She wrote her second album titled All or Nothin which was released at New West Records on May 6,2014 which was produced by Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, Auerbach with his support he recorded the albums of nikki at his studio of Easy Eye Sound Studio for free.

He later recovered and returned to the band at the time of Highway Queens release. Unfortunately the former drummer Ben Eyestone passed away from colon cancer. He was the one who used to play drums for Nikki’s first two albums.

Nikki Lane Brooklyn

Nikki Lane performed in Brooklyn in the New West Records that combines sights and sounds of 70’s outlaw with relevant multiple genres. She is included in 20 Lanes of every track from the highway queens in addition of old songs that the Brooklyn fans had great idea of it. She made her career in pursuing fahsion inorder to be a full time musician. while she was at the Brooklyn corner she would party very late at night by being drunk execcessively befor getting home and penning songs. The fans cheered of as she recalled her hangouts, including her past performance in the Union Pool.

At the stage she wore her root fashion and going to th stage wearing nothing. Her outfit was a custom in embroiding jackpot suit in rolling dice, slots machine, six -shooters on her hips and the queens of hearts on her back. Her opening lane was Georgia-native Brent Cobb. Cobb set received a huge applause from Brooklyn fans, including her latest songs off his album, Shine On Rainy Day, South of Atlanta, Let the Rain Come Down, and Country Bound.

Nikki Lane said  that“Love is the most unavoidable thing in the world,”. “The person you pick could be half set-up to destroy your life with their own habits – I’ve certainly experienced that before and taken way too long to get out of that mistake.” In 2014, Lane’s second album All or Nothin’ (New West) solidified her sandpaper voice beneath a ten-gallon hat as the new sound and look of outlaw country music. Produced by Dan Auerbach, the record’s bluesy Western guitars paired with Lane’s Dusty Springfield-esque voice earned glowing reviews from NPR, the Guardian and Rolling Stone. In three years since her Walk of Shame debut, Lane said she was living most of the year on the road.

Growing up, Lane used to watch her father pave asphalt during blistering South Carolina summers. She’d sit on the roller (“what helps smooth out the asphalt”) next to a guy named Rooster and divvy out Hardee’s lunch orders for the workers. “My father thought he was a country singer,” Lane laughs. “He partied hard at night, but by 6:30 AM he was out on the roads in 100-degree weather.” That’s the southern work ethic, she says. “We didn’t have a lot of money, but I was privileged with the knowledge of how to work hard, how to learn and to succeed when things aren’t set up for me.” Creativity was an unthinkable luxury, she adds. “When people told me I should try to get a record deal for songs I was writing, I was like, ‘that’s cute – I’ve got to be at work at 10 A.M.’”

“Becoming a songwriter is one of the most selfish things I’ve ever done,” Lane says plainly. She describes writing her first song at age 25 like it was a necessary act of self-preservation after a devastating breakup. Many of her early songs, she said on Shame and Nothin’, were about the fleetingness of relationships she believed were permanent, she says. Lane’s main line of work in those days was a fashion entrepreneur (she’s currently the owner of Nashville’s vintage clothing boutique High Class Hillbilly). It brought her to cities around the country, New York to Los Angeles to Nashville. And like a true wanderer, Lane’s sound crisscrosses musical genres with ease, while the lonesome romantic in her remains. Even a soft song like, “Send The Sun,” with its lilting downward strum, is flush with bittersweet emotion. “Darling, we’re staring at the same moon,” Lane sings lovingly. “I used to say that to my ex,” she says with cheerful stoicism, “to try to brighten the long nights, stay positive.”

Highway Queen is poised to be Lane’s mainstream breakthrough. “Am I excited to spend years of my life in a van, away from family and friends? No, but I’m excited to share my songs, so they’ll reach people and help them get through whatever they’re going through. To me, that’s worth it.”

“Lay You Down” is one of those unexpected moments for Lane. “That song was inspired by something Levon Helm’s wife posted on Facebook when he was sick with cancer,” Lane says. “I was just so moved by her telling the world how much love he felt from people writing to them, and moved that because of the Internet, I was able to see that love – even from a distance.” The song became surreal for Lane and her band when her longtime guitarist, Alex Munoz, was diagnosed with cancer while they were playing it. “It deepened my perspective and the importance of keeping everyone safe,” says Lane.

On the record cover, Lane looks out on wide, unowned Texan plains, leaning on the fearsome horns of a massive steer. Wearing a vintage Victorian dress, the stark photo invokes a time before highways existed. The symbolism isn’t lost on Lane. Highway Queen was a pioneering moment for her as an artist. “I was always a smart girl, always had to yell to be heard,” she says, “But this was the first time in my career where I decided how things were going to go; I was willing to take the heat.” Lane included the bonus track “Champion” as a small testament to that empowerment. “It makes a point,” Lane says with a smile, “That I appreciate what you’re saying, but get the fuck out of my way.”

