Juniper Lane is an alternative, five-piece band from the Washington, DC area. Their music has been described as "cryptic, polished dark pop firmly rooted in but not too derivative of '80s modern-rock."

The band was founded by vocalist/pianist, Vivion, and guitarist, Chris, who started writing music together in the spring of 1998. By that fall, the band had grown to include drummer Eddie, and bassist Freddy. In 2008, John joined the band.

Their debut album, Counting, was released in 1999. It was followed up with Tightrope in 2001 and Sirens From a Mile Back in 2003. The band took off most of 2004 for Vivion to recover from a nearly fatal rock-climbing accident. After her recovery, they returned to the studio during 2005 and 2006. The band released Wake From Yourself at a sold out CD release show at the 9:30 Club on August 18, 2007.

In July 2008, Coldplay chose Juniper Lane to open for them at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC on August 3, 2008. In February 2009, famed mixer Michael Brauer (Coldplay, Paul McCartney, John Mayer, The Fray) mixed four new songs Juniper Lane has recorded for their fifth album. In March 2010, the final six songs of the forthcoming record were mixed by Paul David Hager (Goo Goo Dolls, Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus).

Juniper Lane's music has been featured on MTV's The Hills, ESPN's Baseball Tonight and NCAA Women's Final Four Coverage. Their songs have also been added to Sirius XM Radio's Flight 26 and XMU channels and spun on commercial and college stations nationwide.

The Washington Post has described Juniper Lane as "the total package," playing "polished, radio-ready rock." Washington, D.C.'s entertainment magazine, OnTap, described Wake From Yourself as being "ready to kick radio and live ass."

Juniper Lane has toured extensively on the East Coast, including shows at colleges, clubs, and venues such as the 9:30 Club, Recher Theatre, and DC's 99.1 HFStival, as well as performing in-studio for commercial radio and on live television. The band's song-writing has afforded them the opportunity to work with such industry professionals as mixer Michael Brauer, producer Ted Comerford (Zox, Army of Me), Joe Zook (Modest Mouse, Remy Zero, Liz Phair, Anna Nalick), Paul David Hager, and Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Wilco, Suzanne Vega).
