Mazy Lane started as a
music project by Renee van de Graaf,
aka Renee Lopez, who played bassguitar in various bands
(Herman Brood, Barry Hay a.o. see The Past).
Together with the singers Leo Scheffers and Geert Jan Westenbrink,
assisted by musician friends ("guests"), they made two albums.
The first one is simply called "Mazy Lane" and
the second one "What You Measure With A Clock" .
On both albums all songs are own compositions.
In a dutch review about the first cd someone wrote the following:
"A lot of people have the tendency to categorize a band.
Fortunately Mazy Lane makes it very easy for those people.
It so happens that it's totally impossible to put Mazy Lane in one category.
With the third album "Through The Bricks" this is different.
This is a rock album. With a lot of guitars and raw vocals.
But beside rock songs like "Cruel Minded" and "Drag You" you can also
find some guitar-pop orientaded songs like "In Every Life" and "Why Do We".
More and more Mazy Lane has become a project of Leo en Renee.
They already know each other since childhood (school, first band etc.).
On this album you can hear a lot of musical influence from that time.
Renee plays guitar, bass and some keys, Leo sings all songs.
Again assisted by some guest musicians. On background vocals Bert Beenen.
Guitars by Mick Heine and Erwin van Ligten.
PLAY IT LOUD!
BThe recordings are made in Lopez Productions studio in Hilversum, the Netherlands.
The album is expected the second half of januari 2015.
