Zane Carney
Zane Carney is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, most known for his work with John Mayer, CARNEY, and Broadway's "Spider Man -Turn Off The Dark." Zane has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, and Roy Hargrove, appeared on Oprah, Ellen, and David Letterman, opened for U2, Fergie, and The Black Crowes with his band CARNEY, and worked collaboratively with Bono & The Edge, Don Was and Alex Da Kid.

Zane has stepped out as a solo artist writing, performing and singing his own material to sold out audiences on the east and west coast. A recent weekly stint at LA's Hotel Cafe was extended three times, turning what was supposed to be just four shows into a 5 month residency of standing room only performances - evidence that the transition from gunslinger to frontman has not been in vain. While Bono of U2 referred to Zane as "the best guitarist in NY" during his stint at Spider-Man on Broadway, it's clear that Zane's passion for singing and songwriting has found listening ears and a buzz that's continuing to grow. As the awakening unfolds, comparisons to the industry chatter surrounding John Mayer's debut EP "Inside Wants Out" have been somewhat serendipitously drawn…

Zane Carney's Confluence (Singer-Songwriter EP) and Amalgam (Jazz Guitar Album) are both available Worldwide on the iTunes Music Store

With his new debut, Collecting Trip, R. Finn has created a heartfelt album rooted in timeless Americana and colored by subtly lush, alternately haunting and hopeful arrangements. The Southern California songwriter took the long way around on this journey, some of his songs on the record tracing back nearly a decade.

The LP's title not only references the “collecting trips” taken by folk musicologists John and Alan Lomax, but also what the album represents to Finn: All the years of accumulating songs, players, styles and gear that have resulted in his affecting, long-evolving sound. And then there’s his deep devotion as a student of songwriting and music history. “I’m just trying to do what I love and what I listen to,” Finn says. “I’m always trying to evoke Ray Charles or Woody Guthrie.”
