Here is a transcript for the artist’s story:

J. Lauryn’s career first began when she moved from Hawaii to LA in 2007 to be a

professional dancer and choreographer. One of her most memorable moments was

dancing alongside Queen Latifah at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards, however it

wasn’t long before she wanted to step out from the shadows, steal the microphone

and take over the show. “I always had a strong passion for music and writing since I

was a kid,” J. says. “It was only a matter of time before I realized I needed to follow

my heart and focus on music”.

As well as starting to create on her own music J. has honed her phenomenal talents

by working on forthcoming tracks by RnB singer Ashanti, Roc Nation’s Vic Mensa and

K-pop superstar, CL. J reveals, “Vic would call me up to the studio and just say “go in

the booth and do your thang. CL was really fun to write with, we wrote a few really

vibey songs”. Last year she also provided guest vocals on fellow Cali band The

Johnsons’ reggae tinged track. ‘Kick It’.

Whether J’s working hard in the studio, chilling out with her dog Samson Dubie or

filming freestyles for her Instagram armed only with a ukulele her ambition remains

the same: “spread good vibes, good messages, and positivity”.

The crew of this session was quite small: only the photographer, the talent and her pup Samson. The PHOTOGRAPHER for the shoot was Connor Johnson. Check more of his work via INSTAGRAM. And the MODEL/ARTIST, J. Lauryn can be reached through various media platforms, such as INSTAGRAM, YOUTUBE, FACEBOOK and TWITTER.

Featuring all black walls and ceiling, with capabilities to completely shut off the natural window light this space has become a favorite of our clients for both photo and video projects.
