Album 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 touring in the midwest and on the east coast supporting "Radiator", her sophomore release.

"Brianna Lane sings her songs with a lovely melancholy, almost as if she were apologizing for her angst-filled songs of sadness and lost love. Her acoustic guitar gently weeps through almost a dozen indie-rock tunes, wandering through an introspective depression while maintaining a brave face all the same.
For example, on Sad Songs she sings
"you listen to sad songs too much, and it shows, your heart's been broken one too many times," almost as if she needs to explain why her songs are, indeed, sad. Depressing, or no, 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."
-MishMash (

"Brianna Lane is a songwriter in the truest form. With her acoustic guitar by her side and her hushed, cozy voice, she creates incredible stories and infectious melodies.
On Radiator, Lane's second full-length album, she's rocketing toward making a name for herself. Her music is decidedly folk, but consistently holds hands with country and rock styles, but never strays too far on either side. Fans of Dar Williams will not be disappointed. Womenfolk is proud to introduce the fourth in its This Woman's Work series with the inclusion of Brianna Lane."

to write a review

It's fresh music and definitely worth a listen.
I just got it, and I've got at least five favorite songs already! (I've bought some CDs only to find one good song.) Radiator delivers. The production quality is very good also.

Buy it. Own it. Love It.
Simply brilliant. One of the best records released by anyone last year. Brianna turns lyrical phrases beautifully, and the vocal delivery is superb; airy and a little dirty at the same time, her voice is distinctive and infectious. Solid guitar playing, and a batch of tunes that hit the sweet spot, not only as individual compositions, but as a cohesive collection. This record has a definite vibe, a palpable ebb and flow, and the journey is such a pleasant one that I'll probably be back here to buy another copy in about a year when I wear this one out from playing it non-stop for days on end. Also kudos to the oustanding backing band for playing their butts off and creating wonderfully evocative textures and settings for the songs. I won't get into specific tracks because they're all too good to pick and choose, the bottom line is if you like music even a little, you need this record.


An absolute gem
Radiator is an absolute gem.Brianna is a wordsmith and her songs are incredibly visual.The playing is superb and that voice!!!One of my favorite albums of the year


Brianna's work is personal yet inviting. Her songs are heartfelt stories we can all relate to.

he moment you press play, Brainna Lane's breathy-yet-firm delivery, breezy melodies, and winsome guitar picking will certainly evoke warm memories of Lilith Fair era icons Lisa Loeb, Mary Lou Lord, and perhaps Juliana Hatfield. But that's not to say she's a retro folkie or a softie either. "Radiator," her sophomore effort, is a mostly mellow affair bolstered by sinewy, understated arrangements, cinematic lyrics, and razor sharp musicianship. Produced and mixed by bassist / keyboardist Evan Brubaker, the album also boasts a panoramic live-in-the-studio mix, with acoustic guitars sounding rich and full, Joel Litwin's crackling drums resonating from speaker to speaker, and Lane's vocals dead center. Though her music is steeped in the contemporary folk ethos of confessional story telling, Lane and company keep it interesting. "Wrong Hands," a galloping country rocker which could have set comfortably on an old Lee Hazelwood / Nancy Sinatra record, is the stuff of spaghetti westerns as the singer bemoans that she's "spooning in this big bead / can't get to sleep / 'cause I'm in the wrong hands." (Note to artist: this is a scintillating music video screenplay in waiting.) Brubaker purveys a retro Al Kooper-ish organ foundation for the infectious mid-tempo rocker "Sad Songs," which is further embellished with subdued yet crunchy guitar licks. Lane's tender solo flight "Man In The Moon" is made even more haunting by her brief legato, a capella passages. And Lane pours on the hooks in "The Good Guys" a song of a single mother and only child, as well as in and the opening cut "Downpour," which excels by way of its menacing, repetitive guitar riffs abetted by Jonathan Klingman's distorted power chords. The record concludes with the stark, desolate "Bullets," a cut brimming with distant, minimalist piano lines which underpin the libretto "baby get your gun / I'm ready to fight tonight / I just might have a bullet of a song to make you cry." Now if that's not laying down a gauntlet, I don't know what is...
