Lauren grew up playing and composing classical piano music. Performing and composing always came quite naturally to her. At 16, she founded what was to be her first passion project: an all girl power pop band called ROCKET. At 18, Rocket signed their first record deal with Silverlake’s garage indie label “Teenacide Records.” With three releases under their belt over an eight year stint, the band completed five American tours (including Van’s Warped Tour), various television appearances and commercials, as well as being a top ten finalist on Fox’s “America’s Top Band” in 2008.
Lauren's most recent project was Atlantic Record’s “Night Terrors of 1927” A synth-pop harmony driven indie pop band alongside Rilo Kiley’s Blake Sennet and The Honorary Title’s Jarrod Gorbel. She has worked with Grammy-nominated producer Tom Holkenburg (aka Junkie XL) as a featured vocalist on his release, “Booming Back to You.” Two of her songs went to number one on the European Dance Charts, and peaked at #11 on Billboard’s Top Electronic Album chart. She’s also collaborated with songwriters Jeff Silbar, Matt Squire, Michael Fitzpatrick, Beau Dozier, Don Was, and Thirty Seconds To Mars. She’s toured with a variety of acts, including Fitz and the Tantrums, The Colorist, Butch Walker, Van’s Warped tour and The Horrorpops. She’s played at numerous music festivals including Coachella, Bunberry, SXSW, Life is Beautiful, CMJ, Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands.
Josephine Clarke, born fantasist, began her steps in the entertainment industry early on; which led to her acceptance into the Prestigious Alabama School of Fine Arts as a Vocal Performance Student. During her high school experience, Josephine discovered a new-found love for classical and opera music which led to her performing for The ARCHBISHOP OF CAPE TOWN, Desmond Tutu, and Grammy Award-Winning Cellist, Yo-Yo Ma. She was also granted the opportunity to perform with the Award-Winning cast of the Hit Broadway Musical CATS.
Upon high school graduation, Clarke was given a Vocal Performance scholarship to "The University of Alabama" where she shared stages with the likes of Micah Stampley, Kim Burrell, L. Spenser Smith, Sherri Pepsi-Riley, and Blanche McAllister. Clarke, known for ambition and idealist reasoning, graduated from college only to pack up her life and took a relocating road trip from Alabama to California where she quickly gained international attention from a leaked record by Recording Artist Nicki Minaj entitled "Top if The World" where she is featured on the Chorus! The YouTube-crazed song went on to gain close to 300 million views by early 2012!
He loosely categorizes his music as “hip-hop with an indie rock sensibility” — meaning that he uses live instruments and records his vocals within a few takes to capture raw, genuine emotion. Memento avoids the use of studio trickery in order to achieve authenticity, and always believes that less is more.
He approaches his music with the mindset of a composer: he wants the instruments to say what the words are saying, without the words. In order to do this, he pays great attention to detail while crafting his melodies and rhythms. Once the instrumental can express the emotion on its own, Memento paints a picture through his stories, his emotions, and his observations, all while maintaining a brutal honesty.
