Hi Lauren! I recently discovered your music before this past year's LeakyCon in Portland. I love your songs! I was wondering how you got started writing wizard rock and if you have any advice for aspiring wizard rockers. Thanks so much. DFTBA!
I started writing wizard rock with my best friend Nina as The Moaning Myrtles after I went to a few Harry and the Potters concerts in 2005. I was super inspired and excited about their show and the quickly growing community of wizard rock bands and fans online, and I wanted to be a part of it. The community was super supportive of us and our music right away and it got crazy insane from there! I started writing music on my own when I went away to college because I wanted to keep at it even though Nina and I live far apart.
The advice I always give to new wizard rockers is that they should do it and do it now and be themselves and just have fun because it was the best decision I ever made. Wizard rock changed my life in the best way possible.
