Lauren Lapointe is a Tallahassee FL-based singer/songwriter who has been gaining recognition across the country for her soulful songs, unique voice, and strong live performances. Her third and newest CD "Superhero" was produced by Thomm Jutz (Nanci Griffith, Mary Gauthier) in Nashville and features twelve original Americana, rootsrock, pop, and old country songs supported by worldclass musicians.
“Superhero” debuted at #6 on the Cashbox Magazine/Roots Music Report’s Georgia Airplay chart and #16 on the Cashbox Magazine/Root’s Music Report’s Country/Americana Internet Airplay Top 50. It has since been played on over 100 stations in the U.S. and is receiving much international radioplay. Leicester Bangs in the UK described it as “an engaging combination of classic country, narrative songwriting, and plentiful hooks.” In November 2013 Lufthansa Airlines selected her song “The Ghost of Elvis” for their inflight program.
Lapointe continues to make a name for herself as a strong and versatile live performer and has played at many renowned listening rooms across the nation such as the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, the Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, the Jefferson Freedom Cafe in Ft. Worth TX, and Anderson Fair in Houston TX.
