I think the main thing that has kept me productive over the years is that I’ve always been able to channel the excitement and the adrenaline rush of a great show into making new music. I’ve said this before, but I can’t even count how many times I have come home on a Sunday after a weekend of shows and immediately put together a new song. The feedback loop of making a new track and then getting to see it go off on a live audience (or not going off at all ?) and then making changes or even another new track inspired by that crowd energy is 100% my favorite part of this job. that’s exactly where “the gift” comes from – it’s such a privilege for me to be caught up in that cycle. Earlier this year I had just played another incredible installment of CRSSD and I had so much creative energy coming off that show, I think I wrote 2-3 new songs in the week after. This was one of them. Out now.

‘The Gift’ presents itself through a groovy deep rhythm as harrowed vocal chops lay above. Subsequently, a sharp dissonant synth subverts the energy which picks back up moving to the riser. In retrospect, this stands to be emphasizing a darker soundscape in comparison to his earlier releases off the upcoming album.


Lane 8 is preparing to embark on his tour in support of ‘Brightest Lights’ early 2020. So far, Jerro and Aquiver were announced as support acts on a few dates. Finally, To find the tour dates and get your tickets, refer to his website here.
