Episode 15: Love Heals Us with Lauren Monroe

Lauren Monroe is a gifted singer, songwriter, and mental health advocate who combines her powerful music and art to create a healing journey for communities in crisis.

Lauren and Rick Allen (Rock & Roll Hall of Fame drummer of Def Leppard and Lauren's husband) founded the Raven Drum Foundation. Its mission is to serve, educate, and empower Veterans dealing with PTSD, combat trauma, and other at-risk communities.

Lauren's music has been inspired by artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Linda Rondstadt, and Janis Joplin. And her music has been compared to those legendary women of rock and blues. Her sound and vocal quality - raw, sawdust-on-the-floor honestly - combined with her performance's emotional and spiritual power, draw audiences in and speak to us on so many levels.

Lauren says, “To me, music is a heart-based experience. Through music, I lead people to more deeply connect to themselves and others. It’s not just about listening. It’s about feeling and connecting.”

Lauren's new single, "If You Want," is available now. Her third album, Messages From Aphrodite, will be available in the fall.
