London-based Lauren Auder is a British-French singer-songwriter, record producer and composer who’s baroquely orchestrated pop songs implore a Classical lens to contemporary themes of Gen Z discontent. Fusing the classical with the post-rock and popular song structure, Auder paints vivid musical portraits situated in a novel medium between Lorde and Woodkid. She is a go-to for sync writing for fashion brands such as Louis Vuitton, Celine, and Marni, and has collaborated with such artists as Celeste, HAIM, Boris, and Slowthai.
Auder was born in Watford, near London, where she lived until the age of seven when she moved with her music journalist parents to Albi, France to avoid the “hectic and expensive lifestyle” of London. At the time of their migration, her mother worked at NME, while her father worked at Kerrang! In 2015, Auder began working with artists in the London underground hip hop scene such as Lord Pusswhip, Jeshi and Slowthai, while also self-publishing content onto SoundCloud. After graduating from high school in September 2016, she returned to London shortly after signing to independent record label True Panther Sounds.
