Lauren Briant Named March “Best Vocalist Of The Month” With Her Song “Sometimes”
By Dale Kawashima

Lauren Briant, a promising singer & songwriter based in Los Angeles, CA, has won the March SingerUniverse “Best Vocalist Of The Month” Competition, for her performance of her song “Sometimes” (which was co-written by Raab Stevenson and Veit Renn). This is one of 10 cuts included on her debut CD Lauren Briant, which she released independently last month (Feb. 2006).


Lauren Briant
“Sometimes” is an elegant, pop/R&B/AC ballad, which stylistically is a cross between the ballad styles of Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. The recording provides an excellent showcase for Briant’s clear, soulful vocals, and demonstrates her strong vocal range during the choruses. “Sometimes” is skillfully produced by Raab Stevenson and Veit Renn (who is known for his writing/producing work with *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys).

Briant grew up in Dallas, TX, where she began singing at a very young age. She took vocal and piano lessons early on, and when she was 12, she began performing in local, musical theatre shows. Then during high school, Briant performed in productions of The King And I and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

In the summer of 2003 (following high school), Briant moved to Los Angeles to further her music and acting career. “I’ve always wanted to do everything I could as a performer, and I knew moving to L.A. would provide me with more opportunities,” explained Briant. Her vocal coach from Dallas, Tom McKinney (whose clients include Mario and Ray J.), had referred her to the L.A.-based agency, Meridian Artists, which has helped her land many gigs. In L.A., Briant has performed in the musical Ernest In Love, and also in a production of Sleeping Beauty.

It was in 2005 that she made another key connection, when she was introduced to writer/producers Stevenson and Renn. “I went to Orlando to write and record with Raab and Veit in April 2005,” said Briant. “We first got together and wrote five songs, including ‘Sometimes.’ Then Raab and Veit Renn produced ‘Sometimes.’ And last December (2005) I wrote another five songs with Raab for my CD.”

Now with the release of her CD, Briant is starting to attract attention from major labels. She has been working with an independent A&R rep, who has generated label interest. Briant is planning an artist showcase in Atlanta in the coming months. In addition, she is continuing to pursue work as an actress and musical theater performer. “I’m doing everything I can to promote my CD, and to create the best opportunities in all aspects of my career. A lot of things are happening - it’s an exciting time.”

Lauren Briant
Lauren Briant is currently touring the U.S. with country artist Colt Ford! The former pop inspired artist is now back to her roots. Lauren is a native of Dallas, TX – a city girl with country influence. She knew as a very young child she wanted to be a recording artist. She then went into theatre where she had her first experiences of being on a stage. That was all it took to let this artist know she wanted to be a performer. It was only natural she recently felt inspired to record her first set of country tunes. Lauren’s single “Butterfly Tattoo” is currently being played on radio across the South East and soon across the nation.

Many of her fans have even been inspired to get butterfly tattoos based on her song! Lauren has been touring with Colt Ford, but is gearing up for a headlining tour this fall. Look for tour dates in Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, Alabama and the Carolina’s!

Lauren has been asked to be the spokesperson for Próis Hunter Apparel for women. Lauren will also be in an episode of “Hunting The World, Southern Style” on the outdoor channel this fall. This artist is definitely on the rise, so don’t miss out!

Próis Announces New Spokesperson: Country Music Sensation Lauren Briant


The industry experts at Próis® Hunting Apparel, creators of innovative, high-performance women's hunting clothing, take pride in not being "one of the guys." Their fearless, out-of-the-box thinking has resulted in amazing designs for serious hunters that have taken the industry by storm and raised the bar for women's outdoor apparel.

That's why it's no surprise that Próis has joined forces with another fearless, high performance woman in the industry - country music rising star Lauren Briant, who has signed on as the company's official spokesperson. Briant has made a strong impression on country music fans and at radio with her recent smash hit "Butterfly Tattoo," and she is making a permanent mark with new fans all over the nation on her current tour with superstar Colt Ford. The Texas beauty can also be seen on recent episodes of Huntin' The World Southern Style on The Outdoor Network.

"I'm so excited that there are hunting clothes out there for the real woman. Próis Women's Hunting Apparel not only looks great, but also fits like a glove," says Briant. "I can hang with the boys and still feel like girl - while being comfortable at the same time!"

Próis was created for women, by women who were tired of settling for downsized men's gear or upsized children's gear, and each garment is strategically created to be the ultimate tool in the field for hunting enthusiasts. The clothing is made of technologically advanced fabrics and a host of features to provide comfort, silence and durability.

Soon Próis fans will be able to click on a link on the company's site to download Briant's single "Butterfly Tattoo," and there will even be special ringtones from the talented singer available exclusively through the site, as well. Plus, fans will be able to link straight to Próis' site from Briant's web pages, and should keep their eyes peeled for Lauren appearing in the renowned apparel line in the coming months.

You Gotta Know Artist of the Year
Who is it gonna be?

This was one of the hotly contested categories on the Musiqwards but what turned into a blowout for one ended up into a shootout to who owns bragging rights to Dallas, TX for a year.

The 2005 You Gotta Know of the Year is a recent winner of You Gotta Know, Lauren Briant. She hopes that one day she will rise to the top of the crop of talent to come out of Dallas. She already is making waves on Musiqtone, nabbing the number one and two songs on the Digital 40 and joins Britney Christian as the only two ever to chart three top ten songs at the same time. In 2006, she expects bigger and better things...and a call to Broadway.
