PRESENTED BY LAYLA ANNA-LEE
Lana was born. It was a sunny day and the birds were singing. Perhaps this is where she got it from?
For years she sung to herself and composed for herself, too shy to let herself loose on the world , then one day (about 8 years since this all began) she decided enough was enough, it's time to battle the trembles and sing to the world.
Portugal 1999 'Lana begins to let it rip: Jumping at the chance to steal the limelight, every time she passes a bar with a guitar, 'Lana rises to the stage and begins to play. Egged on by a warm reception and a love of the attention, upon returning to Leeds to finish her studies she throws herself into bands, recording projects and gigs. Singing funked up electronic dance music with the infamous Doctor Octopus, touring England with the magnificent and mighty Bluefoot Project, oohing and la-ing in the studio with Kabin Fever and enjoying a 3 month residency, Sunday afternoons with a jazz band.
Now it's 2009. 'Lana ain't shy no more and she got a whole lot of shit to share. You can catch her dotted around the capital performing her songs solo and with band offering original music that supplies smiles and toe taps to the jazz standard, easy listening ballad crew as well as the dance crazy swingers and rock n rollers too! She's even got some beauties for the stoneheads and trippy kids and aint shy of a few beats.
