After releasing her album ‘Dearestly’ in 2016 with a 50 date Canadian tour, west coast songstress Lauren Mann took a few years off the road to find her muse again, soaking up the inspiration of her Gulf Island home and devoting her time to writing. In the process she became quite involved in her local arts community, leading songwriting workshops, collaborating with other musicians, and helping to launch arts programming in visual arts, filmmaking, music and dance through a local arts organization. This creative diversification continued to inspire Lauren’s own artistic pursuit, giving breadth to her already varied musical abilities. She has explored new directions while maintaining the authenticity that has attracted listeners to her sound since the beginning in 2009.

Late 2018 marked the release of ‘Innocence’ – Lauren's first single since the album ‘Dearestly’ – and an accompanying music video. The song itself is a harkening back to simplicity, remembering and reclaiming the past in order to move forward in a new way; a striking parallel to her own personal journey of the past few years.

With three albums and hundreds of shows already under her belt, Lauren is taking her new energy and a fresh collection of songs on the road once again with a fifteen show full band tour from Pender Island, BC to Montreal, QC. Marked by a maturity that carries deeper honesty, tangible vulnerability, and a renewed effervescence, she’s taking herself and her music back to her roots: finding connection and common ground through creating authentic art.

Elevator Pitch

Lauren Mann brings together inspiration from her home on the west coast to create a sonic tapestry that is both earthy and ethereal, with poignant honesty woven throughout. Her haunting and honeyed vocals tell tales of journeys traveled, love and loss, and all the complexities in between. With dynamic soundscapes and textures, her songs hint at influences from Kate Bush to the Beatles, but at the same time remain completely unique.

Winner of the CBC Searchlight contest in 2014, Lauren spent five years traversing North America with her band, enchanting audiences and critics alike, before settling on British Columbia’s Southern Gulf Islands. Her latest album Dearestly, produced by Josh Rob Gwilliam and Howard Redekopp, is a moving narrative of dark and light, chronicling years of touring and personal joys and struggles and traveling from moments of sparse simplicity to bombastic choruses, anchored by Lauren’s vocal prowess.
