About

Bringing passion and inspiration to every performance, Lani's ability to evoke emotion within an audience is only matched by her breathtaking vocal range. From an early age, Lani discovered her love for singing and has spent her life in pursuit of her musical dreams, including educating others and sharing the gift of music. 

 

Currently, Lani is pursuing her Masters of Music Degree in Pedagogy at Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium, and honing her art as a singing teacher, songwriter and performer. Lani is available for private singing lessons at her music studio in Brisbane's West End @ 17 Browning Street.

Lani released her debut EP Fallen From Grace in February 2018 and has since toured the East Coast of Australia. Fallen From Grace has since featured on ArtSound FM (ACT), QBN FM (NSW), and Joy FM (VIC), with a spread in the Newcastle Herald and as Editor’s Choice in BMA Magazine.

Lani spent a semester abroad in the latter part of 2018 at Indiana University. While in the US, Lani was under the guidance of renowned musicians including Walter Smith III & Dr Kenneth Brian Edmonds (aka Babyface). Lani also performed with the IU Soul Revue and Latin Jazz Ensemble. Keep an eye out for her next album to be released very soon!

Singers are the only musicians who learn to play their instrument while still building it! Lani has been singing since she was young... well over fifteen years ago. Still enamoured with the art, Lani loves to write her own songs because sometimes words just aren't enough. On this page, you can find many of Lani's experiences as a performing artist.
