Lauren Day is a Sydney Based Singer/Songwriter. Her strong, compelling voice set the tone in a modern electronic sound for her latest releases 'Broken Queen' and 'Give Me one Reason'. Lauren has performed her EP as a feature artist at many events around Sydney and has drawn in crowds with her performances.
Lauren grew up in Wellington, New Zealand and always had a love for music in particular singing since a young age. “I would love to put on shows for my family when they had parties”. Recognising her talent early her mum put her into singing classes at 12 years old. From there her passion grew taking up guitar lessons at school and starting to write songs in her spare time. All was set for a promising career in music until her mid teens when she went through a tough time at school and dropped out at 16 years old. She started hairdressing to support herself and didn't come back to music until she turned 19 when
she met a music manager whilst doing promotion modelling for a KO Boxing event. Showing interest in Lauren, he got her into the studio to record a cover of 'Fever' and later signed her to a Management contract. Lauren recorded one original track on that contract before her manager left Wellington to return to Sydney and cancelled the contract. Determined to get her music dream back on track Lauren joined a few music groups, but the small city wasn't big enough to support Lauren's big dreams, it was time to move to a bigger city.
Since Lauren made her move to Sydney Australia, she has recorded 3 original tracks and produced 4 music video's as an independent artist. Working with some of Sydney's young upcoming talents to bring her visions to life, Lauren is extremely talented creatively having created her own website, music videos, lyric videos, image graphics, and logos. The time had come to give it all she has and she left her fulltime job to pursue her passion full-time. To start with rebranding was in order and she changed her name from Lauren Sampson to Lauren Day and adapted a new sound to her music with the help of producer Brandon Laze who completely understood her vision. “We met at a single launch for an artist he had produced for and hit it off immediately! I sent him my vocals and by the next day he had created exactly what I had envisioned for the track! It was if he had read my mind!”.
The song 'Broken Queen' is about empowering women. “I wanted to write a song that had a powerful message to send. I strongly believe in women’s rights, and it was also something I needed to hear at the time". The idea is that of a fairy tale where the Princess saves herself without the aid of a Prince”. Brandon Laze reproduced the music around the vocals to give Lauren her new sound while still keeping the power and atmosphere of the song. 'Give Me One Reason' was always a favourite of Lauren growing up and she wanted to do a modern Electronic version of the song to bring it back with a new flavour. With the release of cover 'Give Me One Reason” (A childhood favourite of Lauren's) and original 'Broken Queen' both produced with Brandon Laze, the pair have two more singles to release later July, 'Aiming at the Sun' and cover 'Waiting for Tonight' along with another music video. Lauren has performed the new singles at some of Sydney's top events such as Pageant of the World and Higher receiving rave reviews. With plans to start working on an album late 2016 for a 2017 release we have plenty to be excited about for the future!
