Born in Flint, MI, Loren Barnese was always an eccentric, out-of-the-box thinker with an extensive imagination and a drive to mold her own future. When she was 16, she organized and managed her own benefit concert with several local bands and sponsors to fund her 10-week backpacking trip to Europe.
At 18, she abandoned her plans to study business at Western Michigan University and moved to New York City to study at the prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre.
After school, she moved into an arts and activists’ commune in Brooklyn where she met and collaborated with a belly-dancer who specialized in working with fire. She and the fire-dancer began performing all around Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan as a part of a great underground performing circus community. She continued to work in theatre on and back stage, managing many off-Broadway plays and musicals, working in film, painting on commission and modeling for sculptors and painters.
At 21, Loren began working at UCLA to mentor Theater, Film & TV students. Craving education, herself, she studied at Brooklyn Conservatory of Music and the Musician’s Institute in Hollywood. Currently, Loren Barnese is producing an album with her team of musicians, engineers and producers. Her home studio, Hollywood Audio Lab—co-run with sound engineer, Marc Solomon, is currently working with many corporations, indie bands, and directors.
