Featured Artist of the Month – Lauren Dair
Lauren Dair is a young singer/songwriter, born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, she began writing songs and recording her own music. Her winning song, “Monster”, brings an exhilarating blend of amazing vocal performance and a rising synth pop beat. Lauren’s songwriting is centered around catchy hooks and introspective lyrical melodies. “Monster” is a story about the toxicity that can appear in our relationships with others, and the question we have to ask ourselves: can we stay with someone who is essentially destroying us? The song’s triple note feel over a twelve-eight time signature and use of minor keys proves she is more than just a major chord pop copycat. Lauren Dair brings epic, heartbreaking lyrics to her dynamic electronic tracks in style. Stream her new EP “Perfectly Flawed” via Spotify, SoundCloud or Apple Music.
