Alesia Lani Breaks the Austin Music Mold

Austin is known for its singers and songwriters in folk and rock genres, but not as much for those creating R&B music. Alesia Lani is one of the creative artists out to change that perception with her own Texas-fried style.

Still a relative newcomer to the scene (her first album dropped in 2015), Lani recently teamed up with label mates and Austin MC's Tone1y and Clova on a new single called "Ride," and she's hoping to release a new album this year. Matt Meinke spoke with Alesia from Austin.

More about the artist can be found on her Facebook page.

Listen to Notably Texan, weekday from 11am to 2pm on KETR.
