Two Tiffanys celebrating what they love by giving it a stage and using their voices to spread the word.


Lauren Desberg – “Merry Melody Medley” (ft Kris Bowers) video

(@laurendesberg @krisbowersmusic)
Lauren Desberg is a 23-year-old jazz vocalist that is originally from Los Angeles, California, but is currently living in New York. I had never heard of her until a few days ago, when I stumbled on this song via Soundcloud while I was searching for Christmas-themed songs. Within a few seconds, I knew that I had to share it with you all. “Merry Melody Medley” is a medley of 7 classic Christmas songs that she covers in under 3 minutes, with the assistance of Los Angeles-based jazz pianist and composer, Kris Bowers. Lauren has such a beautiful voice that’s easy to listen to, and, on this song, it rests between a laid-back, matured jazz tone that occasionally stretches into some dazzling high, yet soft, pop notes. Watch the video below or stream it via the Soundcloud player, and then follow any one of the links listed to get to know her more. Also, check out her debut album, Twenty First Century Problems, that released earlier this year.
