Lauren Frawley is a 15 year old singer – songwriter from NJ. At the age of 5, Lauren developed a love of singing and knew that this is what she wanted to be when she grew up.
Now, as a high school student, she often spends her days in and out of the classroom thinking of one thing, music. She sings, writes songs, plays piano and is also learning to play guitar.
Lauren spends her days singing, writing songs, and sharing her music with others on social media, which includes SoundCloud and a YouTube channel.
Lauren is very talented with a drive, passion, and big future ahead of her.
