Here's what fans had to say about Lauren Molina's music:
"Lauren's songs on "Doo - Be - Doo" are delightful and whimsical, tempered by a touch of knowing comprehension that gives the "pop" some poignant and welcome weight." -Judy
"Lauren Molina's new album of sweet confections recalls the fizzy pop of lemonade on a lazy summer afternoon." -Dylan
"Bathtub gin for the soul!" -Peter
"If Vanessa Carlton and Regina Spektor had been born in Detroit in the 1940s listening to jazz and pop, they might have collaborated during the 1960s and come up with something almost as good as this!"- Sally & Yellow
"...a fresh, effervescent provider of smiles." -Elyse

Lauren Molina is a New York city singer/songwriter, actor, musician, and artist. Her music is inspired by artists such as Regina Spektor, The Ditty Bops, Casey Dienel, Stars, Andrew Bird, Jon Brion, and Rilo Kiley.
Lauren made her mark in the Broadway scene in 2005, starring as Johanna in the critically acclaimed revival of "Sweeney Todd". In this groundbreaking and highly conceptualized production, all ten actors onstage accompanied each other on various instruments, without the aid of an additional orchestra in a pit. Lauren played the cello. Currently, she is on tour with this production, making her way across the country and Toronto. Check out www.SweeneyToddTour.com for tour dates and more info.
Growing up in Detroit with a classical bass playing father and ballet dancing mother, Lauren was constantly immersed in the arts. She began playing piano at 4yrs, and cello at 9yrs. In high school, she taught herself how to play guitar on her dad's old classical guitar, and began writing folk pop songs. In college, she purchased a Martin DM acoustic, which she still plays today.
Collecting and playing new and odd instruments is one of Lauren's favorite hobbies. Recently, she obtained a Lanikai CK-TEQ ukulele, with a cutaway and a pickup. She also loves fooling around on the melodica and any random percussion instruments she can find.
