“Honest & affectionate, with a little bit of whimsy,” is the sentiment behind songstress Lauren Mann’s latest album Dearestly. The songs are a poignant narrative of dark and light set against the backdrop of different landscapes, and chronicle years of touring and personal joys and struggles. Musically, the album travels from moments of sparse simplicity to bombastic choruses, anchored by Lauren’s vocal prowess and beautiful melodies.
The folk-pop singer songwriter from Calgary who recently put down roots in British Columbia’s Southern Gulf Islands, began her career in 2011 with the release of self-produced album Stories From Home, followed by the 2012 release Over Land and Sea, produced by Aaron Marsh and called “a sonic tapestry saturated by sunlight,” by Exclaim Magazine. Lauren’s songwriting captured the attention of listeners and critics alike and her single I Lost Myself reached #2 in the CBC Top 20.
In 2014, Lauren and her band were the winners of the CBC Searchlight contest, rising to the top of over 4500 bands across Canada and named Canada’s best new emerging artist.
Following the success of Over Land and Sea, Lauren surprised her fans with the release of her next full length album Dearestly in 2016, “an album in which each and every song stands as strong on its own as it does within a collective” (Fortitude Magazine). Dearestly was produced by Josh Rob Gwilliam and Howard Redekopp and recorded at OCL Studios in Calgary and establishes Lauren as an adept songwriter and performer.