Nikki Lane Interview

Nikki Lane:  For our newest NoiseTrade One-on-One, we caught up with Outlaw country firebrand Nikki Lane during a rare “off the road” moment. Lane gave us the lowdown on her upcoming album Highway Queen (out next February on New West), how it stacks up against her earlier work, how vintage country fashion plays a role in her art, and what it was like to drive a monster truck for her latest music video.

Your new album Highway Queen (out 2/17 on New West) evokes an interesting geographical blending in its lyrics and musical styles. To what do you attribute its sprawling roots?

Nikki Lane: I guess it’s a byproduct of all the travel. We canvassed so much ground on this record and I believe it really took its toll on me. I can see some of the skepticism in my lyrics that comes from being worn down by the road and from the vulnerability that comes with this job. I can also see the growth that takes place when you go out and work the way we did. My musical influences have quadrupled having such a cool group of musicians in the band. My bass player Eric in particular is responsible for me having so many modern bands on my playlists these days. I’ve loved being able to draw from this era as much as I do from the past.

Recording sessions for Highway Queen took place in Denton, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee. Did both places end up playing different roles or providing different inspirations for the finished product?

Nikki Lane: Most definitely. Texas in itself changes the way I feel. My stress level drops so much when I am able to create outside of my hometown. The demands of being home were able to be put aside so that I could focus on making the best possible record. Playing with the young Texas guys helped me to develop a voice in the studio, which is something I hadn’t had the nerve to do until recently. However, I was craving some of that Nashville sound and wanted to make sure we got Colin Dupuis involved in the record again. He engineered All or Nothin’ and mixed this record. He also pulled the great players together who had worked on the last record to try a few last tracks, one of which is “Jackpot.” That one was deemed the single or the “hopeful hit” the second it was recorded.

The music video you recorded for the title track seems like it was a blast to shoot. Where’d the monster truck idea come from and how much fun did you have that day?

Nikki Lane: My father used to set his own monster truck up to roll over cars on a couple of holidays when I was a kid. He mainly used it for mud bogging. Then, one Fourth of July, he had our cousins bring over some cars from the junkyard and he ran them over for people in the town. Everyone just hooted and hollered. It’s been on the bucket list ever since. What’s crazy is that on the second time over the cars, we had seven of the people who work on my team in the cab with me. Space was so tight that one of the girls laid across four guys in the backseat. There was a second there where I got really nervous that I had the lives of my whole team in my hands. I made sure to hold the wheel real straight!

What songs on Highway Queen came the easiest to write and record? Which ones seemed the most difficult to capture?

Nikki Lane: “Companion” takes the cake for being the easiest piece of the puzzle. I wrote it in a quick moment sitting at the kitchen table one night and we recorded it at two in the morning when everyone should have been on their way home. I sat at the piano in the back of the room with Daniel Creamer and just wanted to show him the idea. Moments later Matt Pence was moving the vocal mic across the room and we cut it right there. The only reason we did a second take was to give the boys time to learn the harmony.

“Highway Queen” had a lot of pressure riding on it. After all, it was the title of the record long before it was written… a concept, if you will. We tracked it maybe six times in various settings at four different studios. It wasn’t that the other versions weren’t good, it just took hearing it with a bunch of different treatments before I could make a decision.

 Along with your new single, you’re offering your debut album here on NoiseTrade. What do you hear when you listen back to your earlier work?

Nikki Lane: I’m really impressed with it… I mean, I’ve been lucky to work with such great producers since day one. I can hear the growth in the songwriting as time progresses and I also see just how much of my cards have been shown. The first record was made as a young married woman trying to carve a career path. By the second record, I am heartbroken and divorced. It’s nice to have a new one which still reflects the truth but shows signs of evening out. Maybe a little bit of luck in love, as well.

Finally, from your impeccable stage gear to your vintage shop High Class Hillbilly, your country credentials go far beyond just the music. What part does fashion play in your overall creative aesthetic and what can you tell us about your store?

Nikki Lane: I believe that being a front man isn’t just about the songs I write, it’s about the entire identity. It has to reflect the character. It has to be genuine. It has to be original. That part has always been obvious to me, long before I started playing music. What can I say, I am a sucker for Elvis, ZZ Top, and Loretta Lynn. They’re not legends because they were dressed in clothes from the mall. So I began collecting and working on my identity a long time ago. Trying to decide how to reflect what’s going on inside on the outside.

High Class Hillbilly is what happens when collecting gets out of hand. I opened the store because there were too many great treasures to leave behind. Besides, most of the pieces I find, I can almost picture exactly who they’re going to end up with. Owning the store also helps me connect with fans and friends in a different way than music and I enjoy that.
