Brendan Lane is an artist with a pure passion for music. Born into a family full of musicians, he had a major attraction toward music from a very early age. With a jazz musician father in the picture and surrounded by records as a child, he discovered rock ‘n’ roll at the age of eight, and that became the turning point. His life had a singular pursuit and purpose. That purpose has led Lane around the world, performing on three different continents with various performers, which has deepened his understanding of what it means to be a performer. Irrespective of where or with whom he performs with, Lane strives to communicate his passion for music with the audience.
Most recently, Lane completed an east coast tour with his band, Brendan Lane and the Sugar Packets, trekking from Massachusetts to Texas and reaching new audiences. Sharing his music with new audiences only reinforced Lane’s desire to play music as much as possible. As an exceptional singer, songwriter, and musician, his music is defined as a classic folk or country style. Being the master of lyrics writing, his lyrics can send a wave of various emotions that one can find relatable. Brendan Lane is also a touring artist; having toured three different continents, he has a strong way of communicating his passion for music with his audiences. Major influences on his music are Jack Johnson, Cat Stevens, and John Denver. “They are the songwriting masters for me,” says the artist, and he aims to honor their craft. Jack Johnson was a big influence on my playing and songwriting style, as well as classic rock and blues artists like the Bratles, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn and John Mayer. Bruce Springsteen is a songwriter the artist admires wholeheartedly.
The songwriter has announced the release of his sixth studio single, “One Life.” This upbeat blend of hip-hop and blues rock encourages the audience to rise above the inherited traumas of our predecessors and reminds them not to listen to the noise of the doubters in the world. The song was written by Brendan Lane, and produced by Chris Jennings, and it featured Delaware rapper Quesmark. “One Life” will be released on February 24, 2023, and will be accompanied by a video that will be released one week after the song goes live on all digital streaming platforms. The funky and energetic song reassures the audience to follow their own path in life while also considering how challenging it can be when some traumas and internal struggles are passed down from one generation to the next. Brendan explains that the initial seed of the song came to him after a show in the summer of 2022, while crashing at a friend’s house during a midnight beer hangout. He had his guitar out and started playing the main riff of the verses before he realized he was forming his new song. The themes of love, loss, and life-changing adventures dominate this talented artist’s growing collection. “Grand Prize,” released in June 2022 and produced by Charles Jennings of Stardust Productions and mixed by Tyler Bean of Slow Pineapple, is to be followed by the original single “One Life” (featuring Quesmark).
