Shawn Lane was trained on the piano by listening to classical music and jazz from an early age. A great follower of mixing and mixing music, he often regretted the lack of musical openness of the public, but especially that of the press.
Released in 1992, Powers of Ten, his first solo album, was very well received. It was above all the fruit of two years of hard work in his home studio.
Shawn Lane collaborated many times, and on many records, with a very talented musician but above all a true friend: Jonas Hellborg.
Shawn Lane was undoubtedly the fastest guitarist of all time but, from our point of view, he was above all a composer whose melodies touch you deep in your soul. He will be missed …
