Her original music is featured in The Drowning, (starring Julia Stiles, Avan Jogia, Josh Charles and Tracie Thoms), El Juego de Las Llaves, (Ela Velden, Maite Perroni, and Marimar Vega), and Romeo y Julieta (starring Lupita Nyong’o and Juan Castano), scored by one of Lauren’s musical partners, Michael Thurber. Henderson uncovers the layers of her diverse background in English and Spanish. Her compositions paint stories reflecting journeys imposed through the African Diaspora in connection to Henderson’s Panamanian, Montserratian, and vast Caribbean roots as they interplay with her North American upbringing.
Jazz, Latin Jazz, Flamenco, R&B and Soul roots aid in an exploration of culture, society, race, love and the complexities encountered as we navigate life’s obstacles. Embarking on her 10th world tour, Henderson has performed in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Norway, Russia, Mexico, and South Africa, living up to her growing reputation as a “vibrant new star singer” – Downbeat Magazine.
Henderson combines her passion for music, philanthropy, and business as the CEO of Brontosaurus Records and an internationally acclaimed recording artist. Recently featured in the Financial Times, Henderson’s achievements are celebrated worldwide. As the Founder and CEO of Brontosaurus Records, Lauren Henderson graduated with an Executive MBA from Brown University (RI) and the IE Business School (Madrid) in May of 2019.
