Lauren Bush Lauren Bush

Originally born and raised in Canada, Lauren relocated to London to pursue music on a new level just over 3 years ago. Daughter of an accomplished jazz trumpeter father and music teacher mother, it is no surprise that Lauren grew up to have such an aptitude for music. She ignored her gift for many years, certain that music would only be a hobby; taking voice lessons but was too afraid to perform. In 2004, on a whim, Lauren auditioned for her university big band, won the position and never looked back.

Traveling extensively around North America, Lauren has had some amazing opportunities to perform. Some highlights of her career include opening for Maynard Ferguson, performing with her quartet at the Corpus Christi Jazz Festival 2 years running, playing at the Victoria International Jazz Festival, sharing the stage with Bobby McFerrin at the Idaho Jazz Festival and singing in Handy Park in New Orleans. Since moving to London, highlights include playing at Elgar Room, Royal Albert Hall and being a finalist in the Riga Jazz Stage competition in Riga, Latvia.

In 2010, Lauren's quartet recorded their first demo with some unique arrangements of standard tunes like Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise and When You’re Smiling. Three of these recordings have been played on Metromedia Radio out of New York and on local stations in London. Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise has had over 170,000 views on Youtube.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
