A “Three Cups of Coffee and the Truth Interview” with Lauren Adams during the 12 Step Music Fest in the Florida Keys.  (Running Time: 16 min. 42 sec.)

Adams’ music is a fusion of rock, folk, country, and blues – aka Americana. With stellar musicianship on her third CD, Secret Heart and production by guitar veteran Nicholas Newell Kirgo (David Lynch, Vonda Shepard), “Secret Heart,” is a virtual who’s who of the L.A. music scene.

As host of the long running Americana Music Circle (Kulak’s Woodshed, Hollywood), she has shared the stage with some of the greatest talent from every corner of the globe.

More importantly, Lauren has been actively involved with local charitable events, including Hep C Aware (Hepatitis C awareness group), the House of Hope (shelter for women & families), Children of the Night (rescues runaway teens in Hollywood), along with benefit shows for musicians in need of health care.
