Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better!
I am a Singer Songwriter and Session Vocalist in Los Angeles. Feel free to take a look around my page, listen to my vocal demos & learn more about me!
I’ve been training my voice since I was 4 years old, where I started singing in front of people for churches and special events. In fact, I was told I was singing before I was actually starting to talk. (Ok, so I preferred singing over talking).
I’ve had opportunities to sing in many venues in front of thousands of people for concerts and sporting events as well as for many small, intimate gatherings. I have worked as a studio session singer for artists & groups as both a soloist and choir/small ensemble member.
I am a classically trained vocalist & pianist receiving a Bachelors in Music from North Central University in Minneapolis, MN where I studied voice with Rebecca Norberg and piano with Elaine Wipf. In addition, I received classical/opera training for 5 years from Doreen Hutchings (University of Northwestern). After college, I studied voice with Roxie Francis (I Heart My Voice) as well as Lisa Popeil in Los Angeles. As a session singer, I work with Gerald White (Music1on1) in sight singing training.
In addition to my performance career, I am a professional vocal coach & keyboard instructor. I taught choir in a private school for four years, as well as became a Certified Yamaha Music instructor with the Yamaha Corporation. In 2013, I took my career into a new direction and opened up Briana Lyn Studios, where I am currently the owner of a multi-teacher music studio.

In addition to singing, I am also a keyboard player and singer songwriter. I love collaborating in songwriting with music producers and other songwriters.
With my extensive music reading and piano background, I accompany singers & choirs for special events. In 2016, I came out with my first EP album called Lullaby Trio where I showcased one of my original songs, “Ladybug”, along with some of my other favorite Disney songs.
I have my own home recording studio where I record vocals for my own projects as well as for other artists’ & music producers. I record and mix professional level vocals using Logic Pro and Melodyne. I use a ID22 interface, midi keyboard and WA-47 tube microphone.
My singing styles that I specialize in are Country, Disney, Pop, Folk & Jazz.
As a session singer, I am extremely professional, while at the same time lighthearted and easy to talk to. I know how to get the job done in a timely manner. I am humble and can take criticism and direction without getting offended.
Throughout my life I’ve sung in choirs, 4-part ensembles as well as bands, which have given me the skills necessary to be a very adaptable singer than can blend easily with other voices and work with other instruments. If you have lead sheets, I can read music easily with my classical piano background. Otherwise, I have a very good ear and can harmonize easily as well.
I sing for parties, weddings, funerals, memorial services and other live events. I have a variety of repertoire to fit any occasion. If I don’t have a particular song you have in mind, I can easily learn any song.
Send me a message so we can get in touch. I do a lot of home studio work and work with many artists just online without needing to go anywhere! I look forward to connecting and sharing my music with you!
