Artist On the Rise: Lauriana Mae


Let’s just cut to the chase: music needs Lauriana Mae. Name doesn’t ring a bell? Well, it’s time for you to get acquainted. To put it simply, this girl can blow. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the video below of her performance at SOB’s earlier this week during SolVillage presented by Singersroom.

Newly signed to Atlantic Records, many liken the New Jersey native to the late Amy Winehouse and have compared her sound to Ella Fitzgerald, Ruth Brown, and Billie Holiday. She is creating her own lane in the industry, seamlessly blending classic jazz, R&B, and other styles with contemporary music. When she performs, you’ve got no choice but to move your body and sing along.

Lauriana Mae was a former contestant on P. Diddy’s “Starmaker” and while she didn’t make the cut, she definitely kept working hard at her craft with the support of her band, The Pains. Lauriana has definitely got the music scene a buzz and this writer, to say the least, is looking forward to more from this artist, including an album which is set to drop in the near future.
