Lauren Strange has earned her stripes performing alongside the likes of Taylor Swift, Phil Vassar and Passion Pit, and won the 2010 John Lennon International Songwriting Contest with debut EP “The Strange.” Three-track EP “Say Yes” is just her second release, but Strange has continued to display growth as both a performer and a songwriter.

Lauren Strange CD“I write from personal experience,” she says. “I’ve been writing and creating since I was a little kid, and it comes very natural to me.”

The Memphis-born, Nashville-based Strange taps into her rock side on “Say Yes,” ably backed by first-rate band The Pretty Killers. The results are terrific. The rollicking title track is the best some of the bunch, but “Johnny” and “Runner” are almost as good. Happily, plans are in the works for a full-length album and we’ll have more of her music to enjoy in the near future. (Jeffrey Sisk)
