TI Exclusive: Lauren Strange On Biggest Dreams And Her Music!

 

 

Meet Lauren Strange! On the outside, this Memphis, Tennessee native is just a normal girl.  But to those who know her or are beginning to to know her name, she is a talented songwriter and musician who has been an award winning songwriter since she was only 9 years old!

Lauren is backed by her band, The Pretty Killers, and has just released her first EP: Say Yes. 

Don’t think that this is all you are going to here from Lauren, however.  Plans for a full album are in development and we think this down to earth girl has the makings to fulfill her wildest dreams!

Read through the interview below and head over to Lauren’s YouTube channel to check out her AMAZING talents! You can also keep up with Lauren on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and her personal website!

 

Who is your role model? 

I have lots of strong women in my life that I admire greatly, and I’ve always hoped to be as independent and driven as my own mother. Some people are scared to death of turning into their parents, but if I can become half the woman my mother is, I’ll be happy.

 

If you could pick one track from the EP, what is your favorite?

“Say Yes” is one of my favorite songs that I’ve ever written. I think it turned out really cool, with the doubled vocals we recorded and also the guitar parts that Rob laid down. I showed him “Last Goodbye” by Jeff Buckley and told him I wanted this song to take on that kind of energy. He nailed it in one take.

 

What was the first song you ever wrote about? 

The first song I remember writing was when I was about 9 years old, and it was about not giving away your heart. I wish I had listened to 9-year-old me!

 

What is your favorite thing about songwriting/making music?

I love the feeling when a song is complete. It’s almost like creating a journal entry and being able to let all of those feelings just run and take a life of their own.

 

What instruments can you play? Which instruments do you not play but would love to learn? 

I play guitar (electric and acoustic) and piano/keyboard. I don’t play drums but I would love to learn! I would also love to be able to play bass well.

 

If you could have lunch with anyone-past, present or future-who would it be? 

I would love to have lunch with Kathleen Hanna. She’s such an incredible inspiration to me and other girls everywhere, and I’d love to hear personally about her experiences as an artist and all around awesome human being.

 

What is your biggest dream?

My biggest dream is that I could be able to do this full-time. I would love to tour extensively with my band and be able to write and create all the time. That’s the goal.
