Today, one of my best friends released her new single, ‘Helium Balloon,’ and while I’ve been excited for each of her releases, I’ve been especially excited about this one because I helped with the writing of the song. Luce is one of my favourite people and it’s always so special to work on music with people I have so much love and respect for. As well as being a great friend, Luce is a beautiful songwriter, a compelling performer, and just a wonderful human being; alongside and with her music, she advocates for survivors of sexual violence and raises awareness through her blog.
The song is also raising money for Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre…

Richard Marc, one of my best friends and closest collaborators, has now released three singles (two of which I helped write) and his new single, Nashville, comes out today! I helped write this song as well and I think it’s turned out super gorgeous. Please go and check it out! I hope you love it as much as I do!
Hi! I’m Lauren Alex Hooper. Welcome to my little blog! I write about living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), ADHD (Inattentive Type), and Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS), as well as several mental health issues.
I’m a singer-songwriter (it’s my biggest special interest and I have both a BA and MA in songwriting) so I’ll probably write a bit about that too.
My first single, ‘Invisible,’ is on all platforms, with all proceeds going to Young Minds.
My debut EP, Honest, is available on all platforms, with a limited physical run at Resident Music in Brighton.
I’m currently working on an album about my experiences as an autistic woman.
