“Rooted in her signature ability to unveil intimate themes at the core of vibrant sonics, the tracks are laden with relatable themes and a dose of wisdom, showcasing the enlightening core of the album which is set to be a  colorful exploration of visibility and self-discovery”.



Lauren Minear is a critically-acclaimed indie folk-pop singer-songwriter, licensed psychotherapist, and mother based in New York. Her heartfelt lyrics, soulful voice, and undeniable wit have captivated audiences at New York City music institutions such as The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and Brooklyn Music Kitchen.

Lauren’s debut album, Invisible Woman, explores themes of identity, love, and loss, magnified by her experience of being postpartum during the pandemic. The album embodies the basic desire for connection and purpose during a uniquely isolating time. After hearing the title track, Andrea Stople, multi-platinum songwriter, wrote, “[Lauren has] a gorgeous ability to write about difficult things… and really connect…”.

Raised in Nashville, Lauren honed her craft under the mentorship of George Marinelli (long-time guitar player for Bonnie Raitt), folk legend Steve Earle, acclaimed country music songwriter Alice Randall, singer-songwriter Joe Croker, and folk artist, Tom Prasada-Rao. Deeply passionate about mental health, Lauren skillfully weaves her storytelling musical roots with contemporary sonic influences to give language to human experience in a way that is both healing and affirming to her listener.

Lauren’s much-anticipated second album, a colorful exploration of visibility and self-discovery, is expected late spring 2024. Music videos for lead singles “The Way It Was”, “Chasing Daylight”, and “The Sun” have garnered attention from Earmilk, Indie Boulevard, York Calling, and Americana Highways, among others, and have accumulated over 20,000 views on YouTube.

Lauren performs in and around NYC with her band. Her music can be found on all streaming platforms and at

“EMERGES AS A RADIANT BEACON IN THE INDIE-FOLK POP LANDSCAPE… The track captivates with its melodic guitar hooks reminiscent of Dido, coupled with Minear’s soulful vocals that exude warmth and sincerity akin to Sheryl Crow.”
