Lauren Nikohl is a genre-bending singer & songwriter with a soulful, powerhouse voice. Her primary genres include indie-pop, pop-soul, pop/rock, and EDM. A native Minnesotan, this talented artist is now making big moves in Los Angeles. While some of her music is reminiscent of "Stevie Nicks meets Sia", other songs edge closer to "David Bowie meets Jess Glynne".
This budding songstress began singing, playing guitar, songwriting, and playing piano, all before the age of 10. She grew up with a dad who loved to create and play music as his favorite past time, and was inspired by his passion and artistry. Her life-long love for the performing arts has expanded over the past few years into a driven passion to create meaningful change in the world through her music.
Lauren released her debut indie-pop/soul EP, "The Night" in June 2015, half of which is self-produced. She has also released a few R&B collaboration tracks since 2016, and released an EDM/Soul single, "Against the Wind," with Grammy-winning and Billboard-charting producer Robert Eibach in 2018. Her next single, "Grateful For This Day" (releasing on October 16th, 2020) is an indie dance-pop jam that is sure to induce positive vibes amid the chaos of this year's events. She is also currently working towards her first full length album release, “Ascend”, that explores universal consciousness and self awareness.
This young artist's mission is to delve deep into consciousness with her lyrics and spread awareness of the connectedness of everything. She hopes that she can help shape mainstream culture into a more compassionate and thoughtful entity by exuding optimism, writing songs with substance, and presenting herself as a role model for young men and women to be more motivated, mindful, and empowered in a country where insecurity and depression are way too common.
Lauren Nikohl hopes to take over the music industry, not only as a superbly talented songwriter and performer, but as an intellectual entrepreneur, and an inspirational leader for generations to come.
