Originally from Gaylord, Michigan, musician Lauren Duski, has been performing since she was seven years old. Those performances were mostly in her hometown, and during her travels across Northern Michigan with a band, performing classic country hits. She also had the privilege of opening shows for some iconic and classic performers like Bill Anderson, Randy Travis, Confederate Railroad and Lonestar.
Her songwriting began during middle school, after which she received her first guitar. She started putting up videos of her original songs and covers on her YouTube channel, garnering her some major views worldwide. While she was a student at University of Michigan, Duski focused more on her songwriting and performances from her peers passing through town. After graduating college, she spent a few months in Chicago, and after graduation looking to record her material, but she ended up in Nashville a bit early in 2014.
Duski was recently on the twelfth season of the hit NBC show, “The Voice,” receiving runner-up honors. With all of these experiences behind and ahead of her, Duski has recently released the music video accompanying her debut single “Costume Party,” which ca be viewed below:
Duski shares that “the letters from my fans really inspired me to say something this vulnerable in a song. People shared stories and vulnerability that I could’ve never imagined. So it only felt right to have them all join me in the video. ‘Costume Party’ is for them.”
“Costume Party” has received well over 120,000 streams on Spotify and debuted at #15 on the US Country Charts on iTunes. The track will be featured on her debut EP, soon to be released this year.
