"Richard Lane’s songs touch the elusive space between recollection and regret, a secret place of half formed memories, faded baggage and past hurts. And in the telling there is a healing, and a promise of a brighter morning.
This album is that hardest of musical feats, a musician who has known the joys and the pains of faith, singing with clear-eyed vision of the way back from heartbreak and loss. It’s a journey Richard charts with raw honesty, grace and a compelling brio."

Neil Chenoweth, Senior investigative writer, Sydney Financial Review

I absolutely love this album - it is beautifully produced and well sung. I feel it speaks for many of us who struggle with our faith on occasions. You can hear the angst in Richard's voice as he tells you of his own struggles. The lyrics are so poignant and really touch the heart.

Barbara Milnes

I really love this album and play it continuously. It is sung beautifully and the lyrics and music are so meaningful. It has touched my soul. I would certainly recommend that you buy it.

Listen Up
Gospel album? Not really, certainly not in genre, although the lyrical content is about faith. Musically, I’d say we’re looking at the unrecognized Burt Bacharach of our generation. But Richard Lane is much more: a vocalist comparable to internationally acclaimed artists like Cliff Richard, George Michael and Harry Connick, Jr. to name just three. And like the aforementioned he’s old school: that’s to say, musical, melodic and stylistically diverse. In addition, Richard shows his ability as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer. His brother, Andrew Lane, comfortably fills the shoes of Hal David, as he pens the lyrics for three songs, I Want You There, Embroidered Heart and Father Me, as well as writing the words and music to the epic Sunday Afternoon. I’m not going to review each song as I believe the only way to experience Richard’s journey is to go to his website www.niltavamusic.com or here where it’s only US$9.99 for a download, and encourage you to listen to it several times from beginning to end - a better 10 bucks you will never spend!

Molten caramel vocals
This album is both challenging and courageous. The songs are very well written, catchy and the musicianship, superb. It manages to encompass many musical genres without sounding disjointed. Everyone has their own taste in singers but I love the way Richard sings. I can only describe it as the vocal equivalent of molten caramel in silky smooth chocolate! The guests on the album are world class with Nick Manson absolutely tearing it up on a jazz rendition of the old Sunday School song "Give me oil in my Lamp" to Marty Walsh's angst-filled guitar solos on the pleading Psalm 143. Rounding this off are the gorgeous harmonies so beautifully tailored by the incredibly talented James Rose. If all Christian albums were this unique and professional, I'm convinced my collection would be considerably larger!
