About Me

a Canadian folk rocker exploring life's short straws and berries through music and poetry. Relieve the guard in high regard for ear and soul.

"Zane is a musician with a story to tell. From teenage years busking the streets in Canada, Zane has travelled the world, lived outside with punks, meditated for months on end, participated in an exchange program in Nicaragua, and finally settled in Berlin. Now he is working on his solo record, set to drop early next year.

Zane's sound is characterized by his deep expressive voice and electronic baritone guitar, which features heavily on his tracks. Catchy hooks combined with innovative arrangements, creative recording and electronic sounds give Zane's music a unique character, which draws influence from Grizzly Bear, Mother Mother and Jack White.
His fresh sound and charisma has secured him attention of promoters around Berlin, warming up at a sold out show for Sheppard (Universal), and recording as a featured artist for Chi Thanh and MC Fitti.

Outside the world of music, Zane writes poetry, runs live music workshops in contemporary dance, is involved in the gay community - as a result of his gay parentage and has written about his experience as a street musician for Shlur magazine." ~ Rob Willis
