    With Wasted In Jackson [Universal Republic Records], Lauren Pritchard truly has crafted the best debut of 2010.

    It's alternative soul live you've never heard before, and Lauren speaks truth with every lyric and melody. "When the Night Kills the Day" curls from a wave of piano into an unnervingly unforgettable chorus. At the same time, "Not the Drinking" is a funny yet somber tale of why a relationship didn't work. The title track sheds some light on why Lauren picked up and moved all over chasing her dream, while "Hanging Up" might just be the ultimate "goodbye" track with its catchy chorus and vivid lyrics. Visit Jackson with Lauren for a real rollercoaster.

    Fiona Apple finally has some competition…

    Lauren Pritchard sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for an exclusive interview about telling the truth on Wasted In Jackson, where her songs come from and why this album is a bit like Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.
