"Singer Carrie Lane explains new anti-bullying song in an exclusive interview"

Singer Carrie Lane is a rising star, born and raised in Montclair, New Jersey. She found her voice freshmen year at New York University when she realized music made life more clear. Having been bullied as a child, recent suicide headlines urged Carrie Lane and Ron Geffen to write, "Don't Stand By Stand Up," in support of anti-bullying. The now New Yorker sat down with AXS.com for an exclusive interview on Monday to discuss the Grammys, her inspiration and the moving tribute to stand up against bullies.

From her earliest moments Carrie Lane remembers “always being surrounded by music.” She would throw a tantrum if a time arrived that forced her to miss voice or singing lessons. As Carrie describes, “there is something about addicting about music, and it satisfies a love that I don’t have for anything else.”

Although Carrie Lane began her training as a young child in performing arts throughout New York and New Jersey, it wasn’t until her first semester at NYU at the age of 18 when her “personal music career” developed. “I had attended one semester at NYU, and found myself lost among my peers. Everyone seemed to know exactly who he or she wanted to be and where he or she wanted to go. I did not know any of those things, and I was completely okay with that. Music was my way of finding myself. I started taking voice lessons again, and began writing and recording on my own.”

Carrie is a model and the face of Bangz. She donated her cash prize from the model search to Juvenile Diabetes, a cause dear to her heart because she also suffers from the disease. But the singer doesn’t look at it as a hindrance. On the contrary, when asked if it interfered with her success, she answered, “It does not define me, but it is a huge part of what I cope with on a daily basis. However, in the long run, growing up with Diabetes has taught me so many invaluable lessons that I am so lucky to have learned.”

Growing up with Diabetes is one of the factors that led to Carrie Lane’s anti-bullying crusade. “As a child, I was bullied a lot because of my Diabetes. Kids will take something that is different about you, and blow it up to be this huge ordeal that makes you who you are. They stamp you and label you ‘loser,’ ‘freak,’ ‘sick.’ Those words have stuck with me through the years and have urged me to push for this issue." The video, which could be seen above was also shot, edited and directed by Carrie Lane and Alison Drew.

Carrie Lane’s message for hopefuls is to “work hard. You’re not going to get anywhere cutting corners and trying to beat the system, it is just impossible.” But the up-and-coming singer also stresses to hold tight to your ideals and dreams. “Stay true to what you believe in because there are going to be a million voices pushing you every which way, and you need to know that what you believe in for yourself is good enough.”

Fans can catch Carrie Lane every Monday with a new video on YouTube. She has toured New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Arizona and California within the last six months. She could soon be seen on The CreaTour. She plans on watching the Grammys at home with her family curled up with a nice cup of cocoa and warm pajamas. She has no predictions, because, “this year so much amazing music was made, it's hard to choose among all of the incredible musicians.” Perhaps she’ll make it there some day, as her freshmen album was compiled by a team of award winning engineers and producers. - AXS

Carrie Lane is gorgeous, talented and an all-around sweetheart. She is also an up and coming music star that is on her way to being the next big thing. She recently talked to TVGrapevine in an exclusive interview about her career. Below are some of the highlights from our chat.

1. She started off in musical theatre when she was only four years old, but at that time it was only a hobby. She stopped performing in high school and attended college for childhood education, which is something she is still doing today. However, she still wanted to find her passion, so she went back to music, writing and taking voice lessons. This led to her making the decision to be a solo artist and before long, she was working with a band and making music videos.

2. She spent all of last summer touring with Kevin Jonas’s wife’s brother in the USA Winter Lights tour and is currently working on another tour this year. She will be heading to Nashville, LA and Texas and is excited to see what is to come.

3. She was inspired to write by Carole King, someone she considers to be a beautiful lyricist. She also loves writing poems and says she never realized that she could turn her words and feelings into a song.

4. She loves to collaborate with other artists, but says she never collaborated with a female. She thinks it could be empowering and says some of her dream artists to work with include Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Lorde. She says it would be great to have two powerhouses work together because it could lift them up.

5. She releases a new video every Monday on her social media pages, Carrie Lane Music. They include covers, collaborations, original songs and everything in between. She hopes that this helps people get excited for her new album, which will be released this spring.

