“Loren writes the kind of music that when you listen to it you somehow feel like you’re getting a massage ... I’ve watched Loren play a few times and am always inspired by how effortless the music is." - John Butler “Fantastic artist. Fantastic songs. Amazing voice ...” - Ash Grunwald “Loren is the best roots songwriter in Oz. Full stop.” - Whitley Highly regarded among Australia’s leading musicians, Loren is taking his emotive and lyrically driven music to a new level of heart, soul, groove and energy with the launch of his latest album release, LISTENING TO THE MOON. Recorded with his new band, which features Mitch Mclennan on bass and Beck Flatt on drums, the album is the culmination of three years of songwriting and features guest appearances from respected musicians including Tijuana Cartel’s Josh Sinclair.
