New Signing: Laneous
‘A genius’ – Nai Palm
After watching his career for many years, we are THRILLED to announce and welcome LANEOUS – one of our favourite Australian artists – to the Soul Has No Tempo family. From Kafka to Kooii, Laneous & The Family Yah to Vulture St. Tape Gang, West End’s prodigal son has made his long-awaited return to the studio and stage to reclaim his front-man throne and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with him on his forthcoming debut solo album.
Following a move to Melbourne in 2016, the world-class guitarist, vocalist, composer, visual artist and muse, leapt to action when he was offered a stage at the pending Strawberry Fields festival. Excited to create new music with Laneous, Paul Bender and Simon Mavin of Hiatus Kaiyote came on board swiftly as collaborators for the event, joined by Donny Stewart – vibraphone + flugelhorn - and Hudson Whitlock on drums. Deadline looming, and with a room full of genius on their side, they infused controlled chaos with exotica & soul to produce a set which overflowed naturally into a record, with Bender taking the reigns as the album’s producer.
The result, a delicate and delicious journey through a near two-decade career, is Laneous' long awaited solo debut: a sublime genre work peerless in Australia and a record we cannot wait to share with you in 2019!
