Lauren is a Philadelphia based singer/songwriter and composer. Always known for her introspective lyrics and soaring vocals, Lauren’s music has been heard all over the world. Her voice and songs have been heard in film, television series and even soap operas including “Joan of Arcadia,” “Party of Five,” “All My Children” “One Life to Live, “Dawsons Creek” and her critically acclaimed National Anthem is featured in the Disney feature film “Miracle”. Lauren sings the National Anthem before every Philadelphia Flyers home game, a tribute to her late father, legendary National Hockey League Hall of Fame announcer Gene Hart, known for 30 years as “The Voice of the Flyers.”
Lauren began her career by soaking up the sounds of Philadelphia and studying jazz and musical theater. All of that changed when she got a guitar into her hands and she forged her career in rock and pop music. Lauren was first signed to Columbia Records and later joined
RedAnt/BMG. 6 albums later, 2020 Lauren released 2 singles from her 7th studio album, American Woman. She will begin releasing the rest of the music throughout 2021/22.
The latest record is a collection of songs that address social injustice, racism, pride and love. It is a diary of what its like to be a woman (girl) in America right now. Lauren calls it a love letter to her children that is not only about the here and now but about the dream of what we will become.
In addition to her own music in 2020, she also sang on the track
“Raise Em Up” written by Jethro Sheeran and performed by Jethro,
Ed Sheeran and Lauren to support 2020 school graduates.
Lauren’s talent has allowed her to cross into multiple genres giving her the chance to share some unique stages. She has performed at the Presidential Inauguration, where she shared the stage with Bill and Hillary Clinton, and on the French Riviera, where she lived for several years, performing with such artists as Stan Getz, the Gipsy Kings, Harry Belafonte and Frank Sinatra.

Matt Santry wants you to know that you’re not alone. A line from the chorus of his song, “Change of Scene” sums up his mission as a songwriter…
“When your troubles keep you reaching, but you don’t know what you need
Let me be, let me be, let me be your change of scene”
Matt began his career as a social worker. While working with children with Autism, he started using music in an intuitive way. “Whether we’d bang on a drum or sing a song or I would just play the guitar, music was part of every day.”
Then one moment changed the way Matt looked at music. His client, mostly nonverbal, sang an entire Christmas song, line for line, by himself. In awe of this interaction, Matt was inspired to begin writing his own songs.
15 years later, Matt continues to search for that human connection through his own music. His journey has taken him across the country performing at over 100 colleges, on festival bills with the acts like The Lumineers and Counting Crows, and sharing stages with Joshua Radin, Brett Young, and Delta Rae to name a few.