6. Carrie Lane is supportive of Sound Affects , a charitable organization that is redefining the war on cancer through crowdfunding cancer solutions. Carrie is supporting the campaign “Quitting Smoking Is Getting Easier. “- a new way to help people stop smoking. Carrie wants her fans to get involved by purchasing one of her rewards here: http://soundaffects.org/artist/carrie-lane-2/

Thank you to Carrie and her team for this interview and be sure to keep checking back for more news on her blossoming career!

"NT : MUSIC Carrie Lane and others sing for Make a Difference in Montclair"

When you're in school, there is nothing more liberating than a Sunday afternoon - unless it's a Sunday afternoon concert. This Sunday, March 22, 15 up-and-coming stars of YouTube and Vine will be appearing at Just Jake's at 30 Park St. from noon till 4 p.m. for the Make a Difference concert benefiting Family Promise. "Family Promise is a nationwide organization for people who are down on their luck or homeless," explained the event's organizer Denise Ricciotti. "They provide them with shelter. They provide them with clothing, food, and they do services like resume services. They do job enrichment - a lot of really great things for people to help get them back on their feet.

Montclair's Carrie Lane will be among the up-and-coming performers at Just Jake's on Sunday at noon.
Montclair's Carrie Lane will be among the up-and-coming performers at Just Jake's on Sunday at noon.
"I work very closely with Family Promise," said Ricciotti, "and we were looking for a way to get young people involving in giving back. And we came up with this concert idea."

"My youngest daughter had taken me to a couple of these events where you meet the YouTubers and the Viners, and they're always successful."

Along with that kind of excitement, the concert is a worthwhile way to raise social consciousness among kids, plus an exciting way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

"This show is really geared toward teens and tweens," said Ricciotti. "It's just a really great way to get them to know that they can make a difference - which is where the name comes from. Young people have a lot of power, and their voices are sometimes just looking for a way to be heard. Sometimes they're just looking for something good to do. So they're not just coming out and buying tickets to a show, but they're also making a difference.

"All the artists who are participating have donated their time. So they're all coming out for the cause." Most of the performers, including Lenore Luca, Veronica Kole and Montclair resident Carrie Lane have been building followings online, through channels such as YouTube and Vine.

Lane's single "Don't Stand By, Stand Up," for example, has generated over 25,000 views in just two months, driven in part by the song's strong anti-bullying message. "I really wasn't expecting that kind of response," said Lane, who is juggling dual careers as a musician and model in between shifts at Egan & Sons and classes at NYU. "I think it's just because it's such a relatable kind of song, especially because of all the technology going on and all the craziness in terms of what kids are dealing with in social situations. It's a whole new animal when it comes to bullying and having to deal with that in a daily situation. So putting that out on YouTube where kids are watching all the time, I think it just kind of launched itself."

The Make a Difference concert begins at noon, with a separate charge for the post-concert meet-and-greet. Tickets can be purchased at make-a-difference-concert.eventbrite.com. For more information go to MakeADifferenceConcert.com

For Lane, it will be a special day because she has never played her hometown. "This week before the show I'll be playing at South By Southwest. which is super exciting. And I signed a contract with a group called Fullscreen, which is a YouTube promotion company, maybe the biggest one.

"And I've gotten to play Jersey venues before, but they've been a little out of reach. I mean, people will come, but it's really an exciting thing for me to be able to say, 'I'm playing in Montclair.'"

"Interview Carrie Lane"

Hey guys!

It's been a while since the last interview. But I'm back in my curious "let's ask everyone thousands of questions"-mood - so let's let the interview season begin and jump right into it.

Carrie Lane is a pop singer from New York City, US. The original New Jersey girl auditioned for and got the leading role Wendy in Peter Pan. While being just four years old.
What started as theatre performance lead into playing covers and finally writing and recording own songs.
With her music she wants to express herself and tell people about the world from her point of view.

Besides being in the music industry, Carrie is also part of the model business. With the looks and the talent for it she became the face of Bangz, won prizes and signed a contract with MSA Modeling Agency.

