Brisbane based singer-songwriter, Paris Lane has been in the music scene for over 20 years. He plays gigs and events throughout the Gold Coast and all the way up to Brisbane, engaging audiences with his fusion of acoustic and pop/rock tunes. We caught up with him ahead of his gig at Cabana Bar & Lounge in June to get to know him a little better.
How did you discover your talent for music?
I found music when I was given a guitar for my 10th birthday. I was determined to learn how to play and found my passion for artistic expression. It has given me the same passion and drive ever since.
How would you describe your sound?
A delicate and unique fusion of guitar and piano. A mix between Coldplay and John Mayer.
What’s in your music collection and who are your musical inspirations?
I’m a real metal head as much as I tend to write about flowers and fairy tales. Ed Sheeran and Pearl Jam are my most favourable inspirations these days.
Are you working on any personal projects at the moment, and where is the best place we can hear your music?
I am working on my debut album after the release of an EP and two singles last year- I hope to have a release date soon. You can catch my upcoming gig on the Gold Coast at Cabana Bar & Lounge or on my YouTube Channel.
Catch Paris Lane play at Cabana Bar & Lounge’s Friday Acoustic Sessions form 5pm on Friday, 1 June, Friday 6 July and Friday 3 August.
