"Praise for "Radiator""

“Her smartly written lyrics paint a portrait of a woman on the road searching for honesty and love. Her disarming voice lends those lyrics a feeling of innocent sincerity and heart. Fans of Dar Williams, early Suzanne Vega, the Indigo Girls and good songwriting in general will love this disk.” - Asheville Disclaimer


"Praise for "Let You In""

“All these tunes evoke a peaceful fatalism that beats you like innocent rain. You can’t refuse them so you stay glued right there, all soaked up.” - The Indie -Asheville, NC

Bio

"Brianna Lane is a star in the making...poised, ambitious, a soul-singer of the first order, and an accomplished guitarist." - Jim Walsh (Star Tribune/WalshPages Minneapolis, MN)

Brianna Lane is a gifted singer/songwriter in true Americana form. She writes and performs on an acoustic guitar as well as a banjo, crafting songs that are clear-eyed and pure—with an integrity derived from her gritty, unflinching emotional honesty. Long time music-writer/author/rock-journalist Jim Walsh recently wrote that Brianna Lane is “…a star in the making. She’s poised, ambitious, a great writer, a soul singer of the first order, and an accomplished guitarist.” (Star Tribune) Lane grew up in Minnesota and still calls Minneapolis home. In her eight years of touring Lane has shared the stage with Gillian Welch & David Rawlings, Colin Hay, Billy Bragg, Dar Williams, Patty Larkin, The Weepies, Jennifer Nettles (of Sugarland), and numerous other well seasoned musicians. She has also shared powerhouse, leg-powered bicycle tours with Signature Sounds’ artist Peter Mulvey. Lane has released three full length solo records and one duo EP with Cahalen Morrison as “Harbor Collective”. Her latest full-length CD is entitled “Let You In”.
