Born into a rich musical heritage, Lauren Talley Alvey has become one of the most versatile artists in Christian music. This extremely talented young lady with a passion for ministry is not only an accomplished vocalist, but is also an author, producer/arranger, voice/performance coach and studio background singer.
From age 2, Lauren was a staple in the Talleys’ concerts and grew up listening to many styles of music. She credits the Martins and CeCe Winans as her greatest influences in Christian music. By age 13, Lauren had developed her own unique style and today is an instantly recognizable voice in the gospel music world.
Along with performing on stage with the Talleys, Lauren has an extensive solo career and has recorded four solo albums. Her latest, Songs In The Night, accompanies her first book of the same title. Lauren has been honored with three Singing News Fan Awards, two SGN Music Awards and a Southern Gospel Music award for her individual work.
She has been a voice/performance coach for the Steve Hurst School of Music for 10 years and has worked with many up-and-coming artists including the Browns, the Beene Family, the Jody Brown Indian Family, New Desire and CS&K. Lauren also has performed background vocals for many artists including Paul Simon, Randy Travis, Jake Hess, Ivan Parker, the Collingsworth Family and Mark Bishop. Her collaborative efforts include duets with David Phelps, Jason Crabb and Mark Bishop. In 2001 Lauren appeared on an episode of the CBS drama “Touched By An Angel.” She has appeared on many Gaither Homecoming videos and concerts alongside the Gaither Vocal Band, Guy Penrod, Mark Lowry, David Phelps, and many other gospel music legends.
On June 25, 2011, Lauren married the love of her life, Brian Alvey, and is excited about the new opportunities God is placing in front of her to speak to audiences, teach her Songs In The Night Power Study and share that broken people can find hope in Jesus Christ. When she’s not on the road, Lauren is in the kitchen cooking down-home Southern food for her husband or watching the University of Tennessee sports teams and the Indianapolis Colts.
