Ryan Bingham knows a thing or two about pain. He learned the emotional aspect early in life, when shuttling between small towns and family members in the hardscrabble ranching communities of West Texas and New Mexico -- and became well-acquainted with the physical facets during his years on the Southwestern rodeo circuit.
That ache is palpable in the grooves of Mescalito, Ryan Bingham's Lost Highway debut, but what's even more plain is the steely strength needed to overcome it -- a tenor that's evident in both the singer-songwriter's preternaturally wizened voice and his remarkably poignant songs, which resonate with roadhouse wisdom and rough-and-ready border-town piquancy.
Nikki Lane's 2014 release All Or Nothin’ sees Lane teaming up with some of the finest musicians and songwriters in Nashville to craft an album that fully realizes her musical vision. Produced by Auerbach, who Lane met at her pop-up vintage clothing stall when he wanted to buy the 1940s hunting jacket she was wearing, the rousing collection of songs spans genres and eras and exudes with Lane's characteristic attitude and Southern swagger. “I wrote with so many amazing musicians on this album but Dan was really instrumental in helping me figure out the direction we were going for,” Lane says.
Over 12 tracks, Lane sings tales about misbehaving, wanton desires, heartache, love and lust. "It's always the right time to do the wrong thing," she repeats like a mantra during the infectious opener "Right Time" and that statement defines All Or Nothin' as good as anything will. “I really consider this album to be a Nikki Lane mixtape of my thoughts and the sounds that I’m into so that’s why you can’t put it in a neat box,” Lane says. From the whimsical, dreamy sensation of “I Don’t Care” to the stripped-down acoustic duet with Auerbach, “Love’s On Fire,” to the plaintive ballad “Out of My Mind,” written with former touring partner J. Spaceman of Spiritualized and the woozy, blue- eyed soul of the title track, the album showcases the many sides of Lane and her diverse influences.
Lane’s passion for music is only matched by her passion for fashion, evident from her album cover, which features her decked out in a white fringe dress and gold cape, to her impeccable stage outfits – vintage embrodiered shirts, boots, western attire, and leather motorcycle jackets. The born entrepenuer has parlayed her penchant and knowledge for the clothes of yesteryear into a successful business she calls High Class Hillbilly, a vintage clothing stall she takes around Nashville and out on tour with her, fueling the enterprise with pieces she collects on the road. In addition to selling her own wares, the style maven is highly sought after by clothing and accessory brands; she has worked with Warby Parker, Frye Boots, Minnetonka Moccasins, Billy Reid, TOMS and most recently Vans.
Armed with a compelling album and her fiery personality, Lane has had a breakout year. Just one of the many reasons why CMT singled her out for thier “Next Women of Country” campaign, putting her in the same company as 2013’s artists Kacey Musgraves and Brandy Clark.
