Biography

Lauren Elise Hildebrandt is a triple-threat singer/dancer/actress, based in Los Angeles. Affectionately known as “Hildy”, she is an independent recording artist who’s currently in the studio working with 2007 Grammy Award Winner, Devine Evans on her debut album.

Discovered on NBC’s talent show, FAME, with Debbie Allen and Joey Fatone, Hildebrandt impressed the judges and landed among the top 12 finalists out of over 5,000 people who sang and danced their way at auditions across the country. (Runner up Shannon Bex is a member of the platinum-selling girl group, Danity Kane and other finalists are currently on Broadway.)

Hildy burst on the dance music scene in 2005 with her single, Burnin Out that she co-wrote with producers Liquid 360. It spent 13 weeks on the Billboard Hot Club charts, peaking at #5, an impressive debut for a new artist. Her music video to Burnin Out was directed by Patricio Ginsela, who directed two of the Black Eyed Peas videos. It is still in rotation in clubs, stores and restaurants and video channels across the world. Burnin Out also was #3 on Canada’s bpm dance station (like MTV), #35 on the worldwide dance charts, #50 on the Hot Brazil charts and #10 on the Bollywood charts in 2005-2006.

In March, 2006, Hildy was nominated as “Best New Dance Artist” at the International Dance Music Awards in Miami. She was in a category with superstar recording artists, Rihanna and Cascada. She was also a presenter at the Awards Show along with Kelly Rowland and Depeche Mode.

Her second dance single, Dance With You, was released in August 2006 through Act2 Records. It spent 8 weeks on the Billboard charts, peaking at #20. Both singles have been released internationally on DJ compilations.

Her third dance single, "My Life Again", is currently #25 on the Billboard Hot Club Play Charts (w/e 2/16/08) and still climbing. It is currently being worked to radio.

She has performed as a solo artist from Hawaii to New York, and locally has sung the National Anthem at a Phoenix Suns game and performed with the Suns dancers. She has upcoming appearances at the Winter Music Conference in Miami.

From August 2006 through May 2007, Hildy toured in the European production of the long-running, hit musical, Grease. She was featured on German TV in the popular show, Soundgarden, and was one of four cast members chosen to appear in Vienna’s Night of 100 Stars.

Now back in the States, she is co-writing and recording her self-titled debut album. One song on the album will feature a duet with Chip Days, an American Idol Season 2 Semi-Finalist. She has also co-written and recorded a song in Phoenix, Feelin Your Style, with BMI and gold-selling recording artist CeCe Penniston and producer Rodney Jenkins.

She has been featured and/or mentioned in the Arizona Republic, YES Magazine, Dance Spirit Magazine, USA Today, the Scottsdale Republic, Item Magazine, AZ Teen and 101 Scottsdale.

Hildy has also appeared in supporting roles as a back-up dancer to Fergie in the Black Eyed Peas music video, Bebot, in Liquid 360’s music video, Shout and as a vocalist on Sharon Stone’s Hurricane Katrina charity single, Come Together.

Hildebrandt was born in Walnut Creek, California and spent most of her years in Scottsdale/Paradise Valley, Arizona, where she was involved in dance, cheer and musical theatre. She graduated from Chaparral High School and attended Arizona State University.

Lauren is a member of ASCAP.

My Life Again

Written By: Jack D. Elliot

MY LIFE AGAIN


GETTING CLOSER TO YOU LOST IN SIDE YOU BEAUTIFUL SURPRISE
BECAUSE I FOUND MYSELF I FOUND THAT LOVE AN MY DREAMS WERE STILL
ALIVE AND AWAKE AND STILL HOLDING ON FOR LIFE
IT’S LIKE I’M REBORN AND THE TEARS
THE TEARS NO LONGER FALL

I WILL NOT BE LONELY
I WILL NOT FEEL LOVELESS
NOT GONNA FADE TO BLACK AGAIN
I’M NOT OUT OF FIRE
YOU’VE TAKEN ME HIGHER

MY LIFE AGAIN, AGAIN


EVERYDAY WERE GROWING BUILDING CASTLES
RIEN AS KING AND QUEEN
INSIDE OF THIS MOMMENT LIVES THE BEAUTY THAT TOOK MANY YEARS TO
SEE THAT IS LIVING AND BREATHING THE AIR FEEL CLEAN
THE MADNESS THAT TOOK ME IS GONE
THE TEARS NO LONGER FALL

I WILL NOT BE LONELY
I WILL NOT FEEL LOVELESS
NOT GONNA FADE TO BLACK AGAIN
I’M NOT OUT OF FIRE
YOU’VE TAKEN ME HIGHER
YOU GIVEN BACK TO ME
MY LIFE AGAIN, AGAIN


MY HOPE MY DREAMS, MY JOY, MY JOY
MY PEACE OF MIND, RAY OF LIGHT
HAPPYNESS, EVERYTHING, SHELTER FROM
THE STRONGEST WIND, FLOWING DEEP IN LOVE AGAIN
LOVE AGAIN (REPEAT)

Burnin' Out

Written By: M. Williams, B. Donnally, J. Panwitz, L. Hildebrandt

I’m burnin out, I’m burnin out…

Look
Through a wall of broken glass
And this moment was our last
Opportunities have passed, too fast

Sleep
In a field that never grew
Seedless dreams we never knew
Things that never will come true, for you

You got me
Burnin out, we’ve burned out
By the life that we had to cast aside
You got me burnin out, we’ve thrown out
Golden wings that we never used to fly

Breaking down
Too tired to work it out
Melting down
All I can think about
Burnin out

Stained
By the memories of time
Undetermined by design
Finding thoughts you left behind, in mind

Change
Was the blessing in disguise
That we thoughtlessly despised
Now our words can’t be revised, with lies

Breaking down
Too tired to work it out
Melting down
All I can think about
Burnin out
