And the ‘Honest’ music video is officially out!
This video was so fun to put together and I always end up grinning when I watch it. Putting this EP together has been such a rollercoaster and so much of the process has gone unseen. There were ridiculously fun moments, incredibly stressful moments, beyond weird moments… It was one of the most unique periods of my life. So I really wanted to share that with you guys and it felt pretty fitting for not only the last song of the EP, but for a song called ‘Honest.’

Today I put up a new YouTube video, talking about the inspiration behind ‘Back To Life,’ writing with Scott Colcombe, and working on the production with Lauren Deakin Davies and then Richard Marc. This is the fourth song off my EP, Honest, and represents the upward turn after a difficult period of time and mental health.
If you haven’t listened to the song yet, you can find it here and I’ll be releasing the music video soon. I hope you like the song and I hope it’s been interesting to hear some of the behind the scenes of the writing process.

Hi! I’m Lauren Alex Hooper. Welcome to my little blog! I write about living with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as several mental health issues. I’m a singersongwriter (and currently studying for a Masters in songwriting) so I’ll probably write a bit about that too.
My first single, ‘Invisible,’ is now available on iTunes and Spotify, with all proceeds going to Young Minds.
I’m currently releasing my first EP, Honest, track by track and all five songs are now available on all major music platforms. However, there’s still more content to come…
