There is a sense of honesty, integrity, richness and power that speaks true through the sounds of Jaryd Lane allowing him to reach his audience in a way that seems near effortless. He connects to ordinary working people through lyrics that make a simple testament to their dreams, aspirations and hopes. With a vibe primarily based off of southern roots, this rootsy rocker has earned and gained the respect of music lovers ranging from rock to country to blues.
Hailing from the Gulf coast of south Louisiana, Lanes songs speak of high lonesome stories tapping into God, sin, love, family, hardships, misconnections, highs and lows in a Lynyrd Skynyrd grit and Bob Seger drifter acoustic kind of way. The characters in the songs, more times than none biographical, always tend to be relatable allowing his reputation as an artist/songwriter to grow in turn giving the listener a sense of wealth. As the old saying goes, “You can’t fake it if you’re gonna make it, you gotta live it.”
The long road to Lane as we know has been all but eventful at times. With deals gone sour, Lane proved that you could take ones innocence and try to leave like a kinlen for the coal, but the harder the life the sweeter the song. With a raw, rough-edged and emotional voice Lane refused to be captured or tamed hitting the scene as he had done before eager to build an even greater legion of fans. With such authenticity, Lane words are not only believable but you get a glimpse through his own eyes of his own frustrations, hopes and dreams that he has felt. Some may call that lost, but he calls it freedom.
Having had an opportunity to share the stage with acts such as Aaron Lewis, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Bad Company, Darius Rucker and Travis Tritt has helped this Southerner turn a few heads and is sure to keep em turning. With a determination and hunger to be heard, Lane is proof that if you do something long enough people will hear. In doing so Lane is set to release his 10th studio album Fall of 2022 with a back to basics acoustic based rootsy southern sound with his band ‘THE PARISH’. Alongside his full band shows Lane has also been stringing up a solo acoustic tour titled the “Dust N Bones Sessions”. No smoke, no lights, just a guitar and a pile of songs featuring Jaryd in his most comfortable element. We invite you to listen to the sounds of Jaryd Lane and The Parish.
