Swooning over the LA singer songwriter Lauren Turk and her song “Love Left Over”. The track is a french house esque, electro pop song. Lauren’s voice has a classy retro feel and in “Love Left Over” her smooth vocals are set against electro-pop. It is like old school and new school coolly collide on this track. Lauren speaks to the heart broken in the single with a message to leave room for love, hope, and that she has love to share even when all feels lost. Lauren and “Love Left Over” are reminiscent of the 90’s trip-hop group Olive. Olive’s lead singer Ruth-Ann Boyle has a similar smooth creamy voice. Olive’s songs have been widely used in remixes and I can see the same happening for Lauren Turk. Lauren sets herself apart with a badass surprise towards the end of the song. She busts out rapping in French. Yes, she breaks it down in French and its pretty cool.
This chick is as smart and sassy as her music. Not only is Lauren a musician but also a political scientist and activist. According to her website: “Lauren is a singer-songwriter, creative consultant, and project manager with a masters in political science and two bachelors in communications and business. Her work has been published by Forbes, Fast Company, GOOD and Life Hacker. She is a two time TEDx speaker, a guest teacher at the Art Center College of Design & an advisor to the LA Clean Tech Incubator.” Check out this multi-talented songstress. Smart, sassy, and bad assy.
