Feeling a bit camera shy


Zane grew up in Central California. Music was very limited where he was from and the first song he heard was from K.C. & the Sunshine Band at the age five. No one in his family was musically inclined. When MTV was introduced through the media, he started to soak in anything that aired. He was particularly drawn to heavy metal music. After several years playing air guitar in the mirror, he decided to pick up a real guitar at the age of 18. Over the years he played in a few garage metal bands, but nothing came of these endeavors. Despite the fact that he met Jeff Buckley in Seattle through a chance encounter he didn’t discover Jeff's music until 1999. Zane’s vocal experience was limited to singing in the shower and in the car. Zane’s idea to sing publicly changed when close friend Jason McCullough, singer of the band SP Unlimited, passed away. The remaining bandmates of SP Unlimited and Zane decided to form the Jeff Buckley Tribute Band called MojoPin in 2002, in memory of Jason, who was a fan of Jeff’s music. After MojoPin broke up, Zane has been performing solo gigs at various locations around Seattle and Portland. He is currently working on starting an original line–up with tracks to be released in 2005.
