ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Following the release of her 2015 “lyrical and musical masterpiece” (No Depression), Traveling Light, alt-Americana singer-songwriter Lana McMullen is setting the stage for her sophomore release with a beautifully stripped-down single, “Friend of Mine.”

Described as an artist “who stands above a breadth and depth of artistic substance that is hard to ignore” (FTCR), Lana McMullen courageously explores controversial subjects such as loss, domestic violence, and religion in her work. Her complex narratives have been praised as “a go-to for those who find music to be the ultimate space for healing and escape.” And her newest single is no exception.

Thematically, “Friend of Mine” features the songwriter in conversation with her younger self – confronting her father’s sudden death, her battle with depression, and her decision to “make nice with her memories,” or, grow with grief instead of letting it overcome her. Throughout the introspective piece, the former classical singer’s voice is haunting and subdued - reminding the listener that they are being told a secret. McMullen's narrative-driven songwriting is vivid and honest, while her finger picking, which serves as the piece's rhythmic and harmonic backbone, gives a nod to finger style guitarists such such as Elliott Smith and The Tallest Man on Earth.

The single represents a continuation of McMullen's work with Seattle producer and multi-instrumentalist Kevin Veatch (Ryan Lewis, Kate Lynn Logan, Zach Fleury).