And today she talks about both of her passions and even more.

house in the sand: So Carrie, can you tell us a bit about how you first started making music? What was your first time on stage like?
Carrie: The first time I was on stage I was completely terrified, I was only five years old and my voice was so tiny that the audience was no even sure if I was singing. This performance was the first of many as an actress in musical theatre performances. However, as I started getting older I started performing as a singer. In high school, I was co-editor in chief of our school magazine, Between The Lines that held a benefit concert for various charities twice a year. The concert was self organized and performed and it was the first time I really go to express myself as an artist. Since I was a part of such a close knit community it was an amazing opportunity to share with people I loved, but also extremely nerve wracking because everyone in the audience knew me. Since then, I started performing covers more and more and becoming comfortable with what best suited my voice. During this time I began wirting songs on my own and I know that once I get to share these with people it will be a whole new obstacle to conquer.

house in the sand: You live in New York City - would you say the city influences your work in some way?
Carrie: Absolutely! Everything in New York City is extremely fast paced! People are always going somewhere and they always seem to be in a rush to get there. When you look around, everyone is extremely motivated and working hard at whatever it is that they are doing.
This has always driven a competitive animal inside of me. I don't necessarily like to compete with others, but I'm always competing with myself and pushing myself to be the best that I can be.

house in the sand: But you also visited Los Angeles a little while ago. What was that like?
Carrie: Coming to LA for the first time was honestly one of the most humbling and incredible experiences of my life. Being able to work on my career in a completely different element was something I was not used to. I loved the energy and creative vibes that are all around LA. It is a completely different city than New York and it definitely suits my personality more. I would love to get the opportunity to move out there at some point in my life and continue to pursue music because I think it would really shape my cragt and mature my sound as an artist.

house in the sand: You make music and you model - is there anything else you do?
Carrie: Yes! I am also a full time student at NYU, as well. Everyone always asks me if I have a favorite, but each one of them fills a different necessity for me at this point in my life. Modeling from a young age has thrown me into the business and honed my skills as a businesperson. As a model, your biggest marketing asset is yourself. You have to constantly market yourself and alter different askpects of your life to tailor to what clients are looking for. You have to be extremely professional in attending go-sees (model auditions) and on the job where you are often working with many people for very long hours. Doing this work has really helped me as a young entrepreneur trying to break into the business. In addition, school keeps me ground and on a focused track where I am surrounded by other students in an environment where everyone is really working hard and obtaining an excellent education. Both of these activities assist in my advancing my career as a singer in different ways.

house in the sand: Is there anything else you would like to try out?
Carrie: Right now it feels like I am trying everything that is meant to be for me at the moment. I am constantly experimenting with my music, writing with different people, an trying different methods for constantly improving myself as a recording artist. I am super adventurous and love to try new things, so whatever presents itself to me at the I am definitely ready to try!

house in the sand: You write your songs yourself. Can you please tell us something about the process? Where do you take your inspiration from?
Carrie: I write songs about what I am currently going through in my life. I keep a journal that I usually write in every day and these "letters to my diary" add up and usually create a theme of what is currently going on in my life. From there I usually sit down with my team and talk to them a little bit about what's going on and share some passages or quotes from what I've been writing. We then try to match the emotion that is coming from what I am feeling to an artist or track that is currently popular. Once we're able to marry the two in a way that suits my style, we continue on in writing what is hopefully a hit!

house in the sand: There are a few covers on your YouTube channel. Which song was your favorite to record?
Carrie: I love recording covers because they let you identify with what an artist is saying wihle adding your own interpretation. My favorite song to cover was "Counting Stars", by OneRepublic because it is really stripped down and an emotional song which I related to a lot at the time while recording. A lot of steps have been coming together in my career rand right now I've been really immersed in living my dreams, watching them grow, and not losing sight in them, which is what the song is about for me.

house in the sand: What are your plans for the future?
Carrie: My song 'Found You' is coming out on iTunes on April 4th as well as the music video release on YouTube the same day. I am so excited for people to hear the title track from my debut EP and get a taste of who I am as an artist! In the near future, I am going to be playing some shows and sharing some more music with fans, while continuing to write in the studio.

house in the sand: Please finish the following sentence: I am Carrie Lane and I ...
Carrie: am sweet, but unstoppable.

Thanks so much for chatting with us, Carrie! We wish you all the best and can't wait to see what you're up to next. - House In The Sand

"Carrie Lane Announces New Music Venture"

NEW YORK - Dec. 7, 2015 - PRLog -- Honey Thief is the new adventure and creative child of Carrie Lane Music. Carrie has been writing and recording music for a few years and just as she has matured, so has her music. The band Honey reflect's Carrie Lane's love for country music. By combining that affinity for country and her experience in pop music Honey Thief is a delightful combination of many music genres with an indie, folk vibe. She will debut this new sound in the upcoming EP. Her sophomore EP is scheduled to debut in February of 2016, along with a national tour to follow.

