Lauren Nikohl is an up & coming singer/songwriter with pop, indie, soul, and EDM influences. Born November 17, 1994 in Shoreview, Minnesota, the young artist now pursues her goals in Los Angeles, California. Her musical influences include artists such as Lana Del Rey, Elton John, Frank Ocean, Amy Winehouse, Panic! At the Disco, Rihanna, Foreigner, Beyonce, Paloma Faith, David Bowie, Jess Glynne, Adele, and Sam Smith. Lauren Nikohl released her debut EP, THE NIGHT, in June 2015, half of which is self-produced. She has also released a few collaboration tracks with artist Kaysinners that edge on the side of r&b, and is now working on releasing an EDM/Soul single, "Against the Wind," with Grammy-winning and Billboard-charting producer Robert Eibach.
Lauren Nikohl began singing, playing guitar, acting in musical theatre, songwriting, and playing piano, all before the age of 10. She also began modeling when she was 16. 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. A few causes that she is passionate about are women's rights, the legalization of cannabis, and vegetarianism.
The budding songwriter's lyrics often portray introspective ideas and inspirational themes. She hopes that as an emerging artist, she can help shape pop culture into a more intelligent 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 made the big move to Los Angeles in 2015, and graduated from the University of Southern California with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication in May of 2017. Lauren Nikohl hopes to take over the music industry, not only as a superbly talented songwriter and performer, but as an intellectual entrepreneur, and a inspirational leader for generations to come.
