With less than 4 months until FarmJam, the lineup is home to up and comer Lauren Jenkins. The Texas born, Carolina-raised singer-songwriter chose a life that would fit perfectly in the songs she writes: across countless smoky bars, fake IDs, and endless miles on the road, music has been her one constant companion. As a young teenager, she started hitting the clubs up and down the East Coast, playing each night trying to reach just one new fan.
By 17, she was making regular trips to New York City, and she soon moved there full-time to study acting. Yet music was never an afterthought – it was the goal. Jenkins used her time in NYC to showcase her new music at legendary New York clubs like the Bitter End and the Living Room — anywhere that gave her a mic and a chance to sing.
Lauren Jenkins has been a touring artist since she was 15 years old and is with Big Machine (home to Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, and Carly Pearce).
Lauren’s Rise to Stardom
Named an Artist to Watch by the New York Times, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Pandora, and many more, she was also chosen as a member of the “Class of 2019” by influential radio DJ Bobby Bones, and made her TODAY Show debut as Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month in February. Lauren recently completed writing, co-producing, and starring in an original short film titled Running Out of Road that accompanied the release of her debut album, NO SAINT, available now.
When some of her songs made their way into the hands of Scott Borchetta and his Big Machine Label Group, it only took a call, a flight, and one dinner for him to offer her a record deal. Her first EP, The Nashville Sessions, was released in 2016; Popdust deemed it one of their best EPs of the year, and Rolling Stone named her one of their New Artists to Watch.
