Book tickets for Lauren Housley and the Northern Cowboys

Lauren Housley, is an award-winning singer and songwriter hailing from Yorkshire and a young female artist and recent mother of two who has already made her mark with three independent albums and two BBC Radio playlist hit singles. Housley’s innate talent of writing beautiful, engaging songs, was born from the intuitive craft of earthy storytelling and delivered with an emotive knock out vocal performance at their core.

Early 2022, she decided to focus on developing her live show and going full tilt with the addition of The Northern Cowboys to being a 6 piece with key members Thomas Dibb and Mark Lewis. The Live Band rapidly developed into a recording and performance led music outfit with a new sonic departure, garnering two nominations at the 2024 UK Americana Music Awards for her song “High Time” and Live Act Of The Year. The band have also been invited to play the prestigious festival SXSW in March 2024.

Housley will be leaving a trail of joy with her ‘Rousing’ new shows,  introducing songs from the next release as Lauren Housley and The Northern Cowboys and some classics.  Influential Blog, ‘Holler’ included the band in their TOP 10 artists seen at the Black Deer Festival 2023 whilst others witnessing the band referenced the performance as a UK female vocal fronted version of Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats  -  be prepared to be uplifted and moving those hips and leaving with some lyrics to think about.

Housley's first three albums, Sweet Surrender in 2015, The Beauty of This Life in 2017 and current album ‘Girl From the North 2021, which was produced a fresh and eclectic sound around the central theme of one rediscovering herself and her roots: "To move forward we sometimes have to go back. I wanted to prove to myself that it doesn't matter where you are in the world, you can make great music." Lauren confides, "Returning to my hometown of Rotherham a few years ago, after leaving at the age of 18, seemed like the most bizarre decision I'd ever made. It was never part of my 'plan' but it has in fact enabled me to reassess my life and career goals and move forward in a way that feels true to myself."
