Lauren Ross, AKA La Louma, is a Los Angeles-based classically trained multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer with a soulful queer-punk ethos, who “makes complex pop music sound effortless” (She Shreds).
While she could be heard playing flute, clarinet, bassoon, french horn, and trumpet on St. Vincent’s debut LP, Marry Me, in 2007, it wasn’t until 2017 that she released her own debut, Let the World Be Flooded Out. OUT Magazine called the album "a powerfully relatable 10-track breakout" and Billboard heralded it as “catchy and cool, but drenched with a call to action." She has played Treefort Music Fest, KCRW’s Chinatown Summer Nights and shows with Mirah, Jenn Champion and Rituals of Mine. Her songs Simple Things + The Decline of Nations were heard in MTV’s Catfish and If We Don't Now We Never Will in NBC’s Good Girls.

Vocals, piccolo, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, cornet, french horn, banjo, strumstick, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, electric bass, v-drums, and tambourine were performed, recorded, produced, and mixed by La Louma in her garage. 

All songs written by Lauren Ross and published by To The River (ASCAP) except “Aaj Mausam Bada Beimann Hai” written by Bakshi/Kudalkar/Sharma
