Live music at Solaro Estate 3-5pm July 6th Tracie Lynn is a rarity in country music these days, a country artist that actually grew up in the country. Born and raised in South Texas, Tracie drinks Lone Star Beer out of a longneck bottle, drives a pickup truck and you have to just love a Texas Girl that named her own independent record label Bird Dog Records. Girl Talk was the debut album release that garnered critical acclaim for Tracie and her music. She combines a traditional country voice with a modern country style that is both genuine and unique at the same time. Her brilliant songwriting features witty lyrics and melodies that you just can’t get out of your head, along with a creativity not found in country music in quite some time, all of which meld together to reveal Tracie’s heart and “Tongue-In-Cheek” sense of humor to provide the perfect musical backdrop to display Tracie’s unique talent.

Brittany Shane’s fifth album, “Loud Nights On A Short String” on Painted Lady Records was recently released in Austin, TX. The album was recorded in 11 days during the extra-hot Summer of 2011 at The Finishing School in Austin, Texas. George Reiff (Court Yard Hounds) played bass, Scrappy Jud Newcomb (Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan & The Bump Band) played guitar, Dony Wynn (Robert Palmer) played drums, and Johnny Goudie (Skyrocket) played keyboards. George and Scrappy also co-produced the album. Brittany grew up in the small town of Baraboo, Wisconsin, discovered her love for performing dance at the tender age of two and a half, and started making music while attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Brittany’s first two albums were released in Madison under her maiden name, Safranek. Once Brittany felt that she had reached as far as she could go with her music in Madison (released two CDs, “Out of the Everywhere” and “Moravian Star”, voted Best Live Female Singer/Songwriter in 2000 by Maximum Ink), she decided to move to California, “where rock ‘n roll dreams come true”. Brittany sold one of her guitars for a one-way ticket and an opportunity that landed her in San Francisco. She got her start performing in the Fillmore Lounge in 2001 in San Francisco, playing along acts such as Aimee Mann, Chris Isaak, Travis, Liz Phair and many more. In 2003, after a few years in San Francisco, Brittany (now Shane) released her third album, “Decked Out”, which was voted Top 20 Local CDs by Aidin Vaziri, San Francisco Chronicle Music Critic. For the next few years, Brittany found success in music placements in both film, TV:
