Lauren Kay's releases sophomore album Single Mama
AVAILABLE NOW!!! WILL SHIP 1/11/15

Official Release Date: January 8, 2016
Produced, mixed, and recorded by Anthony Crawford
Released by Baldwin County Public Records


2016 starts off with a sweet surprise from Lauren Kay, releasing her sophmore album, Single Mama, on Jan 8 by her new record label, Baldwin County Public Records.  Much like the debut album, Single Mama is personal and intimate.  Lauren's vocals seem almost touchable as they tell of innermost secrets and experiences.   Producer, Anthony Crawford, puts his handprint on the songs and dives deep into the groove on songs like Big Guns, Single Mama, and More to Me with pedal steel, piano, and electric guitar although it's the stripped down sensitivity of Untouched Letter that could choke you up if not give you a complete meltdown.  If all this goodness wasn't enough, this album will include the official video for More to Me as well as an insert with all song lyrics and new photos. 


The official album release date is January 8.  Check the Tour page for CD Release parties in your area, subscribe to the monthly newsletter and join all of Lauren's social media to stay updated on her journey.

Find Your Teeth 

He screeched to the front door with his two brothers, my youngest, and shoved the plastic container holding his first lost tooth right in my face.  "Mommy, I lost my tooth, I lost my tooth!"  "You did?" I asked excitedly. 

He had waited so long...watched his brothers each lose tooth after tooth after tooth, and he just wanted to be big like them.  I remember one day recently when his older brother had lost yet another tooth.  Jonah's bottom lip puckered out like he was about to cry.  "Don't worry," I said…

Lately.... 

Well, it has been an exciting year.  I've moved from Asheville, North Carolina back home here to Pensacola, Florida this past July and have successfully setup roost.  It's good to be back home, though Asheville is just the picture of 3D beauty and culture. The world wide web helps me keep in touch with it all, with all of my supporters, and I'm grateful for it.

What to expect in the near future?  I'll be branching out to different venues in the area and preparing all the groundwork for my first CD.  I know…Read more
