Bringing a refreshing glimmer of hope and an abundance of style, Lauren Aquilina is redefining popular music as we’ve come to know it, breathing life, honesty and more importantly re-establishing a lyrical connection with her audience, something seemingly so absent from an overcrowded marketplace. Pulling a genre apart stich-by-stich and re-assembling it brilliantly to her own specifications, in the process capturing a sound so unique, it’s purity inescapable.
Lauren Aquilina is an English singer-songwriter of British and Maltese descent, born in Bristol, United Kingdom.
A trilogy of self-released EPs ‘Fools’ (2012), ‘Sinners’ (2013) and ‘Liars’ (2014) saw the Bristol born teenager propel herself from aspiring songwriter to a formidable young talent, delicately carving out her own space with all three extended plays peaking in both the Official UK Singles Chart as well as creating more than just a splash in no-less-than six Billboard charts with her brilliantly haunting, trilogy concluding ‘Liars EP’.
A string of UK festival dates followed, underpinned by an invitation to headline BBC Radio’s prestigious ‘Introducing’ stage at Reading and Leeds festivals, a performance leaving Aquilina bewildered as thousands of festival goers opted to witness a star in the making over the main stage headliner. A coincidently timed family trip to New York presented the first opportunity to practice her trade stateside, a show which left fans clambering for a ticket for the jam-packed show at Manhattan’s Rockwood Hall.
Balancing schooling with the ever-intensifying desire to write and perform left the self-taught songstress humblingly speechless when she found herself glancing back at the completion of three back-to-back completely sold-out headline UK tours before the ink of her final exams even had time to dry.
2015 will see Lauren’s highly anticipated full-length debut, due to release through Island/ Universal which is sure to only add further substance to her prowess and fuel her already ravenous fanbase.
