Texas Boy


Brittany Shane plays the Becker Vineyards Lavender Festival October 16 and releases new single “Texas Boy”

Austin singer-songwriter Brittany Shane will release her latest single “Texas Boy” on Saturday, October 16th, the same day she performs at Becker Vineyards for the Becker Lavender Festival in Fredericksburg, Texas. The annual event runs from 10am-6pm and includes vendors, food, wine and live music. The sweet, heartfelt song was inspired by Shane’s 5 year old son Oliver and the experience of watching him grow and knowing one day he would be an adult and might move away. It’s a reminder of the precious memories they shared and that he will always have a home with her here in Texas, no matter what.

The song “Texas Boy” was recorded at Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberly, TX and produced by Josh Center (David Cook, Zac Maloy) who also plays drums on the song. Electric guitar, keys and mixed by David Percefull (Meat Puppets, Green Day, Gary Clark Jr.), Acoustic Guitar by Colton King, Upright bass and Engineering by Casey Johns (Garret Bryant Band), back up vocals by J. Meridian and Mastering by Adam Odor (Mike & The Moonpies).

Right out of the gate as a college student in Wisconsin, Brittany Shane was grabbing rave reviews left and right, including “Best Female Vocalist” honors from Maximum Ink Magazine and Wisconsin State Journal. After two well received albums released under her maiden name (Safranek), the Americana singer-songwriter pawned a guitar to make the move to San Francisco and quickly became a staple at the Fillmore while sharing the stage with the likes of Aimee Mann, Chris Isaak, Travis, Heart, Peter Frampton and Liz Phair. After another album which would land on the San Francisco Chronicle’s Top 20 List for the year, Shane found success beyond the stage, her songs receiving placements in film, television and commercials, including Hyundai, Oxygen, PBS, A&E and more.

Having fallen in love with Austin while on tour, Shane’s next move brought her to the Lone Star state where she discovered legendary guitar virtuoso Scrappy Jud Newcomb (Ian McLagan, Stephen Bruton, John Dee Graham) at the Continental Club. The two joined forces on Shane’s 5th studio album, Loud Nights on a Short String. Since then, Shane has become a mother and launched My Music Day, a program that teaches preschool age children music skills. And yet she still found time to release 2018’s self titled album, which was recorded at Resonate (Nada Surf, The New Pornographers) in Austin and mastered by Alex Lyon at The Bubble (Gary Clark Jr, The Dandy Warhols, Jet). The album was co-produced by longtime friend Jeff Byrd (Spoon, Explosions in the Sky, Iron and Wine) and Shane herself and featured an impressive studio ensemble, including Brad Rice on lead guitar (Son Volt, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Keith Urban) and Michael Tarabay on bass (Pat Green, Chris Cage, Bodeans).

While her past albums have mainly dealt with the themes of love, loss and strength, Shane’s sixth full length features a new major inspiration- her young son Oliver. “Where’s The Moon?” simmers with honeyed visions of childhood innocence and “Texas Boy” is a smile-inducing lullaby, brimming with love for a child and an adopted home state. Shane’s sweet and clear melodies shine throughout a collection of songs that begs to be heard through headphones. Look for her new album due on early 2021.

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
No where 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
