ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a songwriter, Jeff Lane turns hillbilly dialect into high English literature. He sees metaphors in everyday things that are all too often take for granted. Jeff's songs are deeply connected to nature and the mountains of his native East Tennessee. The images of hills, trees and old country barns permeate his songs. He finds the answers to the deepest philosophical questions in the quiet solitude of the countryside. His songs reflect that peace of mind and tranquility are as simple as enjoying the sunrise, working on the farm, and appreciating the small pleasures in life.

Jeff's lyrics are filled with a common sense of wisdom that is planted firmly in the spirituality of the mountains and mountain folks. There is a deep reverence for these folks and their culture in Jeff's songs, his lyrics filled with old mountain sayings and remedies. These songs also reveal an unpretentious sense of humor and a sharp eye for irony. Jeff writes about real life in an honest, straightforward manner. He writes about love, love lost, hope, sadness, mortality, nature, home, the road, simple thrills, picking by the campfire, cars, girls, family, dreams... he writes about those little ironies in life, and he writes from the point of view of one who has found that the grass is just as green on this side. His songs lift you up, and they do not hide behind false eyelashes and masquerades. They are happy, they are sad, they are all about what it means to be alive; and in the end, they offer hope to a world that so often seems without hope.

As a performer, Jeff is as much a story-teller as he is a songwriter. He is a true performing Singer-Songwriter that understands the role of each. As a musician his guitar picking is precise, whether soft and subtle, or hard and heavy, always precise. He sings with an air of authority and confidence, yet with a humbleness that endears him to the audience. His command of the stage can turn a loud honky-tonk into a listening room with just a few words. And perhaps most importantly, as entertainment is about being entertained, he entertains; he lifts the listener up. And that is what good music is supposed to do: a good performance of a good song is a prescription for the soul. Jeff Lane is a healer.
