WHO IS LAUREN
Lauren Davidson is unconventional, inimitable, and unmissable. Blending New York City vibes with the rich tones of country music, she has created a genre all her own, and audiences and critics can’t get enough of her. Audio Fuzz Magazine described Lauren as “an early Patsy Cline or Linda Ronstadt; with that I can do this myself attitude," while Digital Journal dubbed her “the most underrated female artist” on the scene. She has made countless radio and television appearances, opened up for some of today's biggest stars including Old Dominion, Chase Rice, Michael Ray, Russell Dickerson and Carly Pearce, to name a few, and has performed at the creme of New York venues, Madison Square Garden, as part of PBR’s “Unleash the Beast” tour. She is New York’s own Urban-Country maven.
Born to a musical family, Davidson began singing and performing with her father during her childhood. As she grew up, the two of them started writing songs together, giving her the taste for a career in music. As a unit they have worked on some of her biggest releases, even as Davidson branches out to co-write with other country up-and-comers. Her early offerings “Sometimes” and “Loaded Gun” immediately turned heads with their palpable attitude, vocal explosivity, and a level of lyrical nuance not normally seen in a newcomer. Lauren embedded herself in the New York musical consciousness, before beginning frequent trips to Nashville where she has similarly wooed fans and industry and recently was invited to join the Recording Academy (Grammy) as an Artist Member.
Never one to forget her roots, Davidson created "Urban Country Jam", which are live concert and livestream events that showcase rising country stars and provide a platform for these Artists to engage with a wider audience, as well as industry professionals. All the while she has made her own live show one of the best around, hitting up top-tier venues across the country. In doing so, she has shared the stage with veteran performers like Justin Moore, Rodney Adkins, The Marshall Tucker Band and Country Music Legend, Willie Nelson.
Lauren's been described as “a smooth-as-silk combination of Lady Antebellum and Kelsea Ballerini, gently [mingled with] her own powerhouse gusto” by Popdust. Her work has been met with notable features from press including Taste of Country, Billboard, Whiskey Riff, Sounds Like Nashville, and American Songwriter. Additionally, her tracks have been featured on Apple Country Hot Tracks, Spotify's New Music Nashville, and Apple's New In Country. "The New York native is bringing her unconventional brand of country to our stereos.... and it perfectly showcases her New York country style." (COWGIRL Magazine)
When she’s not selling out her own shows and opening for A-list acts across the US, Lauren is in the studio and constantly crafting new music. In keeping with her brand, Davidson promises that her new music will continue to be “anything but traditional.”
