One of my best friends and favourite people, Richard – Richard Marc – has released a new EP! It’s very cool and I feel very honoured have written on three of the four songs: ‘Knockout Blow,’ ‘Holding On,’ and ‘Chasing Shadows’ (which was actually used in a Japanese documentary recently!) – I’m so excited for everyone to finally hear them. I also love the fourth song (just as much – maybe even more), ‘Deep End,’ which was written by Richard and another of my good friends, Simon Stirling.
You can listen to the EP on Spotify now! And I’d love to hear what you guys think!

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…

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.
