Lauren Reno is an American country music artist, songwriter and musician of Cherokee Indian descent. Born in rural Nevada, and the daughter of a gold miner, Lauren’s musical palate was cultivated by the sounds of Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Martina McBride and that of her father, Eddie Dimock, who was signed with Capitol Records in the early 90s. Earning a paycheck, Lauren worked long shifts at the local gold mine; as her creative respite and muse, she wrote songs and performed at local wineries and honky tonks cultivating her craft and satisfying her creative passion.
Characterized by her big, powerhouse vocals, old soul storytelling and contemporary delivery, critics have described her music as a “blend of outlaw country and Americana-Folk roots.”
She released her debut EP, titled SEASONS (under her maiden name Lauren Dimock), in 2015. Produced by Adam Palmer, the acoustic recording project was featured on various playlists.
She met her husband, Ben Reno (a musician, composer and producer), in 2017; she, Ben and their two young children now call Music City “home.” Lauren and Ben are co-owners of Nashville’s hit-making recording facility, Majestic Ape Studios.
Lauren has spent the past decade writing and tracking songs. She released a series of singles including “Don’t Think” and “Crooked Smile” in April and June, 2022; she continues her momentum with the release of “Bottle’s Worth A Dime” as an introduction to her full-length recording project (GOLD RUSH) due September 23, 2022. The 11-song CD was produced by Ben Reno and recorded in Nashville at Majestic Ape Studio and Pentaverit Studios.
