DJ Lauren Ruth Ward
Baltimore bred, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter, Lauren Ruth Ward, is back in the studio recording new material as a follow-up to her recent self-titled EP.
While integrating herself into the LA community as a Barber, Lauren is also tirelessly performing at venues such as: The Bootleg Theatre, The Echo, The Lyric, Dirty Laundry, Viper Room, The Mint, Echo Park Rising, Hotel Café and partnering with organizations like SoFar Sounds LA, World Arts, and Play Like a Girl.
Recently enlisting producer/engineer, Grey Goon (Champagne Fever, US Royalty) for her full length LP, Lauren has also partnered with former Paperhaus guitarist, Eduardo Rivera, resulting in songs that draw from early 60s blues/psychedelia to todays pop while still maintaining her distinctly unique vocal style.
When we first got to know vōx, an L.A. based singer, it was with "Money," which boasted dark electronic production that complemented her powerful vocals. She professed her admiration for electronic boundary pushers like Flying Lotus, Shlohmo, and TOKiMONSTA, but today vōx is back with something spare, simple, and poignant.
"Put The Poison In Me," produced by Josiah Kosier, strips things back to the timeless combination of piano and voice, putting the focus on vōx and her lyrics. - Pigeons and Planes
