Born and raised in Orillia, Ontario, home to the famed Mariposa Folk Festival, Lauren Campbell was raised to the songs of Canadian folk legends. Lauren began to play and write her own music at a young age, drawing inspiration from artists Joel Plaskett, Sarah Harmer, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac. In pursuit of collaborators and devel- oping her craft of songwriting Lauren left Orillia in 2008 to attend the prestigious Music Industry Arts Program in London, Ontario. It was here that Lauren began to collaborate with another young songwriter, David “Tokyo” Speirs, forming “Lauren & Tokyo” shortly thereafter. During this time Lauren developed an interest in taking her songs from the studio to the stage.

Lauren began to sing alongside other acts to build her comfort with the challenges of live performance. With a growing comfort on stage, Lauren looked to more collaborators to bring her own unique sound to public ears. She began to work with James Fox, Pete Moss, and Adam Cannon (now known as the Dusty Figurines) writing new songs for a then, undefined project. In the winter of 2011 Lauren entered the studio with producer Moe Berg (Pursuit of Happiness, The Cliks) to begin work on a few songs Lauren had written. Under the influence of Moe’s punk sensibilities the band stepped outside of their humble folk past and into the exciting world of folk-rock.

Inspired by this direction, Lauren took a collection of old and new songs into the studio and, supported by the Dusty Figurines, recorded her debut S/T EP. The EP is a beautiful blend representation of Lauren’s growth in her abilities to write memorable and endearing songs. Lauren’s unique vocal delivery and pop sensibility is a refreshing addition to the indie folk rock world and the “Lauren Campbell and the Dusty Figurines” EP is a delightful glimpse into the future of a talented, ambitious and inspired folk songstress.
