About Lauren Barrett

Los Angeles, CA

Hey everyone!! I am a singer songwriter from New Orleans. A lot of my early influences are from my dad (who can play a New Orleans piano like the best of them.) I grew up listening to James Booker and Dr. John. So piano was my first instrument, closely followed by guitar.
I moved to Austin for school and had a regular gig on 6th street.My songwriting career began there and inspite of developing a following in Austin, I moved to Los Angeles to see what the West Coast held for me. Through a mutual friend I met Mike Malinin of the Goo Goo Dolls and in additon to producing my second EP entitiled "This is Real" he played live with me in Los Angeles.

I have had a Los Angeles Music Award nomination, won the Alberto VO5 Red hot rising star contest in 2006. With those winnings I made my latest self titiled EP "Lauren Barrett", produced by Marshall Altman. This past January I played at the Blue Bird Cafe in Nashville and have been writing country feverishly since then. I have come back to Nashville a couple of times this year to cowrite with some great people.
I just finished a successful 9 city tour that ran through Texas and Louisiana. Since Hurricane Katrina I had been trying to get back to New Orleans. So it was really great to play in my hometown again. Looks like I might actually be starring in an indie movie, "Oblivious," that will be shot in Atlanta and New Orleans this summer. I am hoping to place some songs in the sound track. I will be uploading more stuff soon

Let me know what you think of them.
