Welcome to Episode 20 of the Untamed Podcast with guest Lauren Stamm.
Lauren Stamm is the creator and songwriter of ‘I AM,’ a play with music. Throughout her own life experiences, Lauren consistently turned to music as a means of self expression and a source of healing. Discovering that the songs she had written over the course of nearly a decade told an important story, she created ‘I AM,’ which explores the parallel stories of two main characters struggling to find personal fulfillment and acceptance.
Lauren currently resides in New York City, where she works as an onset teacher and tutor to young actors and continues to bring her creation, I AM, to life.
