Q

What happened to your music? Are you still recording and releasing new wrock?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 12/17/2014
A

Nothing happened to it. All of my music is still available on iTunes and bandcamp and I have a bunch of videos of my music on my youtube channel!

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/laure...
bandcamp: http://laurenfairweather.bandcamp.com
my music on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...

Songwriting takes me a lot of time, so yes, I've been slowly releasing new music. It's not the sort of thing I'd prefer to rush... I'd rather take my time writing and recording so when I'm able to release music, it'll be something I'm proud of. Currently, I am writing and recording music for my new band, With Flying Colors (with Matt from The Whomping Willows, Kristina from The Parselmouths, and Tyler from The Remus Lupins). http://www.facebook.com/withflyingcolors...

I've also been playing lots of live shows and I've got a bunch of Yule Ball themed concerts coming up, which you can find out about on http://www.laurenfairweather.com/shows

Hey Lauren, what's happened to the Hufflepuff necklaces you designed on your Etsy shop? I loved them so much! Have they sold out? :)


Lauren Fairweather responded on 12/15/2014

Yes, badger necklaces have sold out! I am currently reordering all of the parts and then once I get those in the mail, it will take me a little while to put more of them together, so hopefully they'll be available again sometime in January or February.

The items on my etsy shop sell out regularly, since they take quite a bit of my time for me to make.

Lauren you are amazing, and truly talented!
I love your music (especially Post Potter Depression and Maybe), and I was wondering if you will be playing any shows in Louisiana? P.s. Your awesome

Thank you so much! I've played a few shows in Louisiana over the years (New Orleans in 2010 and 2011, Baton Rouge in 2009 and I was in New Orleans for the Harry Potter Conference Phoenix Rising in 2007), but unfortunately, I am no longer able to tour. That basically means that I can only play shows that other people are putting together and invite me to, and I need to be able to travel just for that show and then return home after rather than driving around and playing a whole bunch of shows all over the place like I used to. If someone organizes an event in Louisiana that works with my schedule and is able to raise the money to pay for me to get there, I'd love to come back for a show sometime! :)

Hi! I am a new subscriber and just watched your etsy packaging. It was a great video and was wondering what printer do you use. Also do you recommend any illustrator tutorials? Thanks!


Lauren Fairweather responded on 11/30/2014
A

I just have a regular old HP Photosmart that doesn't work half the time... nothing special but it eventually gets the job done after wrestling with it for a while. As far as illustrator tutorials go, I mostly google whatever I want to learn and tutorials come up. I originally took a class on the program in college. Nicole's Classes has some great free tutorials and I'm hoping to eventually take some of their paid classes when I've saved up enough! http://nicolesclasses.com/free-tutorials...

Q

I know you said With Flying Colors isn't a wizard rock band, but will you guys sing songs about other books or tv shows like Armoured Bearcub did?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 11/27/2014
A

I'm not sure yet! We've only written one song so far and it's not about any books or tv shows. I guess you'll have to wait and see. :)

Hi Karina! I'm so happy that you liked the snowy owl dress I made. I was actually your age when I started reading the Harry Potter books! Thank you for watching my video and writing me such a nice message! :)

Q

i was just wondering.... what course did you take at college/uni? because i'm currently in my final year of high school and i'm really confused... all i want to do in my life is making crafts like what you do hahaha (while the rest of my classmates are taking 'serious' courses like engineering :/) thanks a lot


Lauren Fairweather responded on 10/19/2014
A

I got my degree in Psychology but I'm not using it. I wanted to go to school for music or art but my parents wanted me to study something more practical instead. I ended up spending all of my free time making crafts, videos, and music in my dorm room (and driving to play wizard rock shows). Luckily, I had space for elective classes outside of my major so I was able to take guitar lessons, art and design classes, and things like that.

Q

Now that you are starting a band with Matt and Kristina, you think any of the songs will be wrock or just all muggle music?


Lauren Fairweather responded on 09/27/2014

We discussed this at the livestream where we announced our new band the other day, but in case you missed it, With Flying Colors will be muggle music.
