Exclusive: 5 Questions with Loft965.com: Lauren Pritchard
1. Loft965.com picked you as an “Artist to look forward to in 2011.” How do you feel about that and what do you think this year holds for you?
I’m super excited and flattered to be picked as one to watch! I’m excited for another year to be out in the world playing music and getting my album out there. There were so many surprises and twists last year and I hope that 2011 is the same.
2. We love “Stuck.” What will be your next single?
Yes and I’m so glad. Its one of my favorites on the album, it’s a very personal tune. I shot the video for it the last week of January. It’s a Bonnie & Clyde-type piece featuring Michael Socha from “This is England” & BBC’s “Being Human”. We had a blast, he’s an ace guy and an ace actor.
Her daughter, Riley, is one of my closest friends and I was having to move back to TN because of family reasons at one point while in Los Angeles. They were kind enough to let me stay with them. They’re like my surrogate family and very dear to me.
4. Your debut album, Wasted In Jackson, is already out. How would you describe it and who were you influences?
I would describe it as a storybook journey of the last few years of my life, including moving to a new country, shit breakups and looking at life. It was influenced by a few different things, I wanted it to be a very honest, soulful record, so I made it a point to do the writing as upfront and truthful as possible. Musically i wanted it go on a journey as well having some rock moments, country moments, even true to term singer/songwriter moments. I think Eg White (producer) and I did that as best possible.
5. We love quotes, what is your favorite quote or motto?
