Bitten by the Music Bug w/ Brittin Lane

Featuring

Let’s get to know more about up and comer Brittin Lane who was bitten by the music bug at and early age and hasn’t stopped since.

 

SB (StarBeat): From the Starting Line: How did you get your start in the music world?

BL (Brittin Lane): Music has been a big part of my life from the start. When I was three years old, my grandma bought a small $15 keyboard at a yard sale and gave it to my sister and I. Soon after that, I started sounding out TV show theme songs on the keyboard.

Since then, I’ve played piano by ear and can’t read a bit of sheet music. I picked up the guitar around six years old, wrote my first song when I was ten, and started singing a couple of years after that.

SB: Life’s Path: How has your musical journey been like so far?

BL: It’s been crazy at times, and I’ve enjoyed every single moment of it. I uploaded my first cover to YouTube around three years ago of “Struggling Man” by Jimmy Cliff. After it got a few thousand views, I began uploading a new cover every week. In May of 2016, I wrote, recorded, and released my first EP called “The Letter” and a few months after that, I signed a record deal with Triple Double Records. Since then, we’ve reached around seven million plays on Spotify, which is insane! It’s been very exciting because I never know what’s around the corner, or what opportunities God has in store.

It feels like each new door that opens continues to top the last one, and when I think it can’t get better, it does somehow.

 

Brittin LaneSB: Stand Out: How you do you aim to set yourself apart from other artists?

BL: As far as my original music goes, I try to keep it as organic and as vulnerable as I can. I want my lyrics to mean something, and I want to create music that anyone can relate to regardless of their age. It’s important to me that each song has a message worth sharing, or a story worth telling; one that every listener can connect to. For instance, after I released one of my first songs called “Goodbye,” I received a ton of messages from friends and strangers who shared their stories with me, and said the song helped them remember a time they had to say goodbye to someone they loved.

I love it when people share their stories with me, and tell me that something I wrote made them feel a certain way. Its the ultimate compliment in my opinion.

 

SB: What’s Inside: Where do you get inspiration for your own music?

BL: Sometimes, inspiration is very easy to find, and a song will almost write itself in a matter of minutes. Other times, it’s much harder to find and it can take a few days, or even a few weeks for me to finish writing a song. I typically focus on a certain experiences from my life, or I think about a message that I want to share with others, and I’ll use that as a starting point.

 

SB: Pageant Questions: What superpower would you like to have?

BL: Probably either the ability to turn invisible, or telekinesis. It would be very useful to be able to control things with your mind!
