Strong as an ocean wave. Vulnerable as a rose petal. Lauren Flaherty’s Voice and Songwriting offer listeners comfort and catharsis set to an infectious Rock beat. Years before earning a Berklee College of Music Scholarship, Lauren fell in love with Rock music young, learning guitar at thirteen.

Within just twenty-four hours of striking her first power chord, she began writing songs. Now, after hundreds of original songs, several awards, and countless gigs, she has released her debut Album, 'What Makes Angel'. The powerful Rock CD features all original music, ranging from Industrial Anthems to intimate piano ballads, and even offers a live performance at Cambridge's historic Folk venue, Club Passim. Tracks such as 'Across The Sea' and 'Angel' are winning spaces on Internet Radio charts, local compilations, and most importantly, homes in new fans' hearts.

Performing frequently in Boston and New York, Flaherty continues to hone her craft, playing passionate concerts everywhere from Cambridge's Club Passim to New York's CBGBs. 'I want to make my audience feel everything I'm feeling,' Flaherty says, 'all of the joy, love and outrage. To create real art, and of course to rock out!'

Lauren Flaherty is passionate about her music. Chances are you will be too.

Press Highlights:

'A Powerful Singer'- South Boston Online

'Rock and roll vixen Lauren Flaherty exudes a sassy confidence on her new 10 song album 'What Makes An Angel'. She's more reminiscent of Pat Benatar than Sheryl Crow as she rocks loud and proud. She's equally capable of getting low and sultry too, making her a versatile tour de force.' -Metronome Magazine

'Angel On High: Boston Native Lauren Flaherty is influenced by a range of female musicians, from Rock divas such as Shirley Manson and Hole's Courtney Love to melodic piano peddlers such as Tori Amos.
