"Rachael Sage, CEO of MPress Records"

"Lauren O'Brien, is fierce, fearless and a force to be reckoned with! Her stage presence and rock 'n roll theatrics are, alone, worth the price of admission; in the spirit of artists like Patti Smith and Blondie, she is always surprising her audience - whether it be with her outrageous banter, liberated physicality, or the sheer chutzpah she has, as a lyricist, writing about what pisses her off or conversely, inspires her to enviable, euphoric heights. Lauren O'Brien is endlessly promising as a poet and performer, but most importantly, she's taking all the right risks, right now.” -

"Tym Moss, ArtistsExposed"

"…OMG… I have 3 words for her… A-MA-ZING!! So real. So raw!! … the passion, emotion, heart, the band!... We screamed!! Love her!!” -

"Vincent Nebrida, VP of Unico Entertainment"

"Electrifying! My gut tells me, very soon, Lauren won't be a well-kept secret any longer." -

"David Bennett Cohen, Country Joe and the Fish"

"Lauren O'Brien is spellbinding!" -

"Jackie Sheeler, Talk Engine"

“BELIEVE THE HYPE! every word of it, and more, is true. I haven’t seen a stage presence like Lauren’s in a very long time. Killer writing, kickass delivery, and edgy music that just keeps it all move move moving.” -

"George Wallace, poet laureate"

"...on stage, Lauren O'Brien's got that hot amalgamation thing going on -- a ripped up angularity of poetry, music and visuals that shakes seduces shocks and satisfies. Listening to her recorded music, it looks to me like she can turn the electronic audio screws with the best of them. This is one incredible powerful vibe -- a top act on the NYC underground poetry-performance scene. If you want to feel the big magma flow, you have GOT to get with this new CD of hers!" -


Still working on that hot first release.



The darling of all badasses, Lauren O’Brien is punk cabaret – with dashes of poetry and spices of comedy - for the new millennium!  She is “fierce, fearless, and a force to be reckoned with,” according to MPress international recording artist Rachael Sage.  Lauren is constantly evolving. starting out as an actress, becoming a lyricist for the rock band PAO (featuring Janice Robinson and Emmy winner Fred Shehadi), fronting a band in the vein of Patti Smith, then writing and performing acoustic rock.  Lauren has played festivals such as NYC’s CMJ, Howl! Fest, MEANY Fest, The Seaside Music Festival, The NY Funny Songs Festival, and The Joys of Hemp Festival, as well as toured throughout the United States and Canada.  Her first two studio albums,*Inconsequential Dream* & *Panic*, earned her two New Century Music Awards.  Lauren got together with Mitch Distefano to create *The Devil’s Girlfriend*.  Some say this album sounds like a love affair between Amanda Palmer and The Pixies.  Others hear Lene Lovich flirting with Charlie Chaplin.  Lauren is an ethical vegetarian and a hardcore Buddhist... and that sometimes finds its way into her songs.  "Lauren O’Brien takes her fans from the spoken word onto a circus ride through never never land, then kicks their rocknroll ass all over town before she heals them with love's cascade. If you hang out with her after the show, who knows where you’ll end up….” - David Tanner, RockNRoll Scene
