Lauren Glick snd Melissa Alessi @ Loca Madre
Lauren Glick a native of Salisbury MD., and now back living on the Eastern Shore entertains crowds in and around the Ocean City, MD area.
Lauren became serious about music in college where she attended Berklee College of Music. She studied under the best vocal coaches and obtained a Bachelor of Music degree in Film Scoring. She also studied bass guitar which was inspired by her most influential musician Amiee Mann from group Til Tuesday. She is influenced by many other greats such at Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Janis Joplin, Robert Plant, Alicia Keys, Anne Wilson, Carole King, Carley Simon, Joni Mitchell, and Fleetwood Mac to name a few. Lauren began singing at age 10 when she discovered the Broadway show Anne. She also grew up with the sounds of Heart and Pat Benetar which she stills loves performing today. She plays in many venues in the Ocean City, Md area!
Lauren also has three Cds out. Eternity, Love Tangles, and Keep on Moving and she is currently working on a new one to be released in the spring! With her soulful style and her heartfelt lyrics you won’t want to miss out on hearing these!!! Lauren currently plays with guitarist Dave Tarlecki and occasionally with guitarist Melissa Alessi. Both acts focus on fine-tuned harmonies. With the loss of the late great Mike Armstrong her partner for over 23 years it has been a bit tough putting the pieces back together. He died Sept 25, 2016. With that being said she has begun to learn new material for the crowds and will continue to perform in all the most popular venues. She also has a full band including bassist Ted Gelenis and drummer Mike Bevan. Lauren plays keyboards in the band but primarily bass in the duo!
Lauren also teaches voice and piano ranging from the ages of 5-65. She says it’s never too late to start taking lessons. She focuses on playing and theory also gives the students an opportunity to do recitals Lauren also teaches at the Red door where she focuses on the art of performance. We do things like mic technique, positive critique, breathing, diction, battling stage anxiety and many performances where students can practice in front of their peers before taking it to the big stage!
