Rising newcomer Olivia Lane shined at the 93rd Annual New York Stock Exchange Tree Lighting on Thursday (12/1) as she performed a vivacious four-song set, including “Lightning,” “Make My Own Sunshine,” “My Heartbreak” and her holiday single, the Brenda Lee classic, “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.” All of the songs are featured on her deluxe self-titled EP, available now. National radio personality Trey Morgan emceed the event, which also included performances by The Radio City Rockettes, 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons, Santa Claus and a special appearance by supermodel and entrepreneur Christie Brinkley.
Lane’s deluxe edition of her self-titled EP, produced by GRAMMY-nominated musician and 2015 Academy of Country Music’s (ACM) “Studio Recording Award” honoree Ilya Toshinskiy, has been well-received by media and fans alike with Taste of Country naming the Texas native “Country’s queen of righteous heartbreak songs” and Rolling Stone noting here as an artist “who leads with her sass and robust voice.” The talented singer-songwriter has writing credits on seven of the nine songs on the project.
With the early success of the “She Fits” tour contest, Lane recently told The Boot she is gearing up to “connect one-on-one with fans and try out new music” for what is sure to be an “intimate gathering.” Fans can still enter to win a house party from the charismatic singer herself right in their own living room or backyard.
Known for her effervescent personality and powerhouse vocals, Lane has been selected for iTunes Country New Artist Spotlight, named an Entertainment Weekly “Breaking Big” artist, featured as one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” and spotlighted in CMT’s Listen Up Music Discovery Program. The fresh-faced newcomer has been immersed in the craft and tradition of Country music since she was a little girl, eager to follow in the footsteps of her mother who was a Country singer. In college at USC, she honed her calling studying music, songwriting and acting. Immediately upon graduation, Lane moved to Nashville to pursue her lifelong dream of a career in Country music.
OLIVIA LANE (Deluxe Edition) is available here.
