Lanie raw and real
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.’’
