At the age of 9, Lauren Taneil (aka LT), was introduced to the bass guitar by her father, Michi Robinson, who taught her everything he knew. LT grew up listening to a lot of funk, rhythm & blues and gospel, and consequently credits Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Quincy Jones and Prince as just a few of her key influences.
As her love and desire for bass grew, her playing matured and she began to get opportunities playing for major artists, including Monica, Keyshia Cole, and Jill Scott. Soon after, she joined Beyoncé's all-female band and was a part of the Live at Roseland concert DVD as well as The Revel Concert. She also played bass for Beyoncé on the Michael Jackson tribute, and you can see her in two of Beyoncé’s music videos "End of Time" and "I Was Here".
At the 2013 Superbowl, Lauren Taneil played live with Beyoncé during the half-time show.
LT uses the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface wherever she goes. "I like the Scarlett 2i2 because it makes recording bass and vocals easy for me when I'm on the road or at home. It's small, compact and fits right into my gig bag. Plus, it's really cute. Especially for girls."
