SEEKINGAcoustic Guitar, Rhythm Guitar, Vocalist.
Hey, I'm Alana (Lani), I'm a mezzo soprano with a soulful flavour. I love all kinds of music but more drawn towards soul and r&b. I'm very much inspired by the musical and lyrical styles of Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Nicks and other strong female vocalists and feel that my own style has developed through drawing on their beautifully diverse sounds.
My voice is quite versatile and I still feel that I am discovering different ways of using it. I'm loving the process!
I've been gigging in the inner west for the past 6 years and have been in a variety of cover bands. I used to play weekly at the Hard Rock Cafe in a trio where I was the lead vocalist accompanied by a guitar, cajon and harmonica. I was also the lead vocalist in a cover band in Sydney for 2 years and played clubs, pubs, corporate functions, house parties etc. I would love to get back into this scene as I feel I am totally in my element on stage and love getting a crowd going! Weddings are something I'd love to play and has always been a dream.
I also have a lot of lyrics that I've written over the years so if you've got an original project that you need lyrics for, we could collaborate with this also :)
P.S check out the tracks from Red Clover on Spotify, this is a more recent recording :)
