Get to Know Lauren Bush!

Where are you from and how did you get started?

I'm originally from Canada and based in London. I come from a very musical family and pursued music because it was natural thing to do for me. As I got older I realized music was the only thing that made me truly happy. I've been at this for 17 years!

How do you manage your self-care as an artist?

It’s really hard to do. I have a list of things I should do but whether I do them is another story. I try to fit exercise in every day. Being in London there are lots of green spaces but it’s a large city so it’s important to find nature to clear your head. The #1 thing for me is getting enough sleep. I try to be really open and honest about my mental health so I share that aspect of my life with my friends and family. I’m not made of steel or always perfect and it’s a journey. Other people need to know that. It's important for me to be honest about when it’s hard and offer support to other people when they find life hard. Support systems are everything!

Do you have new releases or upcoming shows you would like to share?

I have an album "Dream Away" releasing in October! I took advantage of the fact my musician friends could record in quarantine. It took a year to get everything ready for the launch date in October. It’s been 5 years since I released my debut. I’ve grown a lot and my tastes have changed. I've opened myself up more to collaborating and taking more chances. I never thought I would do this so now that it's happening I am excited to be more innovative. I'm a Jazz musician first and foremost and love to mix classic jazz with pop and revamp it into my own sound.

What is challenging with wellness and/ or mental health as a musical artist?

It's a challenge to keep all the plates spinning. You want your image to be a reflection of what others want to pay to listen to or see. Being creative can be really draining. It involves a ton of energy and focus. It's important for other creatives to know they are not alone and that it's okay to not have it all figured out. There is a stigma around creatives outwardly acknowledging these things and it shouldn't be that way.

Tell us about your mission as an artist!

I want to be successful but it’s hard to know what I mean by that. I want to be respected by other artists. I want to make a living as a singer. I just want to be filling theaters with people who love my music and I want to be proud of the product. Anything else is just icing on the cake!
