Songland Season 2 & Lauren Martinez
Hello Lauren! Please tell us where you're from and where you live now! I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I live Pasadena, California
When did you realize music was going to be an important part of your life? My greatest influence has been the love for music I’ve had since I was a baby. I started playing piano when I was 3 years old and since then, music has always been my life. Who is your greatest influence and why? People who’ve influenced me were artists like Ellie Goulding and Alicia Keys. I used to listen to Alicia Keys CDs with my boom box when I was a kid and I had her piano sheet music books. These two artists are a big reason why I started writing songs! Tell us about your latest and greatest!!
I was recently on the tv show NBC Songland Season 2 pitching to Luis Fonsi. It was an incredible experience! And a collaboration I worked on is coming out under Trap Nation soon, which is very exciting! My website is Laurenismusic.com
