Co-Founder of FEMME HOUSE and managing member of Animal Talk Collective
Lauren A. Spalding graduated from high school on a Thursday afternoon and then started working as a publicity intern at Capitol Records the next morning. That was over fifteen years ago, and she has not worked a “real” job since. As an artist management consultant for her own shop, The Spalding Company, she’s shepherded fruitful partnerships to help bring her clients’ big ideas to life. As a managing member of Sofi Tukker’s artist oasis, Animal Talk Collective, she’s been a songwriter, party planner, publishing executive and webmaster, sometimes all in the same day. As co-founder of an educational non-profit FEMME HOUSE, she chips away at the equity gap inherent to the technical roles of the music industry by providing women and non-binary folx opportunities to learn how to be producers and engineers. And, as her artist alter ego, hermixalot, she lives out her pre-teen Missy Elliot dreams, writing and performing songs to move the people.
