I have exciting news!
The Honest EP is now in CD form and available to purchase at Resident Music in Brighton! The CDs include the five original tracks plus the acoustic versions so if you’re local (or even semi-local) and would like to support me and a wonderful independent music shop, you can pick up a copy now! You can also buy them online through Resident’s website here. This is a limited run so once they’re gone, they’re gone…
This is honestly a dream. Resident is such an amazing independent music shop and to have them selling my music is something I’d wished for but couldn’t even imagine at this point in my career. When we got in touch, I was hoping that they’d put a poster up as a ‘Support Local Artists!’ sort of thing; I had no idea that they’d suggest stocking the Honest EP. So this is beyond awesome – if I had a bucket list, this would be a big thing to be ticking off. I’d be drawing stars around it and everything.
So this is a very cool way to end the Honest era. It may not have gone as I’d planned but there have been some pretty great surprises along the way.

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!

So, one of my best friends and most frequent collaborators, Richard Marc, has just released his brand new single, ‘Close To You.’ Of course, I always share my friends’ music on my socials but I wanted to share this on here because I helped write the song and I’m really proud to have been part of it. It’s a really lovely song. Please go and check it out!
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.
