Never Reall Done With You

Bio

Lauren Marcus is a singer-songwriter and actress living and performing in New York City. She likes to call her music retro-pop-with-a-touch-of-country, but doesn't mind if you call it whatever you want.

Lauren started performing her original music live in Glasgow, Scotland while studying abroad. She began with open mics and a bright red ukulele, and over the past several years has graduated to playing some of the most acclaimed venues in NYC, including Joe’s Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, Arlene's Grocery, The Path Cafe, Caffe Vivaldi, Le Poisson Rouge, 54 Below, and a whole lot more. That red uke is somewhere in her parents' basement, but nowadays she's onstage with a party of 12. 

Lauren is an alumnus of the Johnny Mercer Foundation Songwriters Project, and released her debut EP, Never Really Done With You, in July 2016. 

As an actor, Lauren is currently making her Broadway debut in BE MORE CHILL at the Lyceum Theatre. She's also performed in way too many Off-Broadway and regional shows to get into right now, but would be happy to delve into it any night in person over an Old Fashioned.

She holds a Bachelor of Music from New York University and Master of Arts from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Lauren has recently been described as "fabulous" (The Boston Globe) and “a powerful force who should not be underestimated” (Stage Door Dish). Backstage has called her a "devilish dynamo", Stagebuzz says "she does not fail to deliver", and Front Row Center strangely but flatteringly notes, "She sings...with a suggestiveness that could push a boy through puberty."

Her EP came out a few days ago, and I have been listening to it non-stop. It’s incredibly intimate, a complete snapshot of the way her mind works. Her ability to convey a story is astounding and her unique voice exudes emotion in the most beautiful way.