Honey Thief is inspired by the hit song The Honeythief by the band Hipsway, a popular group from Glasglow in the mid eighties. The lyrics read, "The light of deep regret Let me see what I don't get...Catch a thief, a honeythief". One thing is for sure, it will be hard to catch up with Lane as she takes off with her new project. The upcoming EP includes all live instruments and a smoother, softer, and more natural tone from Lane. Honey Thief is the perfect combination of the essence of Carrie Lane, sweet and savory.

Producer and Cowriter of Honey Thief's upcoming EP, James Strazza comments, "Carrie has been a joy to work with. I've been her producer for about a year and we've both grown a lot since we met. It takes guts to completely change your direction in this industry, but I was honored to help bring her new vision to fruition. We had all five songs written in about a months time, it happened very organically, nothing was forced. If one of us didn't like something or even felt a bit iffy, we dropped it and moved on. We didn't want any fillers on the EP, we wanted each song as strong as the last. We're both super happy with the tracks so far and looking forward to sharing them when they're finished. I think they're going to be very well received and this will be Carries best work to date. Her level of excitement and dedication to the new material speaks for itself."

"Interview with Carrie Lane of Honey Thief"

Is there a story behind your groups' name, Honey Thief?
Honey Thief is inspired by the hit song The Honeythief by the band Hipsway, a popular group from Glasgow in the mid-eighties. The lyrics read, "The light of deep regret Let me see what I don't get...Catch a thief, a honeythief".

How long have you been singing?
I have been singing since I was 4 years old. I started off doing musical theatre as a kid and fell in love with music and performing through those performances.

What first got you interested in becoming a singer?
I loved being on stage. When I was young, I would do anything to be on stage and to perform for people. I was never a shy kid, but when I was on stage, that's when I felt the most at home.

What/who inspires your music?
I'm inspired by everything around me. I'm the kind of person who always has to have music on and is always singing no matter what I'm doing. Music is all around me and constantly inspires me to create.

Do you see being a singer as a career, or as a hobby?
Music is a lifestyle and it always has been for me. I can't imagine myself doing anything else.

What are you trying to do with your music? Do you want to help your community? Are you trying to get rich? What is your goal for your music?
I want to connect with people and inspire people to do what they love and pursue what they love. I have spent my life going after what I want with a fierce passion and I can't imagine spending my time doing anything other than what I love. I want to show people that it is possible to live that way.

Have you ever performed live? How did it feel?
I have toured all over the United States. There is no feeling that compares to being on stage, it's intoxicating.

Do you have any kind of management, publishing or distribution team behind you? If so what are their responsibilities?
I do. I have a publicist and a manager. Their jobs are essentially to keep the ball rolling and keep me in the public eye. They push the content that I create and find opportunities to reach fans.

What are some accomplishments that you have achieved, and are most proud of?
I got to perform at SXSW in 2015, which was one of the coolest things I've ever done. I would say watching my social media grow and getting to tour the country have been two of the things I'm most proud of.

Have you ever made any contact with major artists or other high positioned people in the music industry and do you keep in contact with them?
I have, but a lady is never supposed to kiss and tell...

What one tip would you give to other aspiring independent artists?
Stick to your guns. If you like something, say it. If you don't like something, SAY IT. Make sure that your voice stays constant through all of your projects and you are always true to yourself, because that is the only person you have at the end of the day.

What do you see is in the future for the music industry? How do you think it will evolve/change?
I think that the music industry is as strong as ever. There is more and more diverse music becoming "mainstream". People are making what they love popular, instead of digesting what is being thrown at them by the top 40 radio stations.

Do you feel like the internet is helping you as an independent artist?
Absolutely. Nobody would know who I am without the internet honestly. The internet is a wonder for independent artists.

How do you think social networks such as Facebook and Twitter have affected the music industry?
Social media gives artists the opportunity to connect with fans like never before.

Are there any music start-ups that you think we should keep an eye on?
www.soundaffects.org !

Where can we hear your music online?

What projects are you working on at the moment?
My debut EP as Honey Thief, "Bad Idea" is coming out on February 11th!

Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years time?
Touring, on the road, sharing music, exploring...

Do you have any shoutouts you want to give?
Shoutout to James Strazza for being the most amazing producer in the world and continuing to stick with me even when I'm a crazy person in the studio. And shoutout to Ryan Smyth, Steve Rabasca, and Dan DelVecchio for being the coolest band ever and making me seem a lot more awesome than I actually am!

Thanks again Carrie Lane for doing this interview.
