Jazz Night with Vocalist Lauren Desberg
January 15, 2017

Harlem, NY-based vocalist Lauren Desberg’s songs are not the dated sounds of speakeasies and flappers, nor are they the type to be tucked into small lounges or clubs. Lauren’s voice and music fuse together the past and the present, combining classic jazz standards and measures with today’s popular music and lyrics. She simultaneously pays homage to traditional jazz while adding her own contemporary feel.

Lauren grew up in Los Angeles and attended the prestigious Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA), where she decided to pursue jazz wholeheartedly. She continued her musical studies at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston. There, she won the ASCAP Foundation’s Leiber and Stoller Music Award and sang with the Beantown Swing Orchestra. Lauren recorded her first EP, Sideways, produced by Gretchen Parlato. Sideways and her single “I Wanna Be Like You” were reviewed by NPR and receive airplay on jazz stations worldwide. 

With the release of her first full-length album, Twenty First Century Problems, Lauren bridges the gap between the jazz of yesterday and the popular music of today. Her modern favorites, such as Frank Ocean and Kimbra, influence her sound as much as the past jazz greats which resulted in an album that reflects her diverse musical journey. Welcome to millennial jazz!
