Autumn Lozano Biography

“I wouldn’t mind being remembered as a girl who found her purpose and never looked back.” Those are the words of Autumn Lozano, a singer/songwriter who found her purpose in music. Named after the beautiful season during which she was born, Autumn has lived in many cities from her birthplace Knoxville, Tennessee, then Chattanooga, Tennessee, several California towns, and now Southern California. She attended both Hope International University and Cal State Northridge and received a B.S. in Kinesiology. She has held jobs doing just about everything from being a fitness instructor, a pizza maker, a princess party thrower, a drama teacher and an event coordinator – but Autumn’s true passion lies in music.

“Even though music is so vast and has so many different styles, people can find a common ground with it,” Autumn says, “two people can hear the same song and have it mean two completely different things. A good song can reach beyond one theme.” Reaching people is something Autumn strives to do with the more than 100 songs she has written. “Everything I write has meant something to me at sometime and it’s easier to sing about something I know.”

Autumn's earliest musical experiences date back to singing La Bamba in her 2nd grade talent show when she realized she thrived on being the center of attention. Subsequent talent shows and a gig as the lead in her junior high musical were followed in high school by a stab at an all-girl band influenced by the musical stylings of Pat Benetar, Hole, and Pearl Jam. It was during this time that Autumn’s parents gave her a Yamaha acoustic guitar and she learned to play her first song, “House of the Rising Sun”. While her girl group never quite hit the big time, Autumn’s love for music remained alive. She eventually began singing in her church worship band, using her voice to inspire others.

Autumn’s music hit a rough patch several years ago when a long night of singing stretched her vocal cords to the point where talking was stressful and singing was not an option. This forced break from her music gave Autumn the opportunity to focus on her education, graduate from college, and begin her career as a physical education teacher. But it also made her realize how much she needed music in her life. With the help of a vocal coach, Autumn gradually nursed her voice back to health and got her music back on track.

It was at this time that Autumn’s songwriting blossomed and she began playing shows. Her first show in Hollywood solidified what she already knew – making music and sharing it with others was exactly what she wanted – and needed – to do. Since then, Autumn has played shows at clubs and venues all over Hollywood and the San FernandoValley, including many stops at The Pig & Whistle, Room 5, and Tangier in Los Feliz.  

Among her musical inspirations, Autumn lists artists such as The Cranberries, Fiona Apple, Ani DiFranco, David Crowder, Alanis Morisette, and Damien Rice. Through creating her own music, Autumn has developed an appreciation for those in the singer-songwriter genre and has grown to love the art of harmony. “I love to sing, and a flawless harmony sends chills over my body.”

Autumn’s music – the result of many twists and turns in life and the blending of a plethora of artistic influences – is a refreshing sound that will speak to the heart of many. Her unique voice, insightful, personal lyrics, haunting melodies and emotionally honest approach to writing make for a welcome and noteworthy addition to the 2010 generation of singer/songwriters.

Autumn on Music…

“I love the way a simple melody can take you back in time to that exact place you were sitting, or standing, or kneeling when that song unavoidably entered your thoughts.”
