Artist Spotlight: Lauren Weintraub

This week I want to highlight a new up-and-coming artist here in Nashville who is taking the music industry by storm. She is a singer-songwriter with  a voice, and story, that needs to be heard. She is none other than the one and only, Lauren Weintraub.

I have known Lauren since our freshman year of college here at Belmont University. We have had numerous classes together, from Survey of Music Business to Publishing. She is someone who can easily light up a room and captivate an audience.

Lauren moved from Boston, MA to Nashville, TN in 2017 to pursue her career through the Mike Curb College at Belmont University. Since moving to Nashville, she has gained critical recognition from many. In 2018, Lauren won first place in The Recording Academy’s Grammy U songwriting contest for her song, “Careful Now”. She has also been named “One to Watch” by the Nashville Songwriters Association International. Lauren officially kicked off her professional career as a songwriter in June 2019 when she signed a publishing contract with Grammy nominee, Brandy Clark, and Big Machine Music.

Most recently, Lauren has become a viral sensation on Tik Tok. She gave viewers a preview of her song, “She’s Mine”, and immediately gained national attention. Within 24 hours, her video had thousands of views and likes. After seeing the success of her demo on Tik Tok, Lauren decided to officially release “She’s Mine” on January 25th, 2021. Since the release of her debut single, Lauren has received national recognition and attention. She has had numerous interviews, articles, and reviews since her debut. Her song now has over 1 million streams on Spotify and initially reached the top of the charts on iTunes the night of release.

It is a song that every girl can relate to. A song with a catchy hook that you can listen to while getting ready or just simply scream in the car. “She’s Mine” is a heartfelt hit about moving on after a recent breakup. You think you’re moving on and getting over someone, but then see them with someone new. The healing process reverts back to square one. “Guess we all got reasons we can’t sleep at night…and she’s mine.” In this song, Lauren shares a real, powerful and raw message through her songwriting that takes us on an emotional journey. Once you listen to it, you’ll never stop.

Lauren is definitely an artist to watch in the music industry. She is coming in hot, taking the world by storm. This is only the beginning. She has future plans in the works for her next release, and I could not be more excited to see where she goes in the coming years.

I got the chance to sit down with Lauren and have a Q & A session to get to know her more as a person and an artist. You can now watch the full interview on my Youtube Channel!
