Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 24, 2007
Independent singer-songwriter Lauren Adams will host a pre-release party for her latest CD "Secret Heart". The no cover event will be on October 13, 2007 at Molly Malone's Pub in Los Angeles, running from 7:30-9:00PM PST. As the long running producer and host of the Americana Music Circle at Kulak's Woodshed, Lauren has been a vital part of the L.A. music scene, and chose to release her latest album in her hometown before it will be distributed worldwide. She chose to hold this special party in honor of the loyal fans who pre-ordered "Secret Heart" to help finance production and manufacturing costs. Adams has found the generosity and unwavering support of her fans staggering, and wants to express her heartfelt gratitude at this celebration.
"Secret Heart" is already garnering much attention from the media. With the stellar musicianship on this Americana/roots rock CD, it's no secret as to why. Produced by guitar veteran Nick Newell Kirgo, the album is a virtual who's who of L.A. music industry. Kirgo and Adams provide extraordinary guitar work along with the likes of David Sutton (Lucinda Williams, Tracy Chapman) laying down bass, Gary Mallaber (Steve Miller Band, Eddie Money, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen) manning the drums, John "JT" Thomas (Bruce Hornsby) rounding things out on keyboards, and Jesse Valenzuela (Gin Blossoms) smokin' on harmonica.
"You'll find her exploring the well-worn American inland where folk, blues and gospel predominate . . . a husky voice admits to disappointment, but tough guitar strokes and bright piano convey the strength to survive." -Sean Piccoli, Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
Lauren Adams just received two honorable mentions at this year's International Songwriting Competition for both "Thirsty" and "Secret Heart". "Thirsty" was also recently featured in the Lion's Gate movie, "Peaceful Warrior", starring Nick Nolte. The "Secret Heart" track was written exclusively for an improvised film in the works, "The Canvas". Adams is actively involved in raising money for local charitable organizations including, Children of the Night (rescues runaway teens in Hollywood) and Hep C Aware (Hepatitis C awareness group), as well as benefits for fellow musicians in need of health care.
On October 6th, tune in at 8:00AM PST to hear Lauren on KCSN-88.5FM in L.A. during Larry Wine's "Tied to the Tracks" radio show. The show will also stream live on their website at: http://www.kcsn.org
Her U.S. & European tours are scheduled for early 2008 to coincide with the official release of the new album, "Secret Heart". For more reviews, tour dates and music clips, log onto Lauren's website or MySpace page.
