A Calgary-based folk singer is hitting the road for a cross-Canada tour to celebrate the release of her debut album.

Stories From Home is a compilation of songs by Lauren Mann from the previously released Lauren Mann EP and Lost and Found EP, as well as three unreleased tracks, all of which were written and recorded between 2006 and 2009.

Mann has been passionate about music since she was a child. She began with classical piano and as a teenager began learning jazz.

Even though Stories From Home is a solo album, Mann has collaborated with many friends and musicians since she started performing and recording.

Friends who join Mann on stage are known as the Fairly Odd Folk. They often include musicians like Jon Purshke, Aaron Fraser, Distance Bullock, Carissa Webster, Andrew Dullum, Jon Seib, Elliott Mann, Andrew Hamill and Zoltan Szoges.

Mann approaches songwriting as a storyteller using the words, melodies, chords and phrasing to tell a story.

Her music combines songwriting with pop-folk melodies.

Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk will be playing at the Brickhouse on June 11 at 8 p.m.
