Celeb Secrets: Is there any artist you would love to collaborate with in the future? 

Madeline Lauer: “School Boy Q, Anderson .Paak, and Miguel are on the top of the list.”

Celeb Secrets: Any upcoming projects besides “Open Book”?

Madeline Lauer: “I have already started writing the follow-up album titled Non Fiction. It has a similar sentiment to Open Book, but I will be revisiting some dark and unpleasant experiences that I haven’t talked about on Open Book. However, the music will still hold that same sensual and relationship-based mood as in Open Book.”

Celeb Secrets: Why should our fans listen to your music? 

Madeline Lauer: “I am not scared to talk about my insecurities, struggles, and sexual anguish. I think young women listening to it will relate to a lot of the experiences I write about. When an artist can put something a listener has felt into words, that is when the music becomes significant to them. I hope I have achieved that in Open Book.”

Celeb Secrets: Can you share a secret about yourself that your fans might not know? And a behind-the-scene secret about your new album? 

Madeline Lauer: “Beyond frustrated with this industry, I decided to quit music when I was 22 years old. I told my whole family I was moving home and started the process of coming back to Ohio. My mom, who has always left that door open, wasn’t actually thrilled I would be giving up so soon. She convinced me to enroll myself in the Los Angeles Film and Recording school and learn how to make my own music. I actually received a Bachelor’s degree and started a new journey in the world of audio engineering. It’s not actually a secret, but it isn’t something a lot of people know about me.”

A behind the scenes secret about the album: “While making Open Book, I was a receptionist at Conway Recording Studios. The extremely supportive manager of Conway allowed The BMMB and I to sneak in before and after sessions to use the microphones and all of the amazing outboard gear Conway had to offer. We basically got to use $3,000/day rooms for free.”
