Growing up in a small Texas town, Lainey remembers falling to sleep most nights to the sounds of her brothers’ guitars down the hall. She was very young when she began to get in on the action, and soon she began writing music. Click here to learn more about Lainey Wright.
It was on this road that she met San Antonio promoter/manager Greg Carnes. It was at this point that life as Lainey knew it began to change, not slowly, but by leaps and bounds.
“I can’t get her songs out of my head,” said Paul Colman, (The Paul Colman Trio, The Newsboys) who has produced Lainey’s debut project. “If they were about nothing, I’d be furious. But seeing as these catchy tunes are loaded with poetry and spiritual yearning, they’re like prayers”. It would seem that Paul has pulled out all the stops for this project, bringing in some of the most talented names to put their mark on the record. Among them Steve Mason and Dan Haseltine of Jars of Clay. The result is a record that is refreshingly unique,earthy and organic.
In 2010, Lainey played opening slots for some of Christian music’s most beloved artists. Among them, Leeland, JJ Heller, Casting Crowns and Paul Colman. Time will tell what comes next for this young artist. If this project is any indication, 2011 will be a year to remember. “Traveler” was just released this May of 2011 and fans are reacting everywhere and this is only the beginning.
“ So, I don’t know where this music will go or whose ears it will reach, and I try hard to have no expectations other than knowing God will use this music—the music that He is so present in—for his glory”.
So, Lainey is just Lainey.
God gave her this life, indeed. And ride, it seems, she will.
