From the southern roots of Georgia comes Lauren St. Jane with her own combination of country swagger and Americana rock. This fiery, female-fronted band offers a raw sound complimented by strong, alluring vocals, ripping licks, and lyrics you'd expect from a true redhead.

The EP "American Dreams" debuted in 2011 and three months later Lauren was playing for CNN at SXSW. "American Dreams" has been the catalyst that led her to share the stage in 2013-14 with Alabama, Diamond Rio, Craig Morgan, NEEDTOBREATHE, Shawn Mullins, and Chuck Cannon as well as performing at Turner Field's Atlanta Brave's Stadium.

Heart-wrenching inspiration, prolific writing and a dire dedication to the craft of country combine to ignite the blaze behind the EP and the live show. In both song and sound, Lauren St. Jane is a collective drink that goes down smooth but leaves a beckoning burn for more - a classic country shot with a modern Americana aftertaste.

‘Running Around’, Lauren’s newest single co-written with Angie Aparo released October 6, 14’ and is now available exclusively on iTunes. Most recently, Lauren has made Georgia Music History by partnering with Loudfund, see more here on how you can partner with her on her next album www.loudfund.com/laurenstjane. 

 

 

Opening Act: 
Jameson Elder

Where Beauty Remains marks a new chapter for Jameson Elder, a native of Atlanta, Georgia. Jameson began his musical endeavor early in life, when he was classically trained on piano before progressing to the guitar at age 12. In high school his guitar teacher let him borrow Tom Petty’s Greatest Hits album; “It just made sense to me. Everything on that record was instinctual. Nothing was forced, nothing was showy.” The influence of the album is evident in Elder’s music, which lies somewhere between a modern-day Tom Petty, stirred with the smooth hooks of Damien Rice.

In 2007, the Atlanta-bred musician packed his bags and headed to Nashville to embark on a road that many before him have traveled. After attending Belmont University, Elder was determined to find his own way and his own voice. Jameson set his sights on the productionand performance of his own music. After releasing his first EP and Kickstarter-funded album, The Home I’ve Never Known, in April 2012, he received high-praise which led to sharing the stage with the likes of Sixpence None The Richer, Phil Keaggy, and Matthew Mayfield. He was also selected to participate in the Eddie’s Attic Songwriter’s Shooutout. In the months to follow, Elder learned a lot about life and himself, leading him to head back into the studio to begin telling the story of Where Beauty Remains.

Where Beauty Remains tells the story of heartbreak and hardship. Through the songs, you see a relationship fall apart and the beauty that remains in the end. Each song plays out like a film in your head, specific to a familiar emotion. The album encompasses emotions on all levels, making it easy for people from all walks of life to feel a connection. The album, which draws from Elder’s southern rock roots, releases June 25 on iTunes.

“Jameson Elder taught me more about songwriting in thirty minutes than I’ve heard in a long time. He knows that there is no formula, that it can take forever or come together in a moment, and that sometimes you need a little bit more living to make it happen. Even with all this elusiveness, he still manages to consistently create songs that are heartfelt and genuine. They sound immediately familiar and yet are unmistakably original. ” -NY Minute Magazine
