“Beloved Detroit-area songwriter/singer Lauren Crane has delivered unto us an album of utterly adorable, sweetly sexy, coolly observant songs. Annie Capps’ inventive, organic production mines Michigan’s extraordinarily rich musical world and the result is a happy wedding of uke-charmed Americana blues, ’30s-era sax mysterioso, deft writing (“What Do We Do About the Moon?” — how’s that for a title?) and plenty of close lady-harmony. Yum.”
Whit Hill, Kerrville New Folk Winner
“Lauren Crane’s Makin’ Honey just drips with fresh writing and arrangements that surprise at every turn. I highly recommend you check this one out.”
Matt Watroba WKAR, East Lansing, MI
Songwriting is a joy. Performing has been a surprise. This aspect of my writing started taking shape a couple of decades ago in the form of lyrics and verse. I asked musicians I knew if they’d write the music. But because a lot of my words came with a melody attached, I eventually figured out how to play what I was singing. Then I started singing in front of other people. I love words and I look for as many ways as I can to shape them into something interesting. I perform solo and with a band of songwriters, Taller Than They Appear.
