I am a violinist/fiddle player from Nashville, TN. I graduated in May 2014 from Belmont University with a degree in Commercial Music Performance. I have been playing live and in studio for the last 15 years in many styles from bluegrass to pop.
Lauren began playing violin at the age of 6. Although her training began classically, she grew up in Nashville TN, home of country music, and soon became immersed in the many Americana and roots styles the city had to offer. She started playing bluegrass in a local band at age 9 after she entered and won her first fiddle competition. She continued to compete, placing in many more competitions, including runner up in the ASTA Alternative Styles Competition in 2010. She continued to perform locally and studied jazz, Irish, bluegrass, and pop music throughout high school. She is a graduate of Belmont University where she studied Commercial Violin Performance. Lauren has over fifteen years of performance experience on several tours, including opening for acts such as Montgomery Gentry, Josh Thompson, and Kix Brooks. She has worked with artists and productions like Miley Cyrus, Lonestar, Florida Georgia Line, ABC’s Nashville, The CMT Awards, as the featured artist for Bonafonte’s international advertising campaign, and currently tours with 2015’s AGM Female Group of the Year, HighRoad.

Reviews of Lauren Conklin Violin/Fiddle
I needed a fiddle player for a country song. I contacted Lauren. She responded within a very short period of time, gave me a quote and a timeline. She send three different versions (before the deadline) to try out. I could have used all three! Sound and musicianship-excellent. I will want to work with her again. YOu will too!
Lauren was very easy to work with. She responded to my inquiry very quickly and we got started right away. She needed virtually zero directions and no revisions were needed. I look forward to working with her again in the future!
If you need BEAUTIFUL violins, then dont hesitate anymore, she is the right person for you
She really put her soul into YOUR project and delivers amazing Violins
Lauren's great! She gave me a few variations of the part for my song and delivered really quickly. Great tone and recording quality. I'll definitely use her again.
Lauren is a tremendously talented fiddle player that brought some Southern roots violin to some genre-bending songs I've been writing. She did not hesitate to provide revisions until I found the right blend for what I was aiming for. Can't wait to work with her again.
Lauren was fantastic again, giving our song exactly what it needed to grow further. She is such an excellent musician and I can't wait to work with her again!
This was an incredibly great experience. Lauren put her heart and soul into our project, and you can hear that in her playing- the passion exudes from the music!
Excellent job! Lauren is great at what she does! My go to for Violin / Fiddle!
Lauren is great at the violin and works very quickly. I can't wait to work with her again.
Lauren is an exceptional musician. She is extremely easy to work with, communicates well and completed our project quickly. She has a great sense in improvising and musicianship and turned our song into something awesome. I would not hesitate a second to hire her again for our next project! - Kelly
I don't know who's more gourgeus: she or the song we finished together. Her string section made the music realy shine. Very, very talented.
Working with Lauren Conklin is wonderfully simple and professional.
I am a producer / engineer with my own studio and Lauren is my first stop for violin or fiddle parts. I never have to worry with her - she plays exquisitely and also comes up with amazing ideas and arrangements. I highly recommend her.
