Lauren White

Songstress and double bassist, Lauren White was awarded our 2024 Ken Weatherley Jazz Scholarship. And in late last year, she came into our Founders Studio to record-for-broadcast in our series, As It Happened. Our recording engineer was Dom Parker.

Lauren White spent her school life playing in orchestras, choirs, state music ensembles and the Schools Spectacular. At 18, she received the Jann Rutherford Award, and was mentored by jazz bassist Zoe Hauptmann, the inspiration for a career in jazz. She was a finalist for the James Morrison ‘Generations in Jazz’ Vocal Scholarship in 2018, and graduated from the Sydney Con in 2020 in Jazz Performance.

Lauren’s recording of As It Happened – Live At Founders was broadcast on 17th February on Emergent Jazz. Listen Anytime here
