Have you Lanie Lane’d lately?

So it’s obvious that she is beautiful. Having just been USA side to work with Jack White of The White Stripes fame, she must have serious chops as well. We take a lot of notice of who is on the rise and when we had the chance to have Lanie with us at our property this week, it’s safe to say that we had a hotel full of star struck staff on our hands.

It’s also safe to say that anyone who wasn’t already a fan when she arrived, certainly was by the time she left, heading for Adelaide to play at the next instalment of the Day On The Green series of vineyard shows, where she shares the stage  with other Australian greats Icehouse. 

Here’s a little bit about this babe:

Her debut album is ‘To The Horses’, a collection of 11 songs that duck and weave through aheady mix of early rock ‘n’ roll, blues, and rockabilly, serving up fantastic tales of love, lust, heartbreak and the importance of a good guitar – all delivered by one of the most undeniably distinctive voices and charming characters in Australian music.

Recorded and mixed over a grand total of four days with her band at a studio in Sydney, the self-produced ‘To The Horses’ showcases Lanie’s irrepressible talent for crafting songs that are as raw and gritty as they are warm and inviting.

Written as individual pieces then recorded quickly in a manner reminiscent of years gone by – four people in a room playing music together, no more and no less – the songs sound live and alive.

We love, love, love her. She is a lovely little thing and we just wanted to keep her. Check out more on lanielane.net.
