Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Sarah Hayes.
Lauren, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I learned how to perform in my late teens and early 20s by playing many, many shows in Scotland. I never stuck with a single genre for more than a few years, and I loved getting immersed in different roles and characters that I imagined around what I was playing at the time. Around 2005, a friend of mine moved away, leaving me with a load of music hardware to play around with. There was an old AKAI S1000 sampler, a Lexicon reverb/delay unit, a 16-bit ADAT recorder, an Alesis sampler, and a laptop with an RME audio interface. I still love RME! I moved out of the city to an old farmhouse with some friends and started making experimental tracks and putting them on Myspace.
