03.03.2009 - From the annoucement for the March 7th show at the Monterey Outpost, Monterey, KY.
“None other than the brilliant and beautiful Lauren Houston herself. Hailing from Morning View, KY, Lauren has been wooing and winning fans far and wide since her last appearance here. She has one of those wonderfully rare voices than can sing the phonebook or the alphabet and make it sound like a Wagner aria. Luckily she has better muses from which she draws her material, the biggest, best and most significant being herself. Her flawless voice is equaled only by her original lyrics and music and I’m sure we’ll be graced with a bounty of those.”
12.09.2008 - “The real triumph on “Roots & Wings” is the genuine diversity of the songs on the album. It is less a grab-bag of originals that Houston has penned over the years as it is a carefully chosen selection of songs that get to the heart of the matter; family, friends and the land she calls home.” — Read the full review by Cole M Christensen Sentinel-Tribune Arts & Entertainment Writer and freelance contributor
12.04.2008 - “Lauren Houston is a talent. She sings, she writes well and she has that down-home girl next door aura that is neither false nor cliché. Roots & Wings should help Lauren Houston ascend the country ladder, and Fight This War could be the song that allows Houston to look at wherever she wants to be and declare that to be the top. If that song ever gets into major distribution there won’t be anyone in the business who will argue with her.” — Read the full review from Wildy’s World.

Lauren says “Writing has become the most amazing release for me. I carry a note book with me everywhere – you never know when lyrics or a song idea will come about. No matter what happens in life, positive or negative, if I can write a song about it, it has been a success.”
Lauren’s multi-genre blend naturally comes through in her Americana song writing style. Lauren’s song subjects are personal, deep and thought provoking. Her sound is an expressive, eloquent portrayal of life through music. She feels her broad personal interest in music has helped her create a mix of folk, country, bluegrass, pop, blues and soul. Lauren says “I never wanted to be nailed down to one specific genre. I like the fact that I am all across the board.” View full bio…
