"Zane & Rosie"

An angelic female voice duetting with a male gravel-gargeler (if that’s a word) – ever since Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra set the standard for this musical template, our world has been enriched by tracks from Serge & Jane, Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue and countless gothic metal bands. Canadian singer-songwriter Zane, who sounds a lot like Lanegan, teamed up with the lovely miss Rosie Komadina, who calls herself a Croatian gypsy and producer on Twitter, to sing a part English, part French track that’s best summed up in these lines: ‘My mama said if you roll with the gamblers you’ll pay their debts/And sometimes you’ll run into black cats and a few regrets.’ Listen to it on their Bandcamp page (link below). By the way, if you’re into Lee Hazlewood, check out the superbe re-issue of his duets with (among others) Ann-Margret on Light In The Attic, here. - Filles Sourires



With his first guitar lesson at the age of ten, Zane knew that music would be his passion. He put his first band together in high school to perform at the school's yearly talent show. "That was a terrible performance," says Zane laughingly, adding, "but we had a great time doing it." One thing he knew for sure was that he would continue with his love for music.

When asked about what inspires him to write a song he says, "Life. Every event in your life, good or bad, can be made into a song. Learning how to tap into the right emotions about that event is what will make it a better song."

In March 2005, Zane began recording his debut CD titled 'Stages' with producer Albert Chambers (Moist, David Usher, Simple Plan). To compliment the album, two music videos were released for the songs, ‘Lost’ and ‘A Story’.

After much traveling, personal and promotional, and frequent collaborations with other songwriters, October 2008 saw Zane return to studio, again with producer Albert Chambers, to begin recording his second album titled, “Wheels of Time”. “When working with Albi, I found that you just can’t match the energy, laughs, and creativity anywhere”, says Zane about Albert Chambers who also co-wrote the new album.

Zane was recently the focus of an exclusive industry screening event held at the Director’s Guild of Canada. The event consisted of an evenly split group of individuals from the film, television and radio industry and was meant to showcase Zane’s new album and his music video concepts. His material was positively received and as a result two film director’s expressed interest in working with him. Subsequently, two music videos from the new album have been released and one other is scheduled to be produced.

Aside from enjoying radio and club play in Europe, Canada and the U.S., Zane has performed in festivals from Miami, USA to Mozambique, Africa. His music has been used by well known fashion companies, Canadian television and film productions and can also be heard on multiple TV shows on MTV, E!TV and other major television networks in the United States. In his spare time, he writes musical scores for various documentaries and short films. He is also a video editor and photographer. Zane currently divides his time between Europe, Africa and Canada.

Zane's musical influences, among others, range from the originally haunting and melodic sounds of Pink Floyd, David Bowie, U2, Queen, and The Beatles to the great storytelling lyrics of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Bono, Leonard Cohen, and Morrissey. Some other artists that can be heard on Zane’s MP3 player are Muse, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Amy Winehouse, Coldplay, Johnny Cash, Manu Chao, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Goran Bregovic, Soundgarden, Robi Draco Rosa and Gotan Project.

His music can be described as rock/contemporary rock with moody melodic arrangements.
