Lauren Flynn Welcomes the Adventure

An air force brat born in Fort Worth Texas, Lauren Flynn aspires to embrace the journey. From New York to Southern California then Colorado and back to So Cal, Lauren has experienced many different environments and support systems. As a child Lauren looked up to her grandfather, who has recently passed, for his love of country music and adventure. Not afraid of taking risks, Lauren began hosting an open mic night. There she would perform covers of her favorite songs adding a bluegrass tempo to each rendition.

Currently residing in Los Angeles, Lauren is enjoying the sunshine along with the strong support system LA has to offer. More recently Lauren released a new EP titled ‘Bad Decisions in the Daylight’ which shares of Lauren’s personal experiences as “the cheated on, the cheater, and the other woman.”

With a love for performing and expressing herself Lauren hopes to tour more and embrace the journey of becoming an artist. You can find Lauren’s new EP ‘Bad Decisions in the Daylight’ via iTunes or by clicking here.
