Country singer Lauren Duski, runner up on The Voice season 12 was the velvety voiced country singer from Team Adam Levine. Now dropping music independently, her latest song is the deeply personal “Costume Party.”
“There was a lot of pressure to put something out right away, both from fans and from industry, but I wasn’t ready, and my team and I chose to practice patience,” Lauren told Billboard magazine. “I’ve written over 150 songs in the last year and knew the day [co-writer] Justin [Morgan] and I wrote it, that ‘Costume Party’ was the message I wanted to share with the world first. It’s an observation of my own humanity delivered through a country song. I think that’s beautiful. It was the most vulnerable I’ve ever been, to the point that it was uncomfortable to even record these words.”
Fan response to the song has been positive. “It’s really opened people up and led them to share some really personal stories with me,” she said, “and that’s been incredible.” Some responded by making their own music videos for the song, which Lauren uses in her official “Costume Party” music video.
In the mean time, the singer has spent the month of August touring with radio personality Bobby Bones on his Red Hoodie Comedy Tour.
