It's not often that a young artist in the music business can be described as "an old soul," but that description fits a young singer, songwriter, and musician from Raleigh, NC, named Lauren Nicole. Whether performing acoustically, or pounding out alternative rock songs with other musicians behind her, Lauren Nicole's original music inspires fans with her thoughtful lyrics, uplifting messages, and intricate melodies and progressions.
John Moyer, founder of "Uncle John's Bands" Management Group, had this to say about her talents. "I have been involved with hundreds of artists over the years, and only a few have touched my soul the way Lauren Nicole's music does. She is a gifted songwriter and performer. Lauren Nicole is truly special!" As a result, Moyer recently signed the artist to an exclusive management and representation deal with Uncle John's Bands.
2010 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Chip Shearin, discovered the young artist after hearing her sing in a Raleigh karaoke club at the age of 14. The renowned independent record producer and accomplished bass guitarist agreed to produce her first album of original songs, released in December. Commenting on the young artist, Shearin said, "Lauren's blend of song writing and singing will vault her to lofty places few have achieved! Her story is taking off. Don't blink!" And he should know.
Shearin, a North Carolina native who splits his time between Raleigh and Los Angeles, has worked with numerous talented artists such as jazz saxophonist Marion Meadows, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, Michael Bolton, and YahZarah. In 2010, he was recognized by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, for his iconic bass line recorded for the landmark 1979 rap song, "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang.
Scott MacConnell, drummer for the Raleigh, NC band, Far Too Jones, was instrumental in connecting the young artist with the producer. After seeing and hearing Lauren perform, MacConnell reached out to Shearin and urged him to come out and listen to the young singer. "Besides her incredible voice, I was blown away by her poise and stage presence," said MacConnell. "With some breaks, she could be big!"
Lauren Nicole is an upcoming artist whose music is destined to be heard.
