Holiday Letter

by Brittany Shane

 

He’s walking a fine line
As people drive on by
But don’t worry he’s the king of this mess
What is junk to one is another’s success

He’s now looking at you
Should you turn and run away?
If you can’t understand do you call for him moved?
Or get upset and demand it’s improved?

I will stand by you
Keep you warm with the things I do
To help you through
This Holiday Weather

Your fingers touch the glass
Frosted days are melting fast
You are home at last
In my Holiday Letter

There’s nothing to prove
You don’t have to leave your name
It’s the thought that counts
With intentions for good
If he was in your place
You sure knew he would….

I will stand by you
Keep you warm with the things I do
To help you through
This Holiday Weather

Your fingers touch the glass
Frosted days are melting fast
You are home at last
In my Holiday Letter

Texas Boy

 

Everybody’s out there
Everyone is on the loose
Long hair you don’t care
You’ll do what ever you choose

Someday you’ll run from the mountain to the sea
But you’ll always be a Texas boy to me

Sometimes you just stare
Floating off to the moon
An artist everywhere
Growing up way too soon

Someday you’ll run from the mountain to the sea
But you’ll always be a Texas boy to me

We’re going fast now
Summer water having fun
I’ve got you now pow
Nowhere to hide run

Someday you’ll run from the mountain to the sea
But you’ll always be a Texas boy to me

Someday stop stand still in the breeze ooh
But you’ll only see a home, home near me

Where’s the Moon?

 

Been a long long time
And I’ve been waiting for you
On a big, big boat
And I’ve been sailing on through

Catch a wave
Looking up
With a smile
And my arms are back

Think I’ll stay for awhile
Cause my backpacks packed
Oh don’t let me down

Where’s the moon?
Up above
And the stars
I’m looking up
Looking up

Where’s the Moon?
Up above
And the stars
I’m dreaming of
Dreaming of

The radio is on
And the lights are low
They tucked me in
But don’t know where I go

Should I tell
Would they believe
When I leave
I float through the night

And even if they could see
Would they need your light?
Oh don’t let me down

Where’s the moon?
Up above
And the stars
I’m looking up
Looking up

Where’s the Moon?
Up above
And the stars
I’m dreaming of
Dreaming of

Austin 360 – August 9, 2018, Peter Blackstock

Brittany Shane, self-titled EP. The Wisconsin native’s engaging vocals stand out on this six-song set of Americana-leaning pop and rock tunes that feature backing from prominent locals including guitarist Brad Rice, drummer Brian Ferguson and backing singer Noelle Hampton. Release show Aug. 12 at Central Market Westgate.

Maximum Ink – August 4, 2018

Supported by an able-bodied posse of seasoned players, steady, centered Baraboo native and Austin transplant Brittany Shane keeps a level-head, if just this side of a second wind, on her crackling new mini-album. A pleasant collection upon first listen and a rewarding restorative after many more, Brittany’s brave-face grace and double-down directness connects the half-dozen tracks into a rich song-cycle orbiting love’s push and pull. A singer-songwriter, dancer and Mom; all parts of Shane’s personality come together in this self-titled work with poise, discipline and affection apparent in every line. A beacon projecting calm resolve and soft-spoken strength, Shane’s patience reins in the crashing guitars, restless rhythms and runaway twang to make her sixth album a testament to taming wild hearts and reaping life’s rewards.

Baraboo native releases 6th album

Baraboo News Republic – August 1, 2018, Ben Bromley

As far as Brittany Shane is concerned, No. 6 is No. 1.

The musician who graduated from Baraboo High School in 1995 as Brittany Safranek has released her sixth album, self-titled using her stage name. She said it’s her best work yet. “It really captures me, my band and how I sound live,” Shane said.

“Brittany Shane” is available on iTunes, at amazon.com and at her own website, brittanyshane.com. She’s holding a release party Aug. 12 in her home of Austin, Texas. “The hard part is getting it into the hands of everyone,” Shane said.

The album has been in the works for five years, interrupted by the arrival of her son, Oliver. She wrote half the songs before his birth, the other half after. They address themes of love, loss and moving on with a rock ’n’ roll sound.

The Charleston (W.Va.) Daily Mail once said Shane “mixes the lilt of Stevie Nicks with the power of Sheryl Crow.” Shane got her start performing at the Memorial Union while attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She released her first two albums in Madison before selling one of her guitars for a one-way ticket to California. She started performing there, alongside such acts as Chris Isaak and Liz Phair, in 2001. By 2009 she was opening for Heart, Foreigner and Peter Frampton and playing an 80-city U.S. tour.

She found Austin was her favorite stop, as it reminded her of Madison. Shane visited Texas and decided to stay. Today she performs live every couple weeks, which means bearing 110-degree heat.“You have to be tough if you want to play music in Austin,” she said.
Shane’s songs have been used in several television shows, including a tune she wrote about her father Clem’s morning visits to the Alpine Café in Baraboo, which was featured on “Rizzoli & Isles” in 2014. Several of her songs provided much of the score of the independent film “The Village Barbershop” in 2010.

Away from the microphone, she spends her time caring for her 2-year-old son, who inspired her new hobby, writing children’s books. She said the rhyming, rhythmic wording of children’s books reminded her of writing songs. So she’s giving it a try. “It’s kind of an easy transition,” she said.

She and her husband strive to make annual visits to Baraboo. Her family played a key role in creating the album’s artwork, with her brother Dustin Safranek snapping photographs and her uncle Mike Grunder handling graphic design.

“I feel like it’s my best album yet,” she said.
