'Untwist In Time' With The Captivating Lauren Ruth Ward
When we came across Lauren Ruth Ward on YouTube a couple of years ago, we knew straight away that she had something a little bit special. Possessing a languidly mature delivery that ebbed and flowed with a sultry nonchalance, her voice was an arresting mix of a raspy sensitivity and dreamy, lullaby-like phrasing that proved alluringly seductive in its soulful self-possession. Having had the chance to watch her absorb the crowd's attention at our Los Angeles showcase, we know just why she is in the process of making her mark: recently sharing a headlining bill with LP in L.A., she has also been gracing stages at prestigious venues on both coasts such as The Viper Room, The Mint and Rockwood Musical Hall. Here settling down with delicate piano accompaniment from Colamiles, she proves her intimately absorbing charisma as she showcases the husky tenderness and emotive authenticity of her distinctive voice with a captivating rendition of her song, 'Untwist In Time'.
