A singer songwriter invested in the power of music as a means by which to advocate, to voice, to care and to heal.

Lauren Monroe is an accomplished musician, healer, noted author, and speaker. As a globally recognized advocate for mental health awareness, PTSD therapies, Suicide Prevention and Crises Healing, these themes are echoed in her music, which have been featured in a global streaming benefit concert, New York Fashion Week Runway, and several award- winning independent films such as Wild Horses and Renegades, Spirit Riders and Horse Medicine.

Profound and life-changing experiences have allowed this Artist to mirror love and compassion into healing and into her music: the soul nourishing power of music to help us face adversity.

Her new album “Under the Wolf Moon” has been termed “12 tracks that illustrate the healing power of music”. The prevailing theme underlying the music is that of transformation…and that speaks to the core of the Artist. The transformative power of her music and that of taking on the challenge of the unimaginable stresses of a world significantly impacted by a global pandemic. How one copes with changes begins with recognizing the struggle.

At a time in which the music industry is reeling from the loss of touring and live performance leaving career musicians and music industry workers to struggle through this crisis while facing unprecedented loss of work. Lauren Monroe and husband Rick Allen of Def Leppard hosted a global virtual benefit concert with all proceeds benefitting the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund which provides financial assistance to musicians in need. On January 23, 2021 the first Big Love Benefit Concert aired providing immediate financial and emotional health assistance to career musicians and industry workers. Performances by Rick Allen, Lauren Monroe, Wynonna Judd, Billy Idol, Bret Michaels, Matt Sorum, Allman Betts and others resulted in an extraordinary concert. The Big Love EP, BIG LOVE VIDEO by Lauren Monroe, and for which the benefit concert is named, was released over the summer during the first Covid-19 lockdowns, performed at New York Fashion Week 2020, and is a significant track on “Under the Wolf Moon” LP released in July.

Cornelia H., Monterey CA

“Lauren Monroe’s music is captivating. I was immediately drawn into the lyrics and felt her heart and soul speaking to me. She’s emotionally attached to everything she sings and I couldn’t help myself and was brought to tears. I was also so happy to see her let loose and get lost in the happy songs. Her whole performance took me on an unexpected journey that I cannot wait to go on again.”

Jill C., Miami FL

“A little over a year ago Lauren Monroe and Rick Allen hosted an event for Wounded Warriors that featured a concert hosted by Lauren whom I had never seen perform in person. This was beyond a concert it was a coming together of people to share the common respect and understanding for our troops that came back from war not the way they left . This was not just someone getting up on stage and singing to us, Lauren pulled you into a place with her tales , lyrics and beautiful presentation that brought me to tears a few times.

I am a Viet Nam vet and since I returned fifty years ago I have never listened to a person with such passion that shows she really cares for all the wounded soldiers mentally or physically ;to me this was the WELCOME HOME I never experienced because of the protest. Lauren’s music is gentle and soothing that gave me comfort like some sort of therapy while at the same time it expressed the drive and determination she has to make sure all the wounded heal at least mentally . ”

Jon A., Monterey CA

“Attending Lauren’s performance at Folktale Winery in Carmel, we were entranced by her vocal presence for the very first time.  Lauren’s rich, gorgeous voice envelopes and guides the listener towards healing and feeling welcome in her presence.  The lyrics for The Color of Snow,  Blaze, My Love, Love Won’t Let Me Down prove there can be beauty in the ashes of our lives.  She is surrounded by amazing musician’s and background vocals which results in a powerful journey that brings forth empowerment and hope each time her songs are listened to.  Having the honor of knowing two of the musicians in the Color of Snow recording personally, the level of synergy and talent her band brings is a beautiful foundation for her voice to transcend and send a strong message of love and hope to the listener.  No matter the genre one listens to, Lauren’s music is worth exploring and adding to your playlist!”

Marta F., Salinas, CA

Lauren Monroe’s music is a gift to the soul! Her lyrics are infused with compassion, insight, and empathy for the human condition. Her songs are soulful, rich, and timeless. Her voice is the sound we didn’t know we were waiting for, a clarion call for the new decade. And she is one hell of a fantastic performer!

Tom C., Kirklyn, PA

“My wife and I went to Lauren’s show not knowing what to expect. We were totally blown away with Lauren and her bands performance. Laurens voice is something special and inspiring. We hope to see her again sometime soon. It was cool to see her husband Rick Allen banging on the drums with her as well! ”

“Spending a few hours randomly playing music on Soundcloud on a lazy Sunday, I stumbled upon Lauren Monroe. Wow! This is a spectacular new artist who I’ve never heard about until now. Listening to this sneak preview of her new Ep ‘Big Love”.. slated for release in the summer of 2020, I was entranced, surprised and seduced by the unexpected musical treasures unveiled. “Everybody’s fine living in anger, from sunset to dawn they’re taking it to home” sings Lauren Monroe on “Big Love,” the transcendent opening track on her new album, whose powerful message reverberates, hits hard and stays with us long after the song is over, capturing the current zeitgeist and how we navigate these troubled times in hopes of a an all-encompassing big love to overcome hate and division and be our savior.”
