She fronted a rock band with her father and brother (3D ROCK BAND) when she was 16, and became a licensed songwriter and vocal arranger (ASCAP) at 17. Soon after this, she became a session singer and started singing in recording studios all over the Tri-state area. During her career as a singer, Lauren has had the opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall, the Theatre at MSG, Quad Studios, The Stone Pony, Water Music, NJPAC, and even tour in London.
