Early life and education 
Music career 
Christy was a member of several bands. Her first band, Pink Ash, consisted of six male members and herself. Her stage name was Susie Reptile. After frantically writing and looking for inspiration from her keyboards, Christy achieved both a publishing deal with EMI and a major label record contract with Polygram Records.
She released her self-titled debut album on February 19, 1993, including the singles "You Read Me Wrong" and "Steep," which targeted the adult contemporary market. Her second, Breed, was released on July 22, 1997 and featured a substantially different style than Lauren Christy, being more of a pop rock album.
In 1994, Christy had a minor AC hit with "The Color of the Night", the theme song to the Bruce Willis film Color of Night, Cantonese sung by Karen Tong. After the song gained airplay, her eponymous debut album was re-released with "The Color of the Night" included as a bonus track.
Three years later, she contributed the song "Breed" to the Batman and Robin soundtrack, which was also released as the first single for the Breed album. Though the song's video received heavy rotation on MTV, the single and album failed to chart. The second single, "Magazine" also failed to make an impression.
Though Breed is Christy's most recent full length album as of 2007[update] (reportedly plans for a third album were shelved with the demise of Mercury Records), she has continued to contribute to film and television soundtracks, particularly the song "Walk This Earth Alone" on the Great Expectations soundtrack. The track "Anywhere the Wind Blows" appears in the film Seven Girlfriends (as does Christy herself, in a bit part) and "Satellite" can be found on the closing credits to William Shatner's Free Enterprise, though neither song has seen a commercial release outside of the movie appearances. "I Want What I Want" from the Breed album made it into the movie Wild Things, but failed to make it onto the movie's soundtrack.
The Matrix: Writing and producing career 
Since the late 1990s, Christy has primarily worked with her husband; songwriter and music producer Graham Edwards and musician, composer and remixer Scott Spock in pop music writing and production team called The Matrix. In this capacity, she has written or co-written and produced songs for Tokio Hotel, Christina Aguilera, Backstreet Boys, Hilary Duff, Ronan Keating, Korn, Avril Lavigne, Lillix, Ricky Martin, Ashley Parker Angel, Kelly Clarkson, Mcfly, Jason Mraz, Liz Phair, Ashley Tisdale, Britney Spears, Skye Sweetnam, Shakira, Miranda Cosgrove, Enrique Iglesias, Katy Perry and Adam Longlands.
