Lauren Calve

Virginia native Lauren Calve is a Washington Area Music Association-nominated singer-songwriter who has brought a vital new energy to D.C.'s Americana scene.  Lauren's songs are by turn anthemic and poetic as they move between rousing blues-rock, sweeping folk-driven numbers, and delicate balladry. Her strong, soulful vocal style and skillful acoustic and lap steel guitar playing takes inspiration from renowned artists such as Patty Griffin, Bonnie Raitt, and Ben Harper.  Following the release of her acclaimed debut EP, "Between the Creek and the Tracks", in 2014, Lauren is set to start recording and producing her first full-length album with her band, Lauren Calve Band, in Summer 2016.
