Austin, TX was abuzz with all things film and music during SXSW as Lauren Jenkins
arrived at the intersection of both mediums, premiering her short music film at the independent Violent Crown Cinema and performing at the Austin City Limits Live Morning Broadcast alongside artists such as Patty Griffin and Steve Earle. The singer/songwriter, who conceptualized and starred in the short music film,
which is available exclusively on Amazon Music’s iOS App, shared the cinematic endeavor just two nights before she released her first full-length studio album NO SAINT (Big Machine Records), available everywhere right now
. I can’t remember a time where an artist used music and cinema so effectively to launch new music. Lauren is one of the most intriguing new talents to arrive in Nashville in a really long time.
