorded a beautiful rendition of Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself”.
A prolific artist in every medium she touches, Lauren has been a hairstylist for 9 years, while at the same time shifting her creative focus to her music in partnership with her co-writer and guitarist Eduardo Rivera. On Well, Hell, Lauren’s arresting vocals slice through classic rock instrumentation delivered through the perfect modern filter of her band. “Did I Offend You?” and “Blue Collar Sex Kitten”are two of the many standout tracks on the album, showcasing the duo’s intricate yet playful songwriting and lyrical wit. Stay tuned for more opportunities to experience the band’s effervescent brand of modern psych-pop in a city near you!
