At just 16 years old Mikayla Lane’s music is grabbing the attention of her industry peers and propelling her to tour around the States as her fanbase grows.
‘Miles From Nowhere’ is authentic country music, from the instrumentation and production to the compelling stories her lyrics tell, whilst all the while her melodies grab your attention and keep you hanging on every clever word she’s crafted. The standout track is the beautiful Wild Like The Wind. Inspired by Lane’s involvement in the rodeo, her voice sores through her range as the chorus shows off the powerful nature of her young voice as she paints the scene with her words; “One day here, next he’s gone, blows in with the sunset, out before dawn.”
Meanwhile, Coming Home, with it’s haunting slide guitar addresses Lane’s youth and sacrifice for her craft as she “I spend most nights on a stage with a good song, and all these strangers come a hundred miles just to sing along, how could it ever be wrong?” Her observations and evaluations of her own career and emotions show Lane is wise beyond her years. Along with co-writer John Conrad, Lane has crafted some wonderful lines throughout the four song collection.
Reminiscent of early Taylor Swift, the sky’s the limit for Lane who has a very bright future ahead.
