Grammy Award Winning Songwriter, J.Lauryn is a rhythmic-reggae artist from the small town of Kailua, Hawaii. She moved to Los Angeles working as a professional dancer in 2007. During her career as a dancer she recalls dancing along side Queen Latifah at the 2011 People's Choice Awards as one of her favorite moments. It wasn't long before she began to shift her focus to writing and recording music.
In 2015, J.Lauryn was asked to perform her original song "Criminal Love" off her EP "ViBeS & HiGhS”, live on VH1's The Big Morning Buzz in Times Square, NYC. In 2017, her self produced, written, and engineered album, Golden Year, was released on her 29th birthday. That same year J.Lauryn became a Grammy Winner for a co-write on Ziggy Marley’s self titled album for the category, Best Reggae Album.
Now managed by Dre London (manager of Post Malone & Tyga), J.Lauryn’s songwriting career has reached new heights. “Goodbyes”, by Post Malone and Young Thug, was J’s first hit single with the song debuting at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts. Currently J.Lauryn is nominated for another Grammy Award for Album of The Year with Post Malone’s, Hollywood’s Bleeding, which successfully was the highest selling album of 2019.
At the beginning of 2020, J.Lauryn landed a placement on the highest pre-ordered album of all time, Map of The Soul 7, by the world’s biggest boy band, BTS. The song “00:00 Zero O’clock” was co-written by J.Lauryn and with over 4 Million albums pre-sold, she was very excited to be apart of yet another historic moment.
Currently signed to Warner, J.Lauryn has been working with a variety of Hit Producers and Songwriters such as Tayla Parx, Jorgen Odegard, Marcus Lomax, Pluss, T Minus, Fraser T. Smith, Sir Nolan and many more.
Throughout J’s songwriting career she has written music for other various acts such as Jessie J, Pia Mia, Ty Dolla $ign, Tyla Yaweh, French Montana, Ashanti, and Ronny J. No matter where J's dreams may take her, her ambition remains the same: spread good vibes, good messages, and positivity. Because, isn’t life meant to be about the vibes and the highs?
