Singer, songwriter, and healing artist Lauren Monroe graces the music scene once again with her signature soulful voice, with the release of her new single If You Want. Taken from her highly anticipated album Messages from Aphrodite, If You Want is an Americana masterpiece, overflowing with flawless vocals, heartfelt melodies and inspiring lyrics, that spread the message of positivity, love, and healing. 

Monroe inspires through her sayings: "In every moment we have a choice to live in love or in fear. To live in love or anger, in love or worry. In every moment we have the opportunity to choose love over and over again. I believe that love is not just a feeling, it is a place, a home, a sanctuary of hope and meaning, but only if you choose it.”
