HE CONQUEROR

At the age of 23, Lauren Deakin Davies has already made an impressive mark on the music production world. Having helmed over nine albums, received numerous awards for her work and being the youngest-ever full member of the MPG, the future looks bright indeed for the Hetfordshire-based producer…

LAUREN DEAKIN DAVIES INTERVIEW

“You’re either good at talking or you’ve got good management. That’s the strongest reason why you make it. You obviously also need to care a great deal about music production, and you need to want to do it every day, all the time,” so says Lauren Deakin Davies, a woman who, at the age of 23, has amassed a list of astounding achievements in a remarkably short space of time.

Working out of her impressive studio, The Den, Lauren’s productions have garnered interest from a range of high-profile artists, such as Laura Marling, Kate Dimbleby, Peggy Seeger and The Hoosiers. She also became, at the age of just 19, the Music Producer’s Guild’s youngest full member and has won two Producer of the Year accolades at the NMG awards. So how did her interest in music production begin?

“Well, I’ve been doing music since I was 11 years old and I’ve been in bands of varying sizes,” Lauren tells us. “One of the bands I was in when I was 15 started doing alright, and we ended up going to Universal Studios and Metropolis Studios and places like that. I remember walking into a studio and thinking, ‘Oh my God, this is the coolest thing in the world!’, so I really got into it then. There was also a local studio called The Cream Room which had a young artist called Alexa Mullins. She wanted me to come into the studio to sort of make sure she was okay and enjoy it. She knew I was embarking on studying music production, so I ended up working at that studio for a while which gave me a lot of grounding.”
