Title
Music Journalist
Bio
Hello! My name is Lauren and I am a music journalist from Austin, Texas.

Music is my biggest passion and I love everything about it - writing, listening, playing, and the creative and business sides. My musical beginnings started at age 5, when I discovered The Grateful Dead through my parents who are huge fans. From then on, I knew that I wanted to go into music. I started playing drums at the age of 11, and I began playing in various non serious bands when I was 17. When I enrolled in college two years later, I put music on the back burner for years. When I was 21, I decided to move to Charleston, South Carolina, after getting admitted to the College of Charleston, where I wanted a change from my hometown of San Jose, California. After a year, I moved to Austin, TX where I decided to focus entirely on music. I majored in Music Business, Performance, and Technology at Austin Community College, where I graduated from in May of 2013. Listen Here began as a final school project, as a way to combine all of the things I learned in the program. When I decided to become a music journalist, I needed a way to display my skills, so Listen Here was born.

That's The Way (We Did) by Richard Bruce Eells

Lauren Gribble

Hi Richard, 

Thanks for submitting! I'm loving your old fashioned old country sound. It reminds me of Johnny Cash a little bit :) The only suggestion that I can give you is that lyrics are repetitive. The song has good bones but the lyrics could use a bit more detail. 

Thanks, 

Lauren

Hey guys! Thanks for sending me more new music. I really liked the song, though the only thing I would change is the beat. I would have liked to hear the song with a mid tempo beat since the last part of the track was slower. Looking forward to hearing what you send me next.

One Sided Fist Fight by The Flat Stanleys

Lauren Gribble

Hello! I really liked the song. The track has a nice flow to it and everything fits well together. The only thing I would change about it is the phone messages included in the song. I felt that having these in there were a distraction when listening to the music, particularly since I could not hear them well, and it was taking away from the tune's overall sound.  

Cole Connor submitted media.

Lauren Gribble

Hi Cole,

I really liked the song and the shots of the city (I'm assuming its Columbia?) I thought that the video flowed really well and your performance was good. I didn't find anything that needed improvement, just keeping doing what your doing! Feel feel to send me more music in the future!

My sofa by Giulio Taccon

Lauren Gribble

I think your real strength here is definitely your piano playing and you have a real ability to play well. However, I wasn't to into the singing. It was a good attempt at doing both at the same time (which is hard to do,) however your voice did not gel well with the song, and that aspect of the song was a letdown. Other than that, you did a great job.
