Singles Out Now
THIS IS ME
Winner of the Americana/Roots category for the 2019 Westword Music Awards.
Americana singer-songwriter Brianna Straut conveys the human condition through empathetic storytelling.
Born and raised in Texas, Brianna sings from her roots, incorporating lamentations of lost love and soaring moments of hanging on to the good times into her bittersweet folk tunes. She’s been a member of Denver-based Americana outfits such as Bison Bone and Tomahawk Fox. More recently, Brianna has branched out on her own as a singer-songwriter with a voice that is as proud as the Rocky Mountains she now calls home.
Her latest release, La Mano is the first in a series of three albums inspired by the hands of her community. Marquee Magazine has described it as “... the hard, chapped and cracked withered hands of modern working-class Americana — coupled, of course, with Straut’s beautiful, soaring voice.”
Brianna has opened for artists such as Lillie Mae, Son Volt and Israel Nash. She’s been compared to Lori McKenna in a recent write up by 303 Magazine in which they write, “[T]here is something about a girl and a guitar that can tug at those heartstrings. Straut pulls from her personal experiences to really give her songs a deep sense of emotion that listeners can empathize with regardless of their own personal experiences.”
Brianna has been touring the country promoting her new album and gaining experience to write into her next.
