Brandon Lynn Shane Bio
Brandon Lynn Shane knows country music. Whether he's performing for this fans, writing songs, or producing the latest indie country music artists, he conveys the heart and soul of country music. His music is modern and current, but he hasn't abandoned the sounds and traditions of country music to chase the latest fads.
Brandon was raised in Texas, which influenced him greatly. Not only did the Texas music sound affect the music he created, but he also learned about country music from his father, Bob, who played in a country music band. Brandon followed in his father's footsteps, performing in bands and touring the nation. He became a seasoned stage veteran touring with or opening for several artists and bands including the Colt band out of Dallas, TX, Johnny Bush, Tony Booth, Hank Thompson, David Frizzell and Shelly West, Johnny Rodriquez, Ray Price, Ernest Tubb, Darrell McCall, John Wesley Ryles, Restless Heart, Travis Tritt, Larry Butler, Mel McDaniels, The Mason Dixon Band, John Anderson, Steve Wariner, Kenny Dale, Tanya Tucker, Fiddlin Frenchie Burke, and Red Stegall.

Brandon is a prolific songwriter, having written thousands of songs in various styles including country (traditional and new), Gospel, and western swing.

He regularly appears at writers venues like The Hall of Fame Club, The Sutlers, The French Quarter Café, and the Broken Spoke.

After a recent SHOWCASE in Nashville Tennessee, these were the reviews:
Margie Cumbie, Artist
"Brandon Lynn Shane has an amazing gift. He hears things a little differently. He crafts his music in such a way that you feel like he as a special secret he's going to share with you in the end and when he does, you are never disappointed. Brandon is a dear friend and we share a deep rooted bond in our music. I have been blessed to sing and record some of his songs, and I look forward to more in the future"
Keven Kathey, Musician, Producer
"As the drummer for the Chart Reading SumBitches, I've had the opportunity to peform with a vast array of artists/songwriters. Brandon's showcase performance was quite a pleasant surprise. From the moment Brandon took the stage, it was delightfully apparent that this was not Brandon's first rodeo. Brandon's onstage patter established an immediate rapport with the audience as he skillfully took them on a musical journey of well crafted songs. Brandon's vocal quality, muscianship, stage presence and songcrafting abilities are what most people in the business call "the complete package".
John T. Mills, JTM Promotions:
"Concerning Brandon’s performance a few weeks past at the French Quarter Cafe' in Nashville: Brandon Shane gave a most exhilarating performance. While certainly a proficient songwriter, I was pleased and somewhat surprised by his vocal capabilities as well. Altho many in the crowd that Tuesday evening (and the venue was quite filled), were friends, aquaintances or proteges, etc, there were quests like myself that had not witnessed Brandon in a live setting. Very impressive!".
"Obviously, Brandon Lynn Shane is one of Nashville’s better kept secrets. I have (and continue to do so) attended hundreds of songwriter venues in the city. Actually, I include songwriting portions in festivals of which I coordinate the entertainment. Brandon is as talented as any out there. He has an ongoing invitation to perform at any such events that I am connected with in the future. Furthermore, I believe that we will one day soon, witness one or more of Brandon’s writings reap an award.. GOLD OR PLATINUM!!
TERRI LYNN, Artist, Writer, Writers Night Host:
"I have had the pleasure on several occasions to see and hear Brandon Lynn Shane perform. From the moment he took stage each time, Brandon easily held the audience in the palm of his hand. Add his performance with the fact that his songwriting abilities are major league and you have a show not to be missed.
MIRROR IMAGE RECORDS, NASHVILLE
Currently, MIRROR IMAGE RECORDS is a “dead” label… meaning it’s sole purpose is utilized for artists in need of a label for airplay. Radio stations WILL NOT play artist solicitations without a registered label listed on their CD. (With the growth of INTERNET radio stations, and pressure from the three major licensing agencies, most of these stations require that the submissions show a label listed as well.)
Additionally, MIRROR IMAGE certifies that if the artist has recorded a “cover” tune, the proper mechanical rights have been secured on all “cover” material prior to solicitation/submission. MIRROR IMAGE will NOT promote unlicensed material!!
In late 2007, MIRROR IMAGE RECORDS will be accepting artists for the worldwide distribution of its “compilation” CD series. The series will continue in 2008 with 6 releases (one every two months). These “comp” CD’s will be distributed to roughly 300 am/fm stations that WILL play “indie” artist, as well as roughly 1000 internet stations.

MIRROR IMAGE PRODUCTIONS, NASHVILLE
Brandon Lynn Shane, Producer
MIRROR IMAGE PRODUCTIONS is a full service resource center for recording sessions. Each session is professionally produced by “indie” hit maker Brandon Lynn Shane, a 35 year veteran in the music industry!
ARTIST SESSIONS: If the artist writes their own material, each song is carefully reviewed for it’s marketability. If the artist is NOT a writer, or doesn’t have material, we put the artist out to top writers in the country. We receive solicitations DAILY and carefully work with each artist to insure that each song is within the vocal capability of the artist, and that the artist can “relate” to the material they are recording!!
Once the song selection has been made, a basic arrangement is done to lay out the ground work for the first segment of recording. After completion of the rhythm section tracks, the appropriate instruments are added. Then the artist is brought in to lay the master vocal tracks. Once that is completed, backup vocals are added. When all of the tracks have been completed, the session goes into mixing, which takes 7-10 days. From there it heads to mastering, which takes an additional week or so to complete. From start to finish, the entire project usually take 2 months to complete!!!!!
WRITER DEMO SESSIONS: We offer a wide range of demo’s for writers and can fit almost any budget. From simple acoustic demo’s with a male or female vocal (with or without b/u vocals) to full blown instrumentation, we have what it takes to make YOUR song acceptable for solicitation to ANYONE on music row!!
OUR PICKERS: When it comes to the guys (and gals) working on your session… they are the CREAM OF THE CROP !! Individually, our players have worked on TOP COUNTRY ARTISTS sessions, including but not limited to RECENT sessions for DOLLY PARTON, TRACEY LAWRENCE, JO DEE MESSINA, TRACY BYRD, SHANIA TWAIN, DARYL SINGLETARY, ALLISON KROUSE, RICKY SCAGGS to name a few !!!!!
