From Indianapolis to LA, Lauren Sanderson's star is on the rise

Multi-genre-spanning pop artist Lauren Sanderson has unleashed her new summer anthem “Girl From The Internet.” The independent artist has built a cult following thanks to her relentless DIY work ethic, go-getter attitude and electric persona. MTV, Billboard, Zane Lowe’s Beats 1, Alternative Press and Spotify’s New Music Friday have all signed on in support of the charismatic queer artist who has been putting her songs on Soundcloud and even did a TED Talk at the age of 19.

About “Girl From The Internet," Lauren says: "I was falling and we hadn’t even met yet. That’s when you know you’re fucked. S/o to all the long distance couples who are falling for strangers and s/o to the internet."

While her acclaimed 2020 debut full-length, Midwest Kids Can Make It Big, was brimming with wide-eyed wonder, the LA-via-Indiana singer/songwriter is kicking her way into this new era of her career including today’s release and recent captivating singles “QUEEN BEE” and “Hi.”

“I want people to hear these songs, watch these videos and think - I can be that. I can get tattoos, I can embrace my sexuality, I can say what I truly feel and be whoever I want to be,” Lauren says about these new songs.

“I see myself as a channel,” Sanderson declares. “When people feel my energy, or hear my lyrics, I want them to feel empowered and use that inspiration to create the life they want to live. To see someone who came from self-belief and know they can do the exact same for themselves. That’s all I really want.”

Lauren will be joining pop superstar MAX, who recently signed to Warner Records, on the East Coast dates of “The Live in Colour Tour” after heading out for a run of intimate shows across the mid-west through Sofar Sounds.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
