Lauren Christy

Lauren Christy is a singer and songwriter born in London, England. She studied at the Bush Davies Ballet School from age 11 to 17, before she decided to become a musical artist.

She was a member of several bands. Her first band, Pink Ash, consisted of six male members and herself. She called herself "Susie Reptile". After frantically writing and looking for inspiration from her keyboards, Lauren achieved both a publishing deal with EMI and a major label record contract with Polygram Records.

She released her self-titled debut album on February 19, 1993, including the singles "You Read Me Wrong" and "Steep," which targeted the adult contemporary market. Her second, "Breed", was released on July 22, 1997 and featured a substantially different style than "Lauren Christy", being more of a pop rock album.

In 1994, she had a minor AC hit with "The Color Of The Night", the theme song to the Bruce Willis film "Color of Night". After the song gained airplay, her eponymous debut album was re-released with "The Color Of The Night" included as a bonus track.

Three years later, she contributed the song "Breed" to the "Batman and Robin" soundtrack, which was also released as the first single for the "Breed" album. Though the song's video received heavy rotation on MTV, the single and album failed to chart. The second single, "Magazine" also failed to make an impression.

Though "Breed" is Christy's most recent full length album as of 2007 (reportedly plans for a third album were shelved with the demise of Mercury Records Fact|date=June 2007), she has continued to contribute to film and TV soundtracks, particularly the song "Walk This Earth Alone" on the Michael Doyle produced "Great Expectations" soundtrack. The track "Anywhere the Wind Blows" appears in the film "Seven Girlfriends" (as does Christy herself, in a bit part) and "Satellite" can be found on the closing credits to William Shatner's "Free Enterprise", though neither song has seen a commercial release outside of the movie appearances. "I Want What I Want" from the Breed album made it into the movie "Wild Things" but failed to make it onto the movie's soundtrack.

Since the late 1990s, Christy has primarily worked with husband Graham Edwards and Scott Spock in a songwriting-producing team called The Matrix. In this capacity, she has written or co-written songs for Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Backstreet Boys, Lillix, Ricky Martin, Hilary Duff, Liz Phair, Ronan Keating, Christina Aguilera, Skye Sweetnam, Korn, Jason Mraz and Mcfly.
