Laura Lane grew up in a farming community on the outskirts of Corinth, Mississippi. From an early age, she was surrounded by music and early on discovered her love of singing. Early inspirations and influences included a diverse group of artists, including Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, Tanya Tucker, Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles. At age 8, she learned to play the piano from her grandmother; she began formal training in classical piano at age 9 and continued until graduating high school. Throughout school, music was a large part of her life as she was in a country band, music classes and the high school marching band. Upon graduation, she attended college, graduating from the University of Mississippi in 1993. Studies and life responsibilities placed music on the back burner and it became just a hobby. Laura is proud mom to a grown son, John, and a energetic Australian Shepherd, Remi.
In January 2015, Laura was in an automobile accident and sustained a traumatic brain injury. Throughout her recovery and rehabilitation, music played a vital role. Having experienced firsthand how fragile life is, reignited her passion for music and she rededicated herself to singing and performing.
Laura Lane brings a unique blend of country, blues, soul and rock to her live shows with an emotional depth that can only be acquired from years of love, loss, joy and heartbreak
