Lauren Conklin Violin/Fiddle on SoundBetter

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.

    Lauren did an amazing job with an overdub of a professionally produced track. No adjustments were needed as she provided what I asked for and complimentary takes of what she heard. I am going with a mix of the two because I really appreciated the dynamic nature of her ear and skill. I will definitely be utilizing her in the future for any other needs.

    Lauren did some really great fiddle playing (with video) for an acoustic cover of my song. I simply asked for a little fiddle jam to go with the existing guitar and vocals. What do I get in return? Three (3) takes from which to choose, that's what. Now I have a musical buffet from which to make an impossible choice. That was a very kind and unanticipated gesture. Always going the extra mile for your clients, Lauren. So appreciated! Thank you!

    In her usual, seemingly effortless and incredibly quick fashion, Lauren composed and recorded two perfectly love fiddle takes for a new Country song. The way she whips up and plays a fiddle part with zero input or guidance makes me think she was drinking music in her mama's milk as a baby. Music just seems to be in every one of her cells. Wow. Thank you, Lauren for another great piece.

    Lauren composed a wonderful violin piece to go with an original song, she created sheet music and filmed mentoring videos too. All of this was done quickly, with great care and awesome creativity. Can't go wrong working with Lauren! Thank you, Lauren.

    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 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.

    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.
