Lauren Nikohl is a genre-fluid singer, songwriter, and producer with a soulful, powerhouse voice, and she's on a mission to raise the collective consciousness. Her primary genres include Indie Pop, Alternative Dance, Indie House, and Electronic. Born in Minnesota, this multi-talented artist is now based in Los Angeles. Her vocals are a blend of "Adele meets Lana Del Rey", while her music dabbles between "Stevie Nicks meets Jess Glynne," "Chvrches meets Rufus Du Sol", and "Sia meets Monolink".
This budding songstress began singing, playing guitar, songwriting, and playing piano, all before the age of 10, inspired by her music-loving father. Influences include Queen, The Beatles, Frank Ocean, Muse, Jan Blomqvist, Rufus Du Sol, Daft Punk, Neon Indian, Phoenix, and way too many more to count! 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, especially after having a spiritually awakening, out of body experience circa 2016.
Lauren released her debut Indie Pop EP, "The Night" in June 2015. She has since released a few collaboration tracks and singles, including EDM/Soul single, "Against the Wind," with Grammy-winning and Billboard-charting producer Robert Eibach in 2018. Other singles include self-produced Indie Dance-Pop jam "Grateful For This Day", released October 2020, and vibey alternative r&b/electronic track "Karma", produced by Kaysinners, released on 1/1/21. She is currently working towards her debut, self-produced album release, “Ascend”, that explores universal consciousness and self awareness with a unique blend of Indie Pop, Electronic/House, and Alternative Dance elements.
The leading single off the album, "Energy," will be released on 9/24/21, and delves into the infinite nature of consciousness with a high vibe dance beat. Lauren was on a solo hike in Malibu in 2020, and started getting what she calls a "channeled download from the universe", so she started recording the song idea into a voice memo and had at least half the song written by the end of the hike. Some of her best music ideas come to her this way when she is in a flow state or meditative state.
This young artist explores the nature of reality and spreads awareness of the connectedness of everything, encouraging humanity to always choose love over fear. Lauren hopes that she can help shape mainstream culture into a more compassionate and thoughtful entity by exuding optimism, writing songs that ask the deeper questions, and presenting herself as a role model for people to be more motivated, mindful, and empowered in a world where insecurity, anxiety, and depression are way too common.
Lauren Nikohl is taking over the music industry, not only as a superbly talented songwriter, producer, and performer, but as an intellectual entrepreneur, spiritual guide, and light leader for humanity as we navigate this time of great awakening.
