Lane Baldwin’s plan in 2012 was simple: cash in everything he had, move to California to produce a new CD with close friend and adviser Polo Jones, and take over the world – or at least tour it. Then he died. Three times. And that’s when the fun began, said No One Ever.
“My father taught me to always stand back up after life knocked me down,” Lane said. “This time, I had to crawl through the fire a while before I could stand again. It is the greatest challenge I have ever faced, and it changed me on a deeply spiritual level.”
Refusing to let an illness end his career, Lane worked tirelessly for two years to get back to the stage and studio. Now, after facing his greatest challenge, the internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter and bassist is poised to realize his greatest achievement.
Lane will soon release a new single and video to mark his return to the stage. I Won’t Give Up is Lane’s personal “defiant anthem” to help him through his recovery. The song was produced by Lane’s long-term mentor and advisor (and now his manager) Polo Jones (Zucchero, Sting, Eric Clapton, et al) while the video was produced by Page 1 Films. The video features members of the new touring band, including
A musician since age 5, Lane has enjoyed a career that has spanned six continents, performing for millions. Dig the Hole, his 2008 CD (recently re-released) won international acclaim as “the best new blues in decades.” Now, with his 2013 CD, The View From Here, Lane steps beyond his blues roots with songs that feature his other writing styles. Blues, rock, bluegrass – even a lullaby – are all here, offering the listener a much deeper perspective into Lane’s heart and soul.
