Background
Earlier this year I discovered English chanteuse Lauren Christy on an interesting blogsite. Though there were comparisons made to other singers such as Tori Amos, Sarah Brightman even, some of the songs of Lauren's 1993 debut will appeal greatly to AORsters. Not that her music lands in the AOR garden like a misguided soccer ball from the nextdoor neighbour. No, her songs float down upon high like little butterflies looking for a safe place to land. And that they do. A budding singer/songwriter, Mercury Records took it upon themselves to launch Lauren's promising career, but despite the wealth of excellent songs on this CD, the shelf life, just like the aforementioned butterflies, only lasted for a fleeting moment. The CD never really took off, which was a shame. By 1997, Lauren was reinvented (probably by her label, not herself), her second album 'Breed' was nothing like the lush playground of the debut, it seemed the record label were trying to push her toward a Alanis Morrisette, Sheryl Crow or Meredith Brooks direction. The move was another failure. These days Lauren continues to songwrite, but for others it would seem - within a team environment called 'The Matrix', a song writing production house who have been behind the early efforts of Katy Perry but more importantly Avril Lavigne. Take a punt on this album, there are some lovely tunes here.

Lauren's single 'You Read Me Wrong' was co-written by Ali Thomson, who is featured as a solo artist here at GD. 'Rain' is a Lennon/McCartney tune. The album was produced by Tony Peluso, who just this week passed away. R.I.P Tony.
