"Review of In Your Doorway"

Vocals are first up as not only the appetizer but the main course on “In Your Doorway”. The album blends pop, adult contemporary,
and rock-n-roll in an effortless attempt to capture that WB style
audience. She succeeds because her songs sound very genuine and not some pop factory contrived nonsense that gets pushed down our throats by the music industry’s biggest [...]... There’s a sense of innocence and a yearning for exploration on several of the tracks that perhaps is due to her
stint at an all-girls Catholic school. Produced by Brian Irwin, “In
Your Doorway” is a nice complementary pop album for a rising pop star that would blow the socks off of those three idiots on that “American Idol” television show.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Serena Lauren, classically trained on the piano and self-taught on the guitar, started writing music in her late teens and released several albums including The Waking Up EP (2003) and In Your Doorway (2007). After receiving a production deal to record The Waking Up EP by Fat Cat Recording in Sacramento, CA, Serena's single "Unlaunched Star" earned her the opportunity to have a music video produced by Mark Austin at USC's School of Cinematic Arts. Serena continued writing songs and performing shows until her graduation from Stanford University upon which she chose to move to Hollywood to try out the music industry firsthand.

Serena connected with producer Brian Irwin (Astra Heights, Ty Stone) and recorded In Your Doorway in late 2005. Shortly after, the singer/songwriter relocated to her hometown due to personal circumstances and put music on hold for several years. In 2008, Serena joined the band A Year Remains as the lead singer/songwriter for several months and opened up as a solo artist for the Australian indie-rock band The Red Paintings.

In Spring 2011, Serena and her husband converted to Eastern Orthodox Christianity. She is currently a stay-at-mom, no longer pursuing a musical career, though she still writes songs from time and time and hopes to share them in some venue at some point.
