Authentic. Poetic. Conscious. Raw.

Moved and inspired by artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, and Janis Joplin, Lauren Monroe developed a style producers, musicians, and rock historians have compared to those legendary women of rock and blues. Her sound and vocal quality — raw, sawdust-on-the-floor honesty — combined with the emotional and spiritual power of her performance draws audiences in, invigorates, and speaks to us on so many levels.

Lauren’s second solo album Under the Wolf Moon, produced by Jim Scott, was released in February 2021. It features keyboardist Benmont Tench and drummer Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers); seasoned session vet, lead guitarist Waddy Wachtel (Keith Richards/Linda Ronstadt/Stevie Nicks); drummer Rick Allen (Def Leppard); bassist Bob Glaub (Jackson Browne/Linda Ronstadt/Bonnie Raitt); drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Cougar Mellencamp/John Fogerty) and others.

“I was entranced, surprised and seduced by the unexpected musical treasures unveiled.” ~ Ken Sharp, Music Columnist, on Lauren’s EP, “Big Love”

“Monroe leaves her mark with an arresting and dynamic collection of reflective songs built on sturdy grooves, a sparkling melodicism and deep well of thoughtful lyrics that resonate, delivered by her strong and impassioned voice, which draws comparisons to Shania Twain meets Sheryl Crow plus a whole lotta Lauren Monroe.” 

~ Ken Sharp, on Under the Wolf Moon

“Under the Wolf Moon is made up of 12 tracks that I feel have the power to bring us together… written from my heart…my own stories and my own experiences.   The record is a collection of songs that are written to inspire, teach and heal as we face all of the challenges of life.

“The lyrics are, for me, the embodiment of the soul nourishing power of music to help us face adversity and each song carries emotional and spiritual messages that can open our hearts.  How to trust, how to heal, how to die, how to love and overcome……

“Every song is steeped with symbolism and teachings of healing and connecting to the inner knowing we all carry. This album reflects that journey and our ability to grow and thrive with a deeper understanding of what love truly is.”

~ Lauren Monroe
