Lauren Christy, 'Me, Myself & I' Writer, Signs With Reservoir: Exclusive
Lauren Christy, whose songwriting credits include G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha’s platinum hit “Me, Myself & I,” is the latest addition to the roster at music publisher Reservoir. A founding member of writing-production trio The Matrix, Christy was signed to Reservoir by senior VP of creative and A&R Donna Caseine. This marks Caseine’s first signing since joining the company in June.
In addition to “Me, Myself & I,” which peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, the British-born Christy counts Avril Lavigne’s “Complicated” and Enrique Iglesias’ “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You)” among her writing credits.
The seven-time Grammy Award nominee -- one of only six women nominated in the producer of the year Grammy category -- also co-penned Iggy Azalea’s “Team,” the Teen Choice Award-nominated lead single from the rapper’s upcoming sophomore album, and “Stand in the Light,” the debut release from The Voice season 9 winner Jordan Smith.
Christy launched her music career as a solo artist in the ‘80s before co-founding The Matrix with Graham Edwards and Scott Spock in 1999. The trio wrote and produced songs for David Bowie, Britney Spears and Rihanna, among others.
In a release announcing Reservoir’s new signing, Caseine cited Christy’s diverse pop resumé. “Lauren is a songwriting powerhouse,” said Caseine, “delivering hit after hit and transcending all genres.”
