Singer-songwriter releases her first studio recorded EP
Living Image have taken great pleasure in working up the latest offerings from Lauren Castle, all of which feature on her recent release entitled ‘Vintage Dress’. Lauren is a fantastic talent and as well as her unique vocal ability, her evocative and imagery rich songwriting style belies one so tender in years.
Due to popular demand, Lauren’s EP is the first step in developing further her musical career. Lauren has been working with Living Image Music to produce an EP that reflects her enthusiastic and friendly stage presence, as well as her ability to craft an intimate, creative performance. The EP includes four tracks, featuring the eponymous title track ‘Vintage Dress’. Additionally, the disc includes original songs ‘Green Coloured Coat’ and ‘Free House, as well as her unique version of David Grey’s ‘Babylon’, all of which proven to be very popular in reviews and on YouTube.
To produce and deliver a set of primarily self-penned songs with such assurance is remarkable enough – to do it at 16 is absolutely outstanding. ‘Green Coloured Coat’ is gem of a track, mature and wistful, with a beautiful melody and varied time signatures, definitively complementing Castle’s delicate but pitch-perfect voice. She needs to get this one in the can right now and resist the temptation to alter it by one note. Huge song and a very fine performance.”
