Lauren Glick

Blues & Soul Singer-Songwriter

If we were in the late 1940s or 1950s Lauren Glick would be called a 'Blues Belter.' Her powerful voice, tempered by the kind of control and projection that comes from a lifetime of honing your craft, has been captivating audiences since she began performing in 1992. Based in Ocean City, Maryland, but performing all over the East Coast from intimate bar shows to festivals to opening for iconic bands like Cheap Trick, Beach Boys and America, her dynamic soulful/bluesy style has often been compared to Janis Joplin. A prolific songwriter, Glick's style is informed and inspired by the likes of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Tori Amos (to name a few). She released her debut album, Eternity, in 1998 and the now out-of-print Love Tangles and Keep on Moving followed soon after. 2017's Martinis in Heaven (her first album to gain wide release on all digital platforms) brought her from regional favorite into the national spotlight and solidified her reputation for creating compelling songs that reflect life's complexities with heart and soul. Her latest record, LUSH, was released summer of 2022 and became her first album to hit the Soul-Blues Radio Chart, gaining radio play in the US and Europe.

Lauren Glick's Latest Release

Lush

Lush

New Album Available Now!
Released June 2022

LUSH (Cozy Records), the title of Lauren Glick's new album, is about as spot-on of a description of the music as you can get. Nine songs that sound as if they've been braised to perfection in her own Blues brand of 'special sauce' for hours on end to bring out every drop of musical flavor. From the opening notes of "Don't Add Up," the lead-off track, echoes of decades of vintage blues, rock and soul all collide in well-thought-out harmony. The guitar-forward "Living In Pain," vintage funk of "Little White Lies" and staccato swagger of "Perfectly Capable" strike a ying-yang balance with the Laurel Canyon gospel-tints of "Poor Boy," "Love and Peace" and "Don't Let The Rain In." Those are all sweetly juxtaposed against the crescendos of “Permanent” and the heavyweight blues ballad “I'm Onto You,” making the album a real showcase for not only her powerful voice, but her strength as a songwriter. "Over the past few years I've really embraced the blues,” she notes. “I've always loved it musically, but I came to realize that, as singer, it's a very comfortable and natural place for me. My voice is really throaty and soulful, that's what flows from me pretty much effortlessly. So I decided to lean into that full-force over the past couple years and that really helped me find my niche." Sometimes it takes a minute to find the right grooves to mine and put it all together in the right way, and with LUSH, she's taken the time to do just that.

Critical Acclaim for LUSH:
"Glick’s vocals gleam and glow... she bridges the homespun blues with the refined, the lush with the straightforward." - American Blues Scene

"With her soulful style and her heartfelt lyrics you won’t want to miss out on hearing these songs!" - Blues.Gr (Greece)
