Lanie raw and real

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE 'N' LOUD -

Lane (pic­tured) is ex­cited to ‘‘bring back the raw­ness’’ when she takes to the stage with just her gui­tar on the Gold Coast to­mor­row night. The Mel­bournebased blues-jazz songstress says her solo show cre­ates a dif­fer­ent kind of con­nec­tion with the au­di­ence. ‘‘It’s per­sonal, and way more in­ti­mate,’’ she says. ‘‘I do like hav­ing the band on stage, it gives dif­fer­ent lay­ers to the sound. But when it’s just me, I’m more of a trou­ba­dour, and I make sure the songs come across in that way.’’ Lane re­leased her de­but al­bum To The Horses last year which peaked at No. 12 on the ARIA charts. ‘‘It’s get­ting to­wards the end of the al­bums cy­cle,’’ she says. ‘‘I have been writ­ing quite a lot, so will hope­fully re­lease an­other al­bum next year.’’ While To The Horses car­ries heavy blues, rock­a­billy and ’50s in­flu­ences, Lane says her next al­bum will have a ’70s flavour. ‘‘I have been lis­ten­ing to a lot of ’70s rock’n’roll lately – Doors, Led Zep­pelin, Pink Floyd – I feel like my next al­bum will be new and fresh, not so much ’50s rock’n’roll.’’ Lane says the ’50s vibe in To The Horses felt like the nat­u­ral path to take. ‘‘I was re­ally at­tracted to how it was the be­gin­ning of rock’n’roll,’’ she says. ‘‘There’s a lot of soul in that mu­sic. It made a lot of sense to me as it res­onates with me. I go with the flow with what feels right.’’

Lanie Lane and Jordie Lane play The SoundLounge, at Cur­rumbin RSL, to­mor­row night.
