Lauren Hoffman is an American singer-songwriter. She was signed to Virgin Records America and released her debut album titled Megiddo in 1997.[1] She parted ways with the label in 1999, following her disenchantment with their lack of promotion for her,[2] whilst Virgin went on to issue her sophomore LP, 'From The Blue House' in the same year. A third album, 'Choreography', followed in 2006. In 2015, she released her first EP under new moniker The Secret Storm entitled In the Sun.[3]

She is produced in John Morand and David Lowery's studio Sound of Music Studios, along with artists such as Mint, Cracker and Sparklehorse.
