Bio

I got my start singing with Neil Young on "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere album. I then went on to form the band Robin Lane & The Chartbusters. RL & The Busters. Robin Lane and the Chartbusters recorded three albums for Warner Brothers Records: We received extensive national airplay and were among the first videos on the brand new MTV channel.
I have been teaching music, creativity, and songwriting since 1995. I live in the Pioneer Valley in Western MA. where I facilitate CD/Recording Seminars, to survivors of childhood physical and sexual abuse, domestic abuse and mental illness.
I continue to perform through out New England, New York, and the west coast. House Concerts are my specialty. I read from my memoirs, and sing songs from my RL and the Chartbusters as well as new songs and songs from the participants in my workshops.
My influences are many. First great influence was Laura Nyro. When I formed my band in 1979, I was listening to Patty Smith, Television, Tom Petty, Graham Parker. Now I listen to just about everything. But my main influence these days comes from the people I meet, social justice and political issues. Being alive on the planet. How do we come together with so many disparities. How do we build a better world? Through my non profit Songbird Sings, I am on a mission to help people understand the powerful healing transformation that can take place through music and particularly songwriting. Healing Trauma One Song At A Time.
I have to say that I have never done a House Concert that wasn't a success and didn't have people talking about it for days. This is what I've been told. So since we have to toot our own horn. At the end of my House Concerts I always have the audience contribute lyrics which I make up a song to on the spot. This is very interactive and is something that makes my performances unique, as well as the chapters I read from my spicy memoirs.
