Impacting radio March 19
“Rebellious,” “playful,” and “colorful” have all been used to describe Lauren Briant. Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, this country girl grew up on the vivid lyrics and instrumentation rooted in country songs. “I would listen to the radio and sing along,” Lauren remembers, “and I guess when you grow up country, country music melodies and stories are the only ones that make sense.”
Briant ventured into the pop-singer world briefly at her peers’ suggestion, but was led back to her country roots when she was discovered at a local watering hole by famed producer Shannon Houchins (TLC, Usher, Outkast).
Briant is sure to leave a permanent impression with real life lyrics such as those in her Noah Gordon-produced debut single, “Butterfly Tattoo,” which states “My daddy’s gonna kill me if my momma doesn’t first.”
“I feel more of a connection with country music, and I love the way my voice feels belting out Honky Tonk tunes,” Lauren says. “I was never really a fan of the R&B or Pop format, so it seemed foreign to me as a songwriter and performer to pursue a career just for popularity’s sake.”
