Adding sass to the smoky, sultry sounds of a bygone era, Lanie (pronounced “Lannie”) is an undeniable talent who draws on the past and plants it very firmly in the here and now. read more
Three years have passed since LANIE LANE released her much loved debut album ‘To the Horses’. It was a record that saw Lanie reach dizzying heights and live out some experiences that most songwriters only dream of. Across 18 months, she signed to Ivy League Records, saw her debut album enter the ARIA charts at #12, play sold out national tours and make appearances at a long list of high profile festivals. She graced the covers of a stack of quality magazines, made trips to the US and UK, won FBi Radio’s SMAC Award for Record of the Year, The Age’s EG award for Best Female and the AIR award for Best Blues and Roots Record. Somewhere in all of that, she recorded a single in Nashville for none other than Jack White and to top it all off, To The Horses went Gold.
After bright lights, big stages and long flights, Lanie moved herself to a secluded area in the Victorian bush to write her next body of work – an environment perfect for an artist ready to emerge into her own creative truth. The end result is Lanie’s astonishing new album NIGHT SHADE.
Night Shade sees Lanie’s confident and distinctive voice deepen with a superb heartfelt quality. Integrating her self-transformation through her creative process, we hear a much-evolved complexity in her guitar compositions and lyrics. Night Shade is a record with deep roots, exploring universal themes of internal strength, sensuality, light and dark, femininity and spirituality. It’s the sort of record that can only be written in solitude, inspired by the wild. It’s honest, personal and raw.
