Written by June 21st, 2011 at 10:19 am

Grab yourself a cold beverage and spend a little time on Carl’s Country Club’s front porch. That’s where you’ll find songstress Nikki Lane jamming with Luke Winslow-King, singer-songwriter Carey Kotsionis and Calexico’s Paul Niehaus. The ad hoc band perform “Look Away,” from her upcoming full-ength album.

They’re all stories,” says Lane of her country-inflected tunes, which are inspired in part by Waylon Jennings, Loretta Lynn, John Prine and Merle Haggard. “That’s the only way I know how to write. All my songs have a beginning middle and an end. I want to tell you what happened to this person and what the result was.”
