Question The Answers Podcast: Episode #50 – Lauren Denitzio

Lauren Denitzio, and their dog, is conquering TikTok one post at a time.

Lauren Denitzio is the driving force behind the band Worriers. They began the band after having been in another band called The Measure, and have now released three full-length albums along with a few EPs, most recently a 5-song covers album featuring their take on Rancid, Tom Petty, The New Pornographers, and more.

Now in their tenth year of existence, Worriers has established themselves as a true standout in the current Punk scene, and have been able to partner with labels like No Idea, 6131, Don Giovanni, Side One Dummy along with self-releasing material. On top of this, they have worked with some really fantastic producers including Laura Jane Grace and John Agnello.

The band is essentially Lauren’s project, and is currently backed by Nick Psillas on bass, Mikey Erg on drums, and Frank Piegaro (formerly of the band Ensign) on guitar. As Lauren describes in the episode, having a certain fluidity in the make up of the band has allowed them to take on more opportunities and not be as restricted by what sometimes conventional band structures might otherwise hinder.

Currently living in Los Angeles, Lauren Denitzio has roots in the East Coast having grown up in New Jersey and living in Brooklyn for many years after attending college. Besides performing full-time in Worriers, They have an established career in illustration and design, which we talk about during the episode.
