FEATHER RECORDING ARTIST BIO Lauren Passarelli's insatiable desire for guitar started when she was four years old and wanted to be a Beatle. Now a professor at Berklee College of Music she is known as one of the most distinctive guitarists in Boston, recognized as a great guitarist by such notables as Pat Metheny. Lauren's orchestrated guitar parts incorporate more than just rhythm or lead guitar playing. Audibly there is a rare combination of both simultaneously harmonically rich, melodically memorable and rhythmically alive. She hooked up with producer & arranger Cindy Brown whose writing and impressionistic textures add a sophisticated edge to the songs. Lyrically their songs reflect great depth of thought and emotion. Together they define the sound of their art/rock band, Two Tru ® - a compelling combination of influences resulting in an original stamp on songwriting with signature guitar & keyboard arrangements that are as memorable as the songs themselves.
