Biography

Critics agreed that the phrase “on the verge” was never more poignant than when listening to a track from Juniper Lane’s Sirens From a Mile Back. In a tragic twist of fate, less than a year after Sirens was released to rave reviews and fan acclaim, singer Vivion Smith was involved in a nearly fatal rock-climbing accident. Juniper Lane’s career came to a sudden halt despite the press attention, industry interest, and commercial radio spins Sirens was commanding.

After spending a week in a coma, Smith left the hospital to begin the arduous tasks of regaining her memory, rehabilitating her pianist hand, and rebuilding her life. A year later, Juniper Lane reconnected to explore the possibility of their own recovery and found that the drive and dynamic they once possessed was unchanged. It soon became apparent that instead of picking up where they left off, Juniper Lane was back as an even more inspired and motivated version of themselves.

Juniper Lane has mastered that which eludes so many musical acts: the ability to produce a diverse range of well-crafted songs while putting forth an unmistakably signature sound. With the recent national commercial success of bands that straddle the line between indie and mainstream rock (Death Cab for Cutie, Snow Patrol), it seems the music industry has finally caught up to Juniper Lane.

    Take Me Home is great. The rest of Wake From Yourself has left me less than impressed so far.
