NOTES
This chick puts the word "singer" in singer/songwriter. Brianna grew up in Minnesota so you can blame her sweetness on her roots but this girl has been on the road non-stop for two years so you can hear her experiences in every note she sings. She has a voice and a presence beyond her years. She strums an acoustic guitar with the same sweetness and power in which she sings. Brianna is currently in the studio working on her second release due out this spring.

Brianna Lane - "On Rooftops" - Displayed like a paint-by-numbers with lush, vivid colors, Brianna Lane puts her songs on display like a bright spectrum of the rainbow. Moving the canvas from Minneapolis, Minnesota to the steep hills of Asheville, North Carolina, Brianna found much success with her geographic decision. With her debut album tucked under her arm, Brianna took her act to the road and traveled up and down the East coast creating an ever-lasting fan base to her portfolio. Her music is about self-expression, love and heartache presented with rich vocals. I love how Brianna paints a picture with every word in every lyric in her songs. She gives you the moon, the stars and everything in between with her beautiful lyrics and stunning vocals. "On Rooftaps" dazzles with artistic creativity, realistic lyrics and a smooth, soft voice to boot! It's an easy listen, very pleasing and pure folk enjoyment! Listen to this girl as she sings it from the rooftops, her undeniable talent with capture you and leave you wanting more.

Some words about "on rooftops" from Brianna...
This is my debut album, made for the purpose of giving anyone a chance to listen to what I do. It was an extremely fun project to work on with Asheville, NC legend, producer/musician Chris Rosser. We had musical help from Josh Lamkin, Julie Loyd, and Julie Couch of the Laura Blackley Band. Half of the CD is just me and my guitar and the other half is layered with simple drum/percussion, bass, guitar, and vocal tracks. Many of the songs are from my early years of songwriting and some were written right before the CD project began and right after I discovered the wonders of open tunings. A second CD is in the works. Check back soon.
