Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lauren Barrett (June 25, 1981) is an American actress, singer, songwriter, guitarist and pianist. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Lauren Barrett was mentored by her musical father, and began playing piano as a toddler, singing live at venues across New Orleans by the age of twelve. She then added guitar to her repertoire as a teenager. Graduating from the nationally-acclaimed New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), Barrett joins the company of alums Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis and Harry Connick, Jr. While attending the University of Texas, the young performer merged her musical gifts and began playing three to four nights a week in Austin, Texas, building a loyal fan base. The UT graduate's move to Los Angeles quickly paid off when her soulful tone and catchy melodies made her a finalist in Clear Channel/Epic Records' "Be A Radio Star Contest." Barrett invested the contest winnings, reported at $30,000, in recording her own material. Forging ahead and focused on success, Barrett handpicked Mike Malinin of Goo Goo Dolls to produce her.show more
