MEGAN LANE | ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT
Megan Lane is a rock musician from Saskatoon, SK who earned her status as a prodigious guitarist with a commanding voice from her pre-teen years on. From her early days cutting her teeth at all-ages blues jams to a decade working as a full-time musician touring the country and honing her writing and performance skills, Lane emerges as one of Canada’s most surprising guitarists with her fourth release Sounding the Animal (late 2014). Steered by the deft hand of in-demand producer Hawksley Workman, Lane’s cut-to-the-bone guitar solos and unbridled voice are set loose amidst the analog tones of classic rock and the punchy synthetic textures of today. The dynamic range of the album moves from up-beat danceable tracks like the lead single “Someday We Will Leave this Town” to a few stripped down acoustic tracks, such as the haunting story-song “Coyote/Wolf” that first won Workman’s attention. The album was launched in August 2014 with a well-publicized two-month cross-Canada tour.
“Someday We Will Leave this Town” (co-written with Rae Spoon) stood its ground on the top end of CBC Radio 3’s top 30 chart (R3-30) for 7 consecutive weeks (Oct 13 – Nov 24, 2014) and was awarded “Rock Song of the Year” by Vancouver’s RightOutTV 2014 Music & Video Awards. The lead single’s popularity was boosted by a quirky professional music video featuring members from the furry sub-culture and a cameo from Tom Wilson (of Blackie & the Rodeo Kings fame) posing as a maniacal hunter.
Building on the successful launch and radio campaign of “Someday We Will Leave this Town,” Lane is poised to release a follow up single in early 2015, the much darker spellbinding track “Cabin in the Woods.” Along with this release, Lane will launch a new music video and announce Canadian and European tour dates, which will keep her busy up to summer 2015.
