Lauren O’Brien has been a lifelong artist and activist. She began writing poetry, performing and organizing marches for animal rights as a child. After studying acting at Syracuse University, she began her professional career on tours and in regional theatre, performing roles in To Kill A Mockingbird (Mayella), Angels in America (Harper), A Wrinkle in Time (Mrs. Whatsit) and The Odyssey (Athena), among other works. As an original member of director Polina Klimovitskaya’s avant-garde theatre troupe, Terra Incognita, Lauren credits Klimovitskaya’s “psycho-physical” method as influential in her evolution as an artist. 

After joining Marc Godwin and singer Janice Robinson in the band P.A.O. as its poet and lyricist, she assembled her own band and began playing New York clubs where she developed the material for her debut recording, Inconsequential Dream. She has since recorded an EP, Panic, as well as a punk-cabaret album, The Devil’s Girlfriend, which she expanded into a theatrical show, touring it throughout Germany. Lauren has toured extensively in the United States, Canada and Europe and has performed at NYC’s CMJ, Howl! Fest, and MEANY Fest, among others.
