Toastmaster: Lauren Oxford

Lauren Oxford (formerly Lauren Cox, now married as of April 2022) is a songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist who stumbled into filk by befriending Cat Faber, who is still her very favorite convention travel partner. She is a four-time Pegasus nominee, twice for Best Writer/Composer in 2018 and 2019, and twice for Best Performer in 2020 and 2021.

Her self-titled debut album was recorded in June 2022 with dear filk friends and released at OVFF 38; it’s FINALLY A THING THAT EXISTS IN THE WORLD and is available digitally and on CD.
Lauren lives in the lush, green mountains of East Tennessee with her wife Emma and their three cats, Ansel, Henri, and Alli. She’s beyond honored to be a guest at a convention that means so much to her.
