Lauren Daigle | “Smokey Soul… Passionate Fire” | ‘How Can It Be’

Lauren Daigle Smokey Soul... Passionate Fire How Can It Be

One of Christian music’s breakout artists of 2014, Lauren Daigle, continues her momentum in the new year with the release of her Centricity Music debut ‘How Can It Be’.

Blessed with a voice that is both smoky and sweet, Lauren Daigle has forged a unique sound that combines the soulful, heart-in-throat vulnerability of Adele, with the passionate fire to serve God that Daigle admires in Brooke Fraser. Her Centricity Music debut, ‘How Can It Be,’ is ripe with the kind of compelling lyrics and engaging melodies that invite listeners to draw closer to their creator, and that’s just what Daigle had in mind.

“There’s a continuing theme on this record—trust,” says Daigle. “My heart’s cry is that people feel empowered as a body of Christ. It’s just heavy on my heart for all of us to rise up in unity and recognize the goodness of God. My hope is that people are empowered by knowing who they belong to, knowing that they are the son or daughter of God, and in response to that being able to worship fully, worship with complete abandon.”

In a short time, Lauren Daigle has made an impressive mark on the Christian music scene. She appeared on Jason Gray’s Christmas tour and opened for Aaron Shust on the Morning Rises trek. She sang with Hillsong, an experience she’ll always treasure, and leads worship three or four Sundays a month at Atlanta’s North Point Community Church, pastored by Andy Stanley. She has a heart for victims of human trafficking, a cause she has given her time and energy to since her college days.

Lauren Daigle has a passion to see lives changed and knows that music is a powerful vehicle. “I hope that as these songs hit peoples’ ears, they don’t hear my voice, they don’t hear really good production, so they can say, ‘Whoa Lord, I’m encountering YOU right now,’” says Daigle. “That’s my heart’s cry for How Can It Be. That people are moved and lives get changed because they get to encounter more about God and see His character.”
