Briana Renea comes by her country roots naturally. The 25-year-old reigns from Canby, Oregon in the heart of the Pacific Northwest.
Her musical style was greatly influenced by her childhood growing up on 80s rock and 90s country. Briana blends the two genres in her own musical compositions and live performances. Since launching her touring career (2013), Briana has become a must-see, fan favorite at fairs, festivals and venues throughout the Northwest where she’s shared the stage with notable country recording artists such as Joe Nichols, Old Dominion, Canaan Smith, Love and Theft, Diamond Rio, Sammy Kershaw, The Cadillac Three, Jackson Michaelson, The Gatlin Brothers.
The sophisticated, yet fiery, redhead has collaborated with Nashville writers and skilled producers to produce three albums. Her original songs are about real life experiences happening around her. Her song, “Dirt Side” talks about her country roots growing up playing in the dirt and living on a farm while showing horses, cattle and goats; the track earned a Top 12 Best of NSAI Spring Training Award. “Red Lips, White Lies” was inspired by a road trip with her twin brother, learning about all the “crazies” he dated. Her single titled “Widow Maker,” a tune about bull riding, was featured in the Northwest Pro Rodeo Association finals advertising. Her single, “Chasin’ Trouble” was placed in the Top 40 for the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s (NSAI) second quarter of 2016. Most recently the International Music and Entertainment Association (IMEA) recognized Briana’s talents with its “Country Female Artist Of The Year” award (2018).
She celebrated the release of her debut single, “Chasin’ Trouble,” in October 2018 that made it into the top 100 on the Music Row Charts. She followed up the single with a corresponding “Chasin’ Trouble” music video released in November of 2018. Her new single Maybe You Can Me My Man is set to debut August 30th.
You can’t miss Briana’s high-energy when she performs. 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.
