Briana Renea comes by her country roots naturally, growing up in the heart of the Pacifi c Northwest on a rural farm in Canby, Oregon. She released her EP “Red Lips White Lies” in 2015, a collaborate on with great Nashville writers Cort Carpenter, Jason Wyatt and Tony George. Her original songs are about real life experiences. “Dirt Side” talks about her country roots—growing up on a farm and playing in the dirt “Red Lips, White Lies” was inspired by a road trip with her twin brother sharing about all the “crazies” he dated. Eight es rock and Nineties country greatly influenced her musical style. It is only natural that she blurs the line between rock and country.
Her hard work is paying off by having her new single and title track of her forth-coming album, “Chasin’ Trouble” placed in the Top 40 for the Nashville Songwriters Association on International’s (NSAI) second quarter of 2016. Off of her first EP “Red Lips White Lies” her song “Dirt Side” was chosen for the top 12 Best of NSAI Spring Training award. Most recently, her new bull riding single “Widow Maker”, was selected for use in the Northwest Pro Rodeo Association finals commercial. Briana has been blessed to work with a wonderful and experienced group of writers. Songwriters like Steve Mitchell, Dee Briggs, Mason Douglas and Jason Wyatt have helped shape and guide her music.
You can’t miss red haired Briana’s high-energy when she performs. She has traveled and entertained country fans throughout the Northwest, and shared the stage with notable acts such as Joe Nichols, Old Dominion, Canaan Smith and Sammy Kershaw. When she’s not playing music you will find her embracing her dirt side, showing horses in the Western States Stock Horse Association, swing dancing and hanging out with friends and family.
