She may be commonly described as an alt-pop singer-songwriter, though she's always considered herself to be a writer first. MA Songwriting alumna Lauren Alex Hooper has just released the fourth single taken from her debut EP, 'Honest'.

The track, called 'Back To Life,' was written with Scott Colcombe aka scottisokay (a fellow Songwriting alumnus) and it was produced by Lauren herself and Richard Marc (another Songwriting graduate).
