Lauren Sanderson has always sought means to speak her truth. Never one to commit to the traditional nine-to-five life, Sanderson began work as a motivational speaker after graduating high school, traveling around giving TED Talks - but she soon discovered this lifestyle wasn't for her. “At schools I felt like I couldn't be my full self," says the artist. "I couldn't dress how I wanted, I couldn't cuss, couldn't talk about coming out, having a girlfriend... I don't know, it just felt like I couldn't tell the real story." So, she turned to art.
Sanderson began her rap career in 2016 with the release of her EP Center of Expression. Via her tour supporting the project, the artist shared her raw authenticity and fervor for wearing her personality on her sleeve with a widespread audience, garnering a loyal following that helped the Indiana native independently boost her 2018 album Spaces to #1 on the R&B iTunes chart.
So far, 2019 has seen the unapologetic rap empress support Chase Atlantic on their PHASES North American tour and release a series of singles ahead of her highly-anticipated debut album, Midwest Kids Can Make It Big. Undoubtedly one of the most promising hip-hop upstarts, keep an eye out from more unrepentant storytelling from Lauren Sanderson.
