Lauren plays on an acoustic Italian violin dating from 1800s, her electric violins include a green marbled four string Bridge Aquila, a purple and black sunburst 4 string Bridge Aquila and a Ted Brewer clear perspex light up violin.
Lauren first started playing the violin at the age of 9 through her primary school in North Yorkshire, England. Her love for the violin grew through listening to artists such as Bond electric string quartet, Nigel Kennedy and Vanessa Mae. Lauren’s first violin teachers introduced her to Folk music from around the world, which also has a strong influence on her music today. From a young age, Lauren knew that she wanted to be a professional violinist.
After finishing school, Lauren went to study at the Royal Northern College of Music where she studied classical violin. Although studying classically, her passion for cross-over, folk and cultural music was always a strong influence in her playing. During her studies at the Royal Northern, Lauren purchased her first electric violin, the green marbled 4 string Bridge Aquila.
After graduating from the RNCM Lauren began work on her fusion violin show and set up her own business as a performing soloist. Lauren’s passions for culture and world music lead her to learn Bollywood violin, which later lead to an interest in Indian classical music. Lauren also employs the use of improvisation within her performances due to her interest in Jazz and folk music. This combination of cultural influences has resulted in Lauren’s unique fusion violin style.
Lauren is now lucky enough to travel the world with her performances. She has recently played shows in Spain, France, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Germany, and is looking forward to the year ahead when she will be flying out to Sri Lanka, Rio, Argentina, Chile, Oman, Egypt, The Maldives and Barbados.
