UPDATE 11 MARCH

Firstly - The Single from the album came out on the weekend - here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEVq7fhFQxg

It's also on spotify - Be My Lover -  Lauren Lucille

The album has been mastered, and the cover art is being done as I type. I will send all my donors a copy as soon as it's printed! 
------------


Thank you for being HERE on this lovely gofundme campaign page to see what I'm up to!

So..... here we go! 

I've been wanting to record another album (or 3) for a few years now and all of a sudden it's happening - and with one of London's top producers Troy Miller!! (He's worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Laura Mvula, Jamie Cullum, Gregory Porter, Lianne la Havas, Roy Ayres and Chaka Khan to name a few)

We start on the 3rd of October and we'll be in for about 2 weeks over 2 months. I can't say when the album will be ready, but I'd say early 2019.

I'm really excited  to sing in the studio again after many years, to share the full length, fully produced songs I've been writing for the past few years. I'm going to have some of London's finest musicians (award winning) playing and the songs we've chosen are a really interesting mix,  so this album is going to be almost as much as a surprise to me as it is to you! I promise it'll be pretty good though!

I would just love it if you could help me achieve this huuuuge dream by pre-buying the album, or for more moolah you can have a concert in your home anywhere in the world or, come and join us in the studio to just hang - or/and sing/say/play something into the mic and it will end up on the final recording- with your name in the credits of course. If none of the incentives suit you - name your price and what you want - I'm sure I've missed something I can share/give with you!  

Any questions, please ask, and if there's anything you'd like to help with besides the money part - let me know!

I am incredibly grateful to my fans (and friends and family) from all the years, and my new fans and friends - welcome!!  

Sending so much love to you and hope to see you soon xoxox

Hi everyone!

I realise that I haven't delivered all promised goods.
First thing being the Vinyl (if you ordered the vinyl). I can't afford to do it right now, but I'll do it when I can. I promise. I'm a woman of my word, so hang tight. Secondly I haven't sent the merchandise to those who ordered that. I can't afford to do that either (fancy that!!) but will do it as soon as I can.

Living in London is tough - and has been even tougher since I got back from Australia. Beautiful weather, incredible friends and supportive people around - but hardly any work at all. So I'm doing some other things to get some money coming in but nothing pays as well as teaching!

Anyway - no complaints here, just facts. I am working really hard and working through a virtual manager program online to see if I can really focus on what I need and want to do.

Again - THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for helping make my dreams a reality.

Stay tuned for news and thank you for your patience.

Lots and lots of love to you all.
Lauren xoxo

For everyone on this list!

I really couldn't get my act together about merchandise soon enough to come out with the cds. For those of you who contributed enough for that 'prize' - it'll come - don't worry!

Also - For those of who you contributed enough, who would actually make use of, and wants a vinyl? xo

Hi everyone!! My fabulous supporters!

This message is for my Brisbane/close to brisbane supporters;

The time has come!!

The Brisbane launch of THE album is THIS Saturday at 8pm at JMI Live :
10 Exhibition Street, Bowen Hills, 4006.
($20/$10)

It would be great if you could let me know if you were coming.

If you can't make it, but would like to know about other gigs I might have while I'm here, let me know and I'll make sure I tell you personally.

(note: there's a potential gig at lunch time in Queen Street Mall on the 2nd of May. I leave for London that evening so it will be the last chance to see me. I also hope to have one more (house) concert before then.)

For those of you who want the physical copy of the cd, they will be there for you so please do not forget to pick up your copy/copies!! It saves sending them to you later!!

So looking forward to seeing some of you there!
Please make time to come and hug me and say hello no matter how 'busy' and 'distracted' I may seem. It will sadden me if I don't get to see you to thank you in person! (if you have to rush off, just interrupt to say a quick hello!)

Thank you so much for being part of the recording of this album. You've blessed me immensely.

Lots and lots of love,
Lauren
xoxo
