A Memphis-born singer/songwriter with a penchant for catchy hooks, harmonies and edgy pop rhythms, Nashville-based Lauren Strange cites influences from PJ Harvey and Liz Phair to the Pixies while simultaneously utilizing her skills she cultivated as a longtime student of classical music.
After being named the Grand-Prize Winner of the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest, Strange relocated from her hometown of Memphis to Nashville, TN in 2011. Once in Music City, Strange cut her teeth as a background singer, making a name for herself as one of the most sought-after young vocalists in Nashville, where she has collaborated with a wide range of artists, including Paul McCartney, Passion Pit, and Little Anthony & The Imperials. Strange’s previous EP “Say Yes” was released in 2014; in 2015 she toured internationally with Jennie Vee (Courtney Love, Eagles of Death Metal) and in 2016 she issued her cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie.”
Strange’s adeptness at songwriting and unparallelled ear for harmonies caught the ear of producer and experienced songwriter Tony Smith (SLEEPER/AGENT), who took Strange under his wing to record the entirety of her 2017 EP “Salt” at his home studio in East Nashville. The duo enlisted the help of friends including Lincoln Parish (formerly of Cage the Elephant) on guitar, to put finishing touches on the project. “Salt” perfectly illustrates not only Strange’s versatility but also her truly unique ability to genre-meld while maintaining a cohesive and relatable artistic vision.
