Lauren Balthrop on SoundBetter

I've sung and played on records for artists such as Bob Weir, Kevin Morby, Benjamin Booker, Elizabeth & the Catapult to name a few. I have a clear soprano bell-like voice (I can sing REALLY HIGH!). I'm also a touring and session side musician playing keys, guitar and percussion as well as singing back up.

Lauren Balthrop, a folk-pop singer songwriter hailing from Nashville, has a crystal-fueled voice. Her newest single Your Time Will Come is an upbeat pop song with a relatable message, one of unrelenting hopes and dreams. The single arrives almost exactly one year after her debut album This Time Around and features Pete Lalish the guitarist from Lucius on guitar, Jesske Hume from the Felice Brothers on Bass and Jason Bemis Lawrence from the Building on drums. Her debut album, released late last year on Nashville’s own, Tone Tree Music is a dreamy pop album, produced by Josh Kaufman (Bob Weir, The National, Hiss Golden Messenger, Josh Ritter). The album described by Audio Femme as "the bittersweet sensation of a person, a moment, a time in your life disappearing" is beguiling in its honesty, rich in dark sonic beauty and above all, devilishly playful.

Balthrop has been busy on tour with Kevin Morby, and in the past she has also worked with Bob Weir, Benjamin Booker, Elizabeth & the Catapult, Dawn Landes, Ximena Sariñana and more. She was also a member of the excellent doo-wop trio Bandana Splits, and in 2013 Balthrop released an album under the name Dear Georgiana winning attention from Stereogum who called her songs "absolutely lovely".

    I’ve used Lauren on demos and bgvs and she consistently delivers. She has a beautiful voice and is AleYs able to match the vibe of the song. She’s a very heartfelt singer and always makes my tracks sound better
