Lauren Young is a singer/songwriter/musician performing her tunes in the Baltimore/Washington area. She has a full-length CD already released, and is working on her second. More than just playing orginals shows whenever she gets the chance, Lauren regularly performs 4-hour acoustic cover shows which mix popular hits from the last half-century. Beyond having a more than capable ability on the guitar, Lauren has been described as having one of the greatest singing voices of all time. Powerful and rich, but also sweet and soulful, Lauren's voice alone is worth catching a show.
Now that's how I'd describe myself when I have to be presentable. Yeah, my cover shows are amazing. My voice will knock your socks off (in the best possible way, of course)... but if you ask me about me, for really-reals, this is what I'd have to say: Lauren Young hails from the grizzly streets of suburban West Baltimore in the 1980s, where the bikes rode harder and the neighborhood kids refused to play with her.
She spent most of her formative years locked in the basement pretending to be a pony. Allowed out of her subterranean prison only to watch Dynasty, Lauren's first full sentence was, "God damn it Alexis, I'm tired of your lies!" Other than that, most vocalizations were just whinnies. By her teenage years, Lauren took to menthol cigarettes and bourbon to dull the pain. She had long since come to grips with the fact that she would never spontaneously turn into an ungulate, and in an attempt to compensate, filled her life with country music and ABBA b-sides. After realizing in high school that she was a horrible actress, Lauren turned her attention to the guitar. She wasnt very good at that, either, but she could strum some chords and put together lyrics that werent total nonsense. Thus, the music of Lauren Young was born!
Nowadays Lauren has honed her skills, the guitar playing is quite nice, and the songs are worthy of a listen or two. She's even had a turn at acting again, and this time she seems to be pulling it off. Come see a show or order the cd, and see how far that pony girl has come!
