HOW TO GET INVOLVED
My goal is to help these songs make genuine connections with people on a sensory and emotional level.
I don't want to be a star or popular on Instagram or whatever, that's not the point. The music is the point. I just want to share the music.
So if you would like to help achieve that goal, if you love the songs and what to share that love, here are some things you can do!
SHARE, LIKE, POST, TWEET, FOLLOW - Pick your poison:
Spotify: Follow my artist page, add my songs to playlists, post/tweet a song link to social media, or just text it to someone you think might like it!
YouTube: Subscribe to my channel, share my videos on your socials, add my videos to playlists, or just show one to a friend! ... You could also cover one of my songs and post it on YouTube! (Unlike Prince, I love it when people do that! I will send you chords if you request them)
Pandora: Create/add a "Lauren Hoffman" or "Lauren Hoffman & The Secret Storm" channel (yes Pandora sees them as distinct and separate), Thumbs-up my tracks, tweet #NowPlaying with a Pandora song link, use my music to 'add variety' to your favorite stations.
iTunes: Rate and review my albums!
Real Life: Tell someone you are hanging out with about my songs, old school style! ;) Or tell them that they can:
USE MY MUSIC
In your place of business: Use my music (my Pandora station, Spotify radio, or your own curated playlist, etc) as background music where you work - like a coffeeshop, boutique, bar, tattoo parlor, auto parts store, specialty food shop, cafe, restaurant, etc
If you are a DJ, or make hip-hop or electronic music, you could talk to me about sampling some of my vocals or remixing my tracks
If you're in involved in filmmaking, podcasting, Netflix/Amazon/Hulu shows, "content creation", NPR, or advertising (for a cool product), you probably need music! If you'd like to use of the 56 (soon to be 70) songs I've written and recorded, contact me @ lauren at forlauren.com.
*My songs have been used most notably in the Chloe Sevigny/Woody Harrelson film noir detective movie, "Palmetto", and in several episodes of "South of Nowhere", a TV drama about queer teen girls.
CONTACT ME: for booking shows or other business inquiries, or to say hi or talk about music, hit me up @ lauren at forlauren.com
