Live Music: Brittany Shane

 

Brittany Shane is an Austin based songwriter who got her start performing at The Fillmore in San Francisco while playing acoustic in the Poster Room before acts such as The Wallflowers, Aimee Mann, Chris Isaak and Natalie Merchant graced the main stage. Her first album, “Decked Out” was named one of the Top 10 Local Albums by the San Francisco Chronicle. After the release of her 2nd album, "Have Heart Live Young", she opened for Heart, Foreigner and Peter Frampton at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA.

She also found success in music placement.  Several of the songs on "Decked Out" and "Have Heart Live Young" provide much of the score to the multi-award winning indie film, The Village Barbershop, starring John Ratzenberger, (Cliff Clavin from Cheers) and Shelly Cole (Gilmore Girls). The film, called “warm, humorous and ingratiating” by Variety, was released nationally in cinemas in 2009 and on Showtime in 2010.

Shane's TV placements include:  A national Hyundai commercial (2008), Bad Girls Club (Oxygen Channel) (2008), Living Lohan (Oxygen Channel) (2008) , Parking Wars (A&E) (2009), "Daytripper" (PBS) (2013), ”After Happily Ever After" (PBS) (2013), and “Rizzoli & Isles” (TNT) (2014).

Shane recently moved to Austin,Texas and very quickly found some good music company.  Her new album album, "Loud Nights On A Short String" was produced by Austin music greats Scrappy Jud Newcomb (Ray Wylie Hubbard, Ian McLagan and The Bump Band) and George Reiff (Joe Walsh, Courtyard Hounds, Susan Tedeschi) who also played guitar and bass on the CD along with Dony Wynn (Robert Plant) on drums.
