Lauren Henderson

Jazz and Latin Jazz vocalist, Lauren Henderson, paints reflective and impassioned stories with her haunting voice and enchanting compositions.

Described as “somewhere between a comforting whisper and a cogent declaration” by The New York Times, Henderson's eclectic influences spread across genres producing a distinct yet versatile sound.

Henderson combines her passion for music, philanthropy, and business as the CEO of Brontosaurus Records and an internationally acclaimed recording artist. Recently featured in the Financial Times, Henderson's achievements are celebrated worldwide.

Her original music was recently featured in The Drowning, directed by Bette Gordon and starring Julia Stiles, Avan Jogia, Josh Charles and Tracie Thoms, as well as El Juego de Las Llaves, starring Ela Velden, Maite Perroni, and Marimar Vega.

Henderson's compositions navigate journeys imposed through the African Diaspora in connection to her Panamanian, Montserratian, and vast Caribbean roots as they interplay with her North American upbringing.

The recording artist, composer, and producer from Massachusetts broke the Jazz Week Charts - Top 40 for six consecutive weeks and the Year End Jazz Week Top 100 for 2018 and 2019.

Her recent release Alma Oscura (2019) climbed to the Jazz Week Charts - Top 25.

Lauren's music resonates with listeners in the US and abroad. Having completed well over 10 successful international tours, Henderson has performed in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Norway, Russia, Mexico and South Africa! As the Founder and CEO of Brontosaurus Records, Lauren Henderson graduated with her Executive Master of Business Administration from Brown University (RI) and the IE Business School (Madrid) in May of 2019.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
