Here are some stand out comments and quotes I’ve received both recently and over the years. Check back for future media article links and more fan quotes.
"One of the best tracks on this album is “Aftermath,” a duet with Dave Carroll, telling a story of tension between a husband and a wife whose love has run dry. “There’s only a few feet between us/why does it seem like miles/it didn’t used to.” There’s a wonderful atmosphere to this song, and Lana and Dave have great chemistry. Easily a radio hit, “Aftermath” oozes style, good songwriting, and a touching sentiment. This is the best track on the album."(Music Writer/Publisher: Bobby Jo Valentine from California, USA) - Related to Lana's new CD "non fiction"."Grant then takes a beautiful, sentimental turn in “My Journey.” “Like the rings inside a fresh-cut tree/the lines mark the moments in my journey.” Beautiful songwriting, an absolutely show-stopping guitar solo in the middle, and a great piano track compliment the raw lyrics and vocals that will make this track a fan favorite."(Music Writer/Publisher: Bobby Jo Valentine from California, USA) - Related to Lana's new CD "non fiction"."One of the most meaningful and heartfelt tracks here is "Time,” which describes one of Grant’s fan’s battle with breast cancer. A simple acoustic guitar accompanies Grant's vocals, and there's something in her voice that creates a genuine connection with the listener and the subject matter. Lyrics like "Please just give me some time for the moments I took for granted before. Please just give me sometime to live some more" are an example of the unvarnished truth of the matter that hits close to home with so many listeners.(Music Writer/Publisher: Alexa Spieler from New York) - Related to Lana's new CD "non fiction".Prepare for Lana Grant to become a household name.
