Born in Dallas, Texas and spending the first two years of her life without her hearing, Lauren Teel has quite a life story. She recalls being able to sing after her first myringotomy. It was only after her second one that Lauren was able to fully hear in both ears. According to multiple sources, including one of Lauren's old babysitters and countless family members, even as an 18-month-old, Lauren was able to sing in perfect pitch and in perfect time. Beginning piano lessons at the young age of 4 and later picking up the electric guitar at the age of 8 and acoustic guitar at age 10, Lauren has always been open to learning new instruments. She added ukulele to that list when she was 15 and is now taking banjo lessons at the age of 19. She recalls beginning her songwriting journey in the fourth grade during recess and boasts of writing song after song ever since. Spending a majority of her pre-teen and teen years in a suburb outside of Dallas after her parents' divorce, Lauren found comfort in writing her feelings into songs, and her old soul style of writing surely shows it.
