Lauren Strange who is performing with her band the Pretty Killers down with Brandon to talk about her thoughts on music, life, and what you can expect from one of her shows.
Love Local Nashville: How would you describe your music? What influences you?
Lauren Strange: Organic rock n roll with influences ranging from Foo Fighters to Jimmy Eat World to Ryan Adams.
LLN: How do you approach songwriting? What elements do you try to emphasize?
LS: I write from current and past personal experiences. Even if a part of a song is embellished in some way lyrically, there's always an underlying element of truth. My favorite part of the songs I write is usually the bridge. And who doesn't love a good hook?
LLN: What is your ultimate musical goal? Ideal collaboration?
LS: My ultimate goal is just to be able to continue to write about my life & experiences. I want to be true to myself & what I'm capable of creating. Ideal collaboration? I wanna make an EP at PAX/AM with Ryan Adams.
LLN: Anything special planned for the Halloween show?
LS: You might see me dressed as Evel Knievel...or a cat. I haven't decided yet. Do you have a cape I could borrow? Also, we'll have some glow in the dark merch available!
