Music has been a part of singer-songwriter Lauren Eylise’s heart and soul for as long as she can remember. Singing since the tender age of 2 years old, music emerged as an innate form of expression for Lauren. Though her formal education in music was scarce, Lauren’s craft was propelled by her passion and life experiences.
Lauren Eylise’s genre-defying music can only be accurately categorized as eclectic-soul, as an array of influences make up her sound. Her commanding vocals and acoustic stylings exude an indie-folk style with R&B overtones that easily appeal to the energy of Pop music. When armed with her full band, the soul singer’s sound fuses funkadelic rock and electric blues. She is unapologetic, autonomously sensual and vulnerably transparent in her music and presence.
Lauren’s sophomore album This Is Personal is an emotional exploration of the peaks and valleys of both love and life. True to her style, Lauren explores an array of genres -- from the emotionally aggressive songs like Bad Choices and Overdose showcasing rock & soul tones comparable to Tina Turner and Prince, to the stripped, sensual and seductive notes of tracks like Joyriding and Devour Me.
