Lauren Mann specializes in honest and affectionate pop songwriting with a tinge of whimsy. That sentiment propels her latest album, Dearestly, out now via Wildwood. Her songs acknowledge the battle between dark and light, chronicling her years of touring and the personal joys and struggles that have accompanied her journey. Fans of Adele, Now, Now, or Fiona Apple would dig Lauren’s lilting style.

Lauren Mann’s latest album, Dearestly, is on Bandcamp for “pay what you want.” You should download it.
