Erica Lane hails from Saint John, New Brunswick. Growing up in the small community of Lorneville her parents always encouraged her in music with vocal and piano lessons being a must. Erica’s ease and comfort with public speaking and her passion for interacting and engaging children make her a natural in the children’s entertainment industry. Children respond well to her enthusiastic, fun loving and warm personality.

After spending countless hours attending live children’s shows and performances with her own 2 young sons, Erica saw the need for this type of entertainment in Saint John and realized this would definitely be an adventure she would like to pursue.

Around this same time friend and neighbour, Steve Zaat had been sharing some of his original music with Erica’s preschool students. She was impressed with how receptive the children were to his catchy tunes and lyrics. Thus the plan for providing quality children’s entertainment was hatched. Their first official performance as a duo called Zany Lane was at Seawood School in June 2008. Children and adults alike continue to enjoy Zany Lane's fun, educational, interactive, family oriented show.
