Lauren Ruth Ward grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and now resides in Los Angeles. She performs at a variety of venues around LA such as The Echo, The Mint, Viper Room, Hotel Cafe and more. Her music reflects intricate genres such as early 60’s Blues and Psychedelia with a contemporary Pop twist. There also seems to always sprinkle a touch of feminism here and there, which helps showcase her gritty vocals and unique style.
Lauren Ruth Ward’s song, “Did I Offend You”, is about confronting her deepest emotions. This song puts Lauren in a very vulnerable place as she comes to terms with how she’s “only getting older”, time to fully accept herself, and being in touch with your sanity as much as your insanity. The production was crafted appropriately to showcase Lauren’s broad range of emotions through distorted bluesy guitar licks and wailing vocals.

The band members include: Dwayne Seagraves (singer/songwriter), Jessica Latiolait (bassist), Rob Campanella (guitarist), Andy Campanella (drummer and backing vocalist), and Misha Bullock (guitarist). Since the band came together in 2006, they have altered the structure of music by incorporating folk, soul, and 60s psychedelic hints into their sound. The main focus of the band has always been to shape music in a way that debunks and idealizes the human experience. Through music, the band wishes to convey that humans have been the main source of all of the greatest achievements and observations in history. This is a power that arises from within individuals, and rather than from the government, gods, or other outside sources. The group is set to release a new album this summer entitled Amerikana, and they are giving music fans a sneak peak at the album’s lead single, “Holy Life.” The song brings a high sense of energy with the strong and powerful vocals.
