Lauren Nikohl is a multidimensional singer, songwriter, producer, and DJ with a soulful, powerhouse voice--and she's on a mission to help raise the collective consciousness through the power of music. Born in Shoreview, Minnesota, this multi-talented artist is now based in Los Angeles, CA. Her melodic music often transcends the boundaries of genre, fusing elements of Deep & Progressive House, Psychedelic Electronic, Alternative Dance, and Indie/Electro Pop. Inspired by her music-loving father, Lauren began singing, playing guitar, songwriting, and playing piano, all before the age of 10. Her official music career began in 2015 with an EP titled "The Night". She began producing her own music in 2020, and her debut, self-produced album "Ascend" released on 11/11/22.
Lauren Nikohl's vocals are a blend of "Adele meets Stevie Nicks", while her music dabbles between "Chvrches meets Rufus Du Sol", and "Sia meets WhoMadeWho". Influences include a wide array of artists like Queen, Styx, Frank Ocean, Muse, Jan Blomqvist, Rufus Du Sol, Daft Punk, Jess Glynne, Who Made Who, and many more.
Since her first EP release "The Night" in 2015, she has 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", and vibey, alternative r&b/electronic track "Karma", produced by Kaysinners.
The young artist's lyrical themes explore the nature of reality and spread awareness of the connectedness of everything. 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 spiritual awakening, "out of body" experience, circa 2016.
During the lockdowns of 2020, Lauren began honing her production and DJing skills, fusing her melodic tunes with electronic and psychedelic dance vibes. Her debut, self-produced album, “Ascend” (released on 11/11/22) explores universal consciousness, spiritual awakening, and self awareness with a unique blend of Electro Pop, Psychedelic Indie House, and Alternative Dance elements. The album is tuned to 432hz, a frequency imbued with sonic healing properties. Lauren's debut album has independently surpassed 300K+ streams.
Lauren Nikohl is helping 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. She is taking over the music industry, not only as a superbly talented songwriter, producer, and performer, but as an intellectual entrepreneur, ascension guide, and light leader for humanity as we navigate this time of great awakening.
