Miss Lauren Marie hails from Cape Cod, Massachusetts - a place that isn't really known for turning out rockabilly and honky tonk singers. But she's an exception.
She's influenced by Janis Martin, Elvis Presley, Kay Starr, Johnny Burnette, and Patsy Cline. And although she'd been singin' in the shower and around the house for years, she didn't really take it seriously until a couple of years ago when she met Eric Laufer from the Two Timin' Three - a rockabilly trio out of Boston. Once they found out that she could sing they invited her to sing with the band. Miss Lauren Marie started sitting in with the guys on a regular basis and was booking shows under her own name.
By mid 2005, the Two Timin' Three decided to relocate to the live music capital of the world - Austin, Texas. Miss Lauren Marie figured a change was in order for her as well and made the trip with them.
Inspired by the local Austin scene, Miss Lauren Marie set out to record her debut CD in early 2006. Produced by Billy Horton at Fort Horton Studios, Introducing Miss Lauren Marie is out now on Texas Jamboree Records. The CD features members of the Horton Brothers and the Two Timin' Three.
Since the release of her CD she's been making the rounds, opening up for Big Sandy at the Continental Club and playing with the Horton Brothers at their Roots Tuesday shows at Ginny's Little Longhorn. You can also catch her sitting in with her friends - Shaun Young and Bear & the Essentials.
