- Purchase "El Dorado" CD Baby
Co-Produced by Grammy Nominated Producer, Mooka Rennick, this is Lauren's most mature & masterful work to date; These songs carry the listener on a finely crafted journey through loss, strength, & redemption. Dedicated lovingly to her late husband, Judge.
Funded in part by Kickstarter backers, "El Dorado" is Lauren's first Solo Cd in nearly a decade. Recorded, Mixed, & Mastered at Prairie Sun Studios in Cotati, Ca., this highly anticipated 10 song offering is her most mature & masterful record yet. "El Dorado" features the talents of Nashville Multi-Instrumentalist of the year, "The Alien" Will Kimbrough (Rodney Crowell/Emmylou Harris), Mark Karan(Rat Dog), Ryan Scott (Monophonic Horns), and more. While Lauren's writing has been compared to Emmylou, Patty Griffin, and other prominent women on the Americana scene, she is a force of her own, being described by Relix Magazine as "Lady Willpower", writing "songs from the heart that sweep you off your feet"(Jambase). It has been said that great art can emerge from great tragedy, and this CD is proof positive. It is not only a moving tribute to her late husband Judge, "El Dorado" is a founding cornerstone of Lauren's "new life" that she is placing firmly in the halls of the music world, and deeply in the souls of her fans.
