Lanie Lane Quits The Music Biz

in Live,News

Singer songwriter Lanie Lane has quit the music biz after just two albums.

Lane first rose to prominence with her critically acclaimed ‘To The Horses’ album and last year released the follow-up ‘Night Shade’.

Early in her career she recorded with Jack White and in October 2014 was the handpicked special guest of Tom Jones at his one-off Melbourne show.

Lane says the music business is not longer for her. In a statement she said:

“The uprooted-ness of the rock n roll lifestyle is no longer for me and the ambition (which I believe is a pre-requisite to success in the music industry) of cultivating fame or attention has completely left me now. At times, I have found the constant pressure that a touring & recording artist requires to be accustomed to, unbearable. I utterly respect those who can withstand the pressures of a life constantly on the road and with the expectations for continued success. I personally found myself not liking who I was becoming under stress and difficult circumstances. It felt like a lot of the time I was either depressed or anxious, so I’ve begun to change the circumstances of my life to be back in the flow again.

“My love of creating, writing & playing music is definitely not in question here. These aspects are the true joy of music for me. I will always sing when the time is right, but never in a way that puts any strain on my mind/body/spirit or creative flow. I’m a much happier and peaceful person when I live simply.

“I’m very much looking forward to playing the shows which remain in the calendar and I hope to perform some select shows in the future – the occasional festival or intimate house/garden concerts for fans. I do not plan on any further heavy venue touring, so I encourage my beautiful fans to come to along these upcoming shows.

“I thank from the bottom of my heart Winterman & Goldstein Management, Ivy League Records, The Harbour Agency, and Mushroom Group. You’re all incredibly hard working people and I salute your dedication to promoting Australian music!“

Lanie Lane will play her final shows across February, March and April.
