Album Notes
Just another band out of Boston. Did pretty well. Left and hid for awhile. Moved to LA to spread peace and love. Layne is a new name. Goal: trying to break your heart unknowingly while you bob your head. The EP "Up From Down" was recorded in Studio City, CA with Michael Eisenstein producing. The band members on the EP were all at some point part of the lovely and amazing Boston music scene and now all live in LALALAND; trying to keep it real. Laurie Geltman (songs/vocals/guitars), Michael Eisenstein (guitars/bass/b. vocals/producer), Fred Eltringham (drums/percussion), Peter Adams (all sorts of keys and cool sounds), Stevie Blacke (violin, cello, viola) and Kay Hanley and Michelle Lewis (aka The Dilettantes) on backing vocals. Fred has been touring non-stop with the Dixie Chicks. His regular band is The Wallflowers. Peter is a much in demand session & touring musician, but also writes and sings his own songs. He's played with so many great artists and bands (Michael Penn, Juliana Hatfield, Tracy Bonham, Tears For Fears, Michelle Shocked...too many to list!) Aside from being an amazing guitarist and hot up-and-coming producer, Michael also gigs with Kay Hanley (Letters to Cleo), Lisa Loeb, Our Lady Peace and Nina Gordon (Veruca Salt) among others. Kay Hanley is a rock star and Michelle Lewis is a successful songwriter and phenomenal singer. As a band leader under her own name, Laurie performed with Aimee Mann, Patty Griffin, Morphine, Joe Cocker, Susan Tedeschi, Lilith Fair '98 (Sarah M., Luscious Jackson, Emmy Lou, Natalie Merchant), Eric Burdon, Rick Danko, Jonatha Brooke, Old 97's, Leon Russell, etc. But let's clean the slate. You (anybody listening) will create Layne's Bio when the EP gets out into the world. Help yourself to a review.

California sunshine with a touch of New England attitude
Milwaukee, Layne (from the self-released Up From Down)
Laurie Geltman was part of the musical exodus from Boston to Los Angeles several years back and has finally re-emerged with a six-song ep under the name Layne. This rousing guitar-driven rock song has a killer hook that perfectly balances a bit of California sunshine with a touch of New England attitude.

When Is the Whole World Going to Catch On Here?
First off, lemme say I got to know this band from the song Milwaukee (MY Hometown!!) - I couldn't get it outta my head for months - now they've released it on this EP/CD thingy. This song should be Milwaukee's municipal mantra. C'mon Brewers, start playing this in the stadium!

Happily the whole CD rocks in a similar fashion -
couldn't be happier with my purchase of this CD !!

Stevey Steve ("The Velvet Viper")

Rich in Range; Poweful, Provocative and Emotive.
Very Good Stuff from LAYNE, and anyone who has followed this artist won't be surprised by that. From the playful and rythmic riffs of Milwaukee to the honest humanity in Constellation, this record RIPS!! Can't wait for more from this seasoned supergroup. You heard it here first: Safe is the most likely single (ever) to be covered by Pearl Jam. LAYNE will keep you sane from the pain, their tunes ingrained in your brain, long may they reign!


Layne's new CD
Just listened to a few cuts off the new CD. I'm ordering two! I'm an old Laurie Geltman fan from Boston and was waiting for this release. Layne did not disappoint. Love the first track “sorry for you”. When will the band be in Boston for a show?
