Bio

Lauren Cuskelly (L.A) is creating a musical world of her own. Musical boundaries will be stretched out of the ordinary, but her creative lyrics and addictive pop melodies ensure that listeners will continue flock to her.

With a musical upbringing similar to that of many other artists, it was when Cuskelly uncovered her most influential of music idols that her attention changed and her new take on song-writing began to set her apart from the rest. From piano lessons at a young age, L.A turned to pop-songwriting in her teen years. It was at this pivotal time that the out-there, and sometimes controversial, styles and songs of Katy Perry, Halsey and Charli XCX shifted Cuskelly’s focus, and fueled her determination.

Cuskelly commenced her tertiary studies in a Bachelor of Music at the Queensland University of Technology in 2016. Since then her effort has been driven into work-shopping her song-writing, challenging her genre and stylistic choices, and embracing live performance. With an obsession for Pop Culture extending beyond the music scene, L.A’s 21st century influences are evident in her lyrics, signature sound, visual performance and even the instrumental content of her tracks. Crafting audio samples from social media and television icons and integrating them through some of her electronic works is just one example of L.A’s modern approach to pop music, in every sense of the word. L.A continues to explore the genre of experimental electronic music, perfectly complementing her glitchy glitzy vocals and forward-thinking topics.

Her new single titled 'It's A Party' comes as L.A's second single continuing her glitchy, glitzy pop sound heard through her debut track SODA. However, L.A's growth as an artist is sounded through this new track. It's gritty, sexy vibe matches the catchy hooks and intriguing lyric that will take you to a party you won't forget.

Yung Mallrat feels from this track. A little bit of sugar and spice blended in the mix.
