Lauren Suthers

We’re excited to feature Youth Advocate and pop teen artist, Lauren Suthers. Her music is written with the thought of giving others the courage to take a chance and reach for their dreams, to always have fun in what you are doing and never give up, whatever your passion may be!  Her Motto is “Anything is Possible.” We had the pleasure of sitting down with this spirited teen and learning more about what drives her and look forward to sharing this behind-the-scenes VIP access with you.

What are your top 3 favorite songs?  

Stiches, Shawn Mendez, Helplessly, Tatiana Manaois & Hold On We’re Going Home, ASTR

My Great-grandmothers from both sides of the family, My Mom’s mom, My Cousin Jaimie, & Uncle Frank

Do you have any hidden talents, hobbies or interests?

I am really good at touching my nose with my tongue and I love watching old shows from before I was born.

What is your favorite highlight/moment in your music career thus far?

I’ve been blessed this past year and am grateful for being personally invited to perform My original songs on the runway at LAFW and then in France at the Cannes Fashion Festival (during Cannes Film Festival) for Nancy Vuu Collection.  Going to France was a moment in time I will never forget! Also, Performing at Social Slam Selfie Awards or at the Susan G. Komen Run at Dodger Stadium in front of 15,000 ppl, and the moment I realized I wanted to be a singer.

What song best describes the soundtrack of your life? Something Big, by Shawn Mendes

What’s your favorite part of performing? Watching the crowd enjoy my music as much as I do.

You should forever Be Happy, and live the life You deserve. We are here for you and don’t care about what other people think.

What would you say to someone going through a rough time?

“Lift your head up Gorgeous, your tiara is falling” (not my quote, but I’ve always liked it).

If you had only 5 minutes to perform one song that could leave a great impact on the world today, what song would you perform and why?

Not Alone, my original song. I feel that my lyrics will touch others that have been abused or hurt, and these words would help cheer them up letting them know they’re not alone.

Just for fun … fill in the blanks!

Without music, I would be a depressed, little human.

Music is Me.

My hero is Mi Madre! 🙂

Life is unbelievably incredible!

How are you rocking your voice for good?

I am Rocking my voice for good by being a part of awesome anti-bully programs like Free2Luv and I AM THAT GIRL, turning self-doubt into self-love.  There is no better part in life then being there for another.  Spreading these two messages will change the world!

Farewell, My Love ~ Chad Kowal

We really enjoyed chatting with lead vocalist of Farewell, My Love, Chad Kowal whose big heart we are blessed to have in our movement.  Farewell, My Love embodies rockin’ individuality and we are happy to share their music and positivity with each of you.  We were really excited to catch up with the band who just returned from their U.K. tour where they played to sold out crowds.  Enjoy getting to know these awesome musicians!

What are your top 3 favorite songs?

Believer by Kill Hannah, Famous Last Words by My Chemical Romance & Mr Brightside by The Killers.

If you could travel into any musical time or place, where would you go and why?

If I could be apart of any time in music it would be right where we are now. I have the option of revisiting the past or enjoying the present & I really enjoy that.

If you could invite 5 people to dinner (present or past) who would they be?

Tim Burton, Nikki Sixx, Davey Havok, Eric Nally & The Rev.

Do you have any hidden talents, hobbies or interests?

I used to write comic books when I was younger, other than that I mostly just try to learn as many instruments as I can.

What is your favorite highlight/moment in your music career thus far?

Playing many sold out shows on our UK tour with AshesToAngels this past July was totally surreal to me, & I am truly grateful for the opportunity.

What song best describes the soundtrack of your life?

The beauty of music is that I can relate many songs to many different emotions that I am going through. I don’t know if I could pick just one song.

What’s your favorite part of performing? Connecting with our fans.

What’s your ‘go to’ shower song? Rubber Ducky by Burt & Ernie.

What message do you want to share through your music?

As cliche as it has become to say, I want to make people feel like they’re not alone in feeling the way they do. I want to be their light in the darkness.

What would you say to someone going through a rough time?

I would say that there is a positive to every negative & that everything happens for a reason.

If you had only 5 minutes to perform one song that could leave a great impact on the world today, what song would you perform and why?

Any of our new songs because I feel that the messages would help lift people up a lot.

Just for fun … fill in the blanks!

Without music, I would be nothing.

Music is everything to me.

My hero is Davey Havok.

Life is what you make it.

How are you rocking your voice for good?

I try my absolute best to convey a positive or helpful message in my bands music. My hope is that it creates a sort of domino effect & continues to help more & more people.
