Lauren Harris - The Calm Before the Storm

Lauren Harris has gone from been 'spotted' to her debut album in about a year and the steady build up of experience that many artists would gain from starting at the 'bottom' has been denied her, but Lauren has got an advantage over many young artists in that been the daughter of legendary bass man Steve Harris of Maiden fame, she has grown up absorbing the atmosphere and moves needed to perform at the top. Been launched out onto the stadium circuit has clearly not fazed her and in fact has probably inspired the style of music that she is currently co-writing.

Lauren on occasion sound's like the finished article but on other songs she is clearly struggling to hit what the song is demanding from her, and this is where a couple of years hard graft around the small clubs would have trained her voice for, but it will surly come. On the songs that are right for her voice at the moment she blasts away with aplomb and they do sound pretty decent, songs like 'Steal Your Fire', 'Get Over It' and the power/pop Ballard 'Hurry Up' . Musically the band play rock with hairy guitar bollocks protruding everywhere and with riffs designed to fill a stadium while the melodies are reserved for the nice solo's that bowl you over, this seems to suit what Lauren and the band is currently doing and is going down a storm in the US and the huge stadiums that the band are performing in.

If Lauren can find the knack of imparting a live feel into her vocals when in the studio and if the band can inject more melodies into the overall sound they will go a long way to been a more balanced sound. The album has a nice round dozen supercharged songs that are out to entertain with noisy stadium rock/metal and the album does that.
