Secret Heart -Feb. 4, 2008 Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE February 4, 2008 AWARD WINNING ARTIST, LAUREN ADAMS, INDEPENDENTLY RELEASES NEW AMERICANA/ROOTS ROCK CD “SECRET HEART” Los Angeles, CA: Award winning artist, Lauren Adams, independently releases her new Americana/Roots Rock CD, “Secret Heart”. On L.A.’s indie music scene, Lauren Adams has developed a reputation for giving her heart and soul to her writing: a fusion of rock, folk, country, and blues. Her sound is undeniably unique, but others have dubbed Lauren as “Lucinda Williams meets The Eagles”. Lauren’s latest album, “Secret Heart”, is her third, and is already garnering attention in the music industry. The title track “Secret Heart” just received Honorable Mention at the 2007 International Songwriting Competition. Laurie Joulie of Take Country Back magazine wrote, “Superb, intelligent, thought-provoking songs. Real songs for real people wrapped in melodies that promise to capture, inspire and pull the listener in again and again. Songwriters of Lauren Adams’ level are few and far between. ‘Secret Heart’ not only begs to be heard, it deserves it!” With the stellar writing and musicianship on the CD, it’s no secret as to why. Produced by guitar veteran Nicholas Newell Kirgo, the album is a virtual who’s who of the L.A. music scene. Kirgo and Adams provide extraordinary guitar work along with the likes of David Sutton (Lucinda Williams, Tracy Chapman) laying down bass, Gary Mallaber (Steve Miller Band, Eddie Money, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen), Lynn “Skins” Coulter manning the drums, John “JT” Thomas (Bruce Hornsby) rounding things out on keyboards, and Jessie Valenzuela (Gin Blossoms) on harmonica. As host/producer of the long running Americana Music Circle (at Kulak’s Woodshed), Lauren has shared the stage with some of the greatest talent from every corner of the globe. Her previous work, “Thirsty” was featured in the film, Peaceful Warrior (Lion’s Gate) starring Nick Nolte. Adams is also actively involved in raising money for various local charitable organizations, including Hep C Aware (Hepatitis C awareness group). Her 2008 U.S. & European tours are scheduled to coincide with the official release of “Secret Heart”. Lauren kicks off her world tour in Anchorage, Alaska at the end of February. Full tour dates and venues will be posted on her website. Lauren Adams’ CD, “Secret Heart” is available for purchase at CD Baby, iTunes, Yahoo Music, Best Buy, Rhapsody, MSN Music, DigStation, and select regional music stores.
