Biography

“Brianna Lane is a star in the making. She's poised, ambitious, a great writer, a soul singer of the first order, and a lithe, accomplished guitarist.” (Jim Walsh, City Pages, Minneapolis, MN) This sweet-voiced alterna-folkie grew up in Minnesota, once found a home in the mountains of North Carolina, but who is truly a restless old soul. You can blame her sweetness on her roots but this girl has been on the road non-stop for several years so you can hear her experiences in every note she sings. This chick puts the word "singer" in singer/songwriter gains inspiration the books she reads and the people she meets along the way as well as drawing from such famous folkies as Shawn Colvin, Greg Brown, and Ryan Adams. In her years of traveling Lane has shared the stage with Dar Williams, The Weepies, and Jennifer Nettles (of Sugarland) as well as sharing dozens of dates with Chris Pureka and many other rising stars of the folk world.

Brianna Lane has two self-released albums and in the fall of 2007 Lane is celebrating the release of her third CD “Let You In”. Like the eleven tracks on “Radiator” (2005) this new collection of songs is introspective, heart-warming, and beautifully rough around the edges much like Lane’s outlook on life. "Lane's songs are beautiful and cathartic, almost telling us that it's OK to feel down, but not to let it get us down at the same time.” (Mish-Mash Reviews) Brianna Lane’s new album is much anticipated by all of her fans across the nation.

Brianna has a voice and a presence beyond her years. She strums an acoustic guitar with the same power in which she sings. Brianna is currently touring the east coast with Boston based singer/songwriter Liz Stahler on the “Boston to Austin Tour” with fundraising efforts benefiting The Lance Armstrong Foundation (www.LiveStrong.org) and Reach for the Skye. (www.ReachForTheSkye.com).
