  • OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

    LANA LANE AND ERIK NORLANDER -- The First Couple of Symphonic Rock
     

    (Los Angeles, 20 January 2003) Lana Lane and Erik Norlander have created some of the most exciting, engaging and enchanting rock music in recent years. Appearing together and apart on over 25 albums since 1993, Lana and Erik's musical performances evoke the majesty of a bygone era and still remind us of all the great music of today and all that is yet to come.

    Lana Lane and Erik Norlander have created an astounding blend of progressive rock, American hard rock and European heavy metal resulting in a deeply symphonic style that is rich and lush, powerful and aggressive, moody and evocative. Lana's world-class vocals have been described as "angelic, passionate and sorrowful", and aside from her own string of highly successful albums, Lana has been asked to make countless guest appearances on other major album projects from around the world. Lana's vocals have appeared on albums alongside many other legendary vocalists including Glenn Hughes, Bruce Dickinson and Mark Boals.

    Erik's signature virtuoso keyboard work has not only appeared on his own three solo albums, but also is the backbone for the highly acclaimed Los Angeles progressive band Rocket Scientists who have released four albums to date. Erik's keyboard and production work also provides the strong sonic foundation for each of the stellar Lana Lane albums. Erik has also made memorable guest appearances on many albums including titles by Ayreon, Star One, Mark Boals, Neil Citron and Magna Carta tribute albums. Erik also recently completed a massive project as the executive producer for the the Line 6 GuitarPort, an interactive computer product, where he recorded over 200 new versions of classic rock and blues tracks (from Led Zeppelin to Elvis) working with legendary artists such as Jason Bonham, Simon Phillips, Vinny and Carmine Appice, Gregg Bissonete, Leland Sklar, Robben Ford, Double Trouble and scores of others.

    Lana and Erik bring their music to the stage with passion and flair. In addition to presenting favorite selections from their own body of work in masterful form, the pair also is renown for delivering inventive cover renditions of classic songs including the immortal "In the Court of the Crimson King", "Seasons End", "Dream On", "Stormbringer" and "Long Live Rock n Roll".

    Lana's powerful and dramatic stage presence consistently creates a memorable concert, and her live vocalizations add even more emotion and substance to her already stellar recorded songs. Erik's authoritative live use of classic instruments such as Hammond organ and Moog synthesizer give the concerts a depth and authenticity of sound seldom seen in modern stage productions.

    Lana Lane and Erik Norlander are currently supporting their new CD releases 'Lana Lane - Covers Collection' and 'Erik Norlander - Music Machine' (release date: May 22, 2003) as well as their recent European reissues of five Special Edition versions of the Lana Lane and Erik Norlander back catalog titles. As with their last European tour, Lana and Erik will also offer a new special limited edition "2003 Tour Souvenir CD" containing unreleased material available only at their live concerts. The pair will be appearing in Europe along with a backing band of top European musicians during the Summer of 2003.

    (Los Angeles 19 May 2003) Just added! Erik and Lana are very pleased to announce that Music Machine vocalist extraordinaire Kelly Keeling will join their June Euro tour for all shows singing material from the new Music Machine album as well as other Erik Norlander music. Kelly will also join the band on the Lana Lane songs for some earth-shaking harmonization. Two powerhouse vocalists ... one brief European tour! Don't miss it!
