A TEENAGE singer-songwriter with dreams of performing in Nashville is looking to make a splash in her home town of Weston with a raft of upcoming gigs.

Lauren-Jaye Cahill has had a passion for music since she was a young child when she began singing and first performed on stage when she was 13.

Now 18, Lauren-Jaye will perform in a number of venues in and around Weston over the next months.

Having developed an early passion for singing, she first performed at a charity event at the Princess Theatre in Torquay when she was 13.

Since then she has become a regular at open mic nights in Weston, having first stepped up to the microphone at Cheers Bar with Johnny Edgar last year.

Her current influences include Demi Lovato, Jessie J and Sugarland, and her set list contains songs by artists such as Taylor Swift, Tina Arena and Katy Perry, as well as several of her original songs.

Lauren-Jaye, who currently studies music at Weston College’s campus in Loxton Road where guitar wizard Cliff Moore is her tutor, says she wants to perform in the country music hotspot of Nashville in the United States of America.

She will perform at The Brit Bar in High Street on Saturday at 8pm, The Dolphin in Uphill Way on Monday at 4pm and The Anchor Inn in Bridgwater Road, Lympsham on May 19 at 8pm.
