If there’s one thing that stands out about emerging country artist Olivia Lane, it’s her pure, unbridled energy. It’s reflected in her big, dynamic voice; in her performance, which bursts with passion and levity; and by her simple presence, which can instantly boost your mood. Not every day does an artist come around able to so effortlessly meld a freewheeling spirit with poignant, inspirational songs and an irrepressible drive, but Lane’s one of them.

The native Texan’s big voice has drawn comparisons to country music mavens Jennifer Nettles and Sara Evans. Lane’s sound is a combination of traditional country elements – mandolin, banjo, lyrics sweetly laced with Texas twang – with a twist of pop energy and locomotive rhythms that capture her lively spirit.
“Country music, everyone has their own definition,” she says. “For me, it’s a lifestyle and it’s true lyrics. If you’re writing something that’s true to you then that’s country. How I grew up, my lifestyle and stories – that’s number one to me. Stories are everything.”
And certainly, Lane’s always collecting stories. From her adventures on the road, to life in Nashville, to writing songs with the city’s top talent, she’s always on the lookout for life experiences to fuel a lyric and convey an attitude.
