NOTES
"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” More information can be found at www.BriannaLaneMusic.com


When Lane set out to make “Let You In” she approached producer Evan Brubaker who worked with her in the past to create “Radiator” (2005). Both Brubaker and Lane agreed that this new batch of songs craved a different type of instrumentation than the songs on “Radiator”. Instead of a drums and electric guitars Brubaker and Lane focused on simplicity when they employed the help of three extremely talented musicians to create a down-to-earth, acoustic and raw, Americana album. “Let You In” features upright bassist Keith Lowe who has worked closely with Bill Frisell, Laura Veirs, Fiona Apple, and Dave Mathews to name just a few. Seattle-based mandolin player Zak Borden sprinkles the record with mandolin goodness and singer/songwriter Jonathan Kingham added a touch of dobro and banjo to a few tracks as well.

Brianna Lane is currently touring the east coast and the Midwest to promote “Let You In” and with her is Boston-based singer/songwriter Liz Stahler. Together they are on the “Boston to Austin Tour” www.MySpace.com/lizandbrianna splicing their performances with 5K road races in order to raise awareness and funds for The Lance Armstrong Foundation www.LiveStrong.org as well as Reach For The Skye www.ReachForTheSkye.org
