Discovery: Lauren Howell

Lauren Howell is an American singer songwriter who takes on the topic of young love in her new track Part of Me.

By Graeme Smith

We all remember our first love and – if you’re a musician – it’s not uncommon to sing about them. Lauren’s ode stands out for two reasons. First her utterly charming voice and second the detail she has poured into lyrics.

Part of Me is, in a word, lovely. Starting with a simple strummed accompaniment, the arrangement eventually builds to soaring strings while Lauren’s voice keeps the subtle emotion and nostalgia going.

Now based in New York City but originally from Nashville, Lauren is a future star to watch out for. Check out Part of Me below.
