Shawn Lane Bio

Shawn Lane was born in 1963, in Tennessee. He joined the band Black Oak Arkansas at age 15 and toured extensively in the US, despite his tender age. He soon achieved legendary status due to his amazing, high-speed precision solo work. In parallel with his career as a Memphis session player, he has been studying the piano and continually developing his writing. Soon his demos and recordings spread through the underground cassette tape copying network, and he was a worldwide celebrity among guitar players without even having released a record. He has written columns in guitar magazines and made guitar instruction videos, and he finally recorded a solo album (Powers of Ten on Warner Brothers) in 1991. He is a big fan of Liszt, Scriabin and other late-romantic piano virtuoso composers and a diehard movie connoisseur.
