Friday 19th November – Lauren Housley

“A wonderful emerging Americana act, I really love her music” Bob Harris

Quietly and without any fanfare, Lauren Housley has created her own niche as one of the UK’s finest singer-songwriters.

She blends catchy hooks with her unmistakably soulful, and uplifting voice, creating music that boasts elegantly crafted, deeply melodic, intelligent song writing, resounding with echoes of the pop and soul classics of the 1960s, Carole King, Carly Simon, Alanis Morissette, Eva Cassidy and Regina Spektor: her music is infectious, emotional and powerful.

“Being a deeply empathetic person led me to channel my emotions into poems and songs, with a hope that they would bring some comfort, joy and understanding to people.” Lauren independently released her debut album Sweet Surrender in 2015, quickly garnering acclaim from fans and fellow musicians.

Lauren was invited to perform at the 02 Arena in London as part of Bluesfest, alongside some of the artists that have inspired her, including Van Morrison & Tedeschi Trucks Band. As well as opening stages for Vintage Trouble, Jack Savoretti and Van Morrison, Lauren has performed with some of her favourite, inspiring female contemporaries including Yola and Klara Soderberg (First Aid Kit).

Lauren’s new album ‘GIRL FROM THE NORTH’ was released in April this year. Dealing with love, loss and the turbulence of growing up and learning about life, Lauren brings a refreshing air of optimism and heart-warming hope with an empowering belief in oneself to overcome obstacles.

“An Americana-tinged singer-songwriter with a Bonnie Raitt-style twang, a winning way with a yearning lyric. Housley is her own woman…she’s as convincing as they come.” Q
