PopImpressKA Journal for a teen sensation singer/songwriter Carrie Lane.
Carrie Lane was born and raised in Montclair, NJ, just outside NYC. At the age of just 4-years old, she auditioned for, and won, the lead of Wendy in Peter Pan. On opening night, Carrie forgot her lines. When she finally found her words, her voice was so small, the audience could barely even hear her. For most, this experience would have resulted in a flood of tears. But, this was not the case for Carrie. The overwhelming joy of simply being on stage and performing dwarfed any negative feelings and in that moment, a star was born.
Beautiful on the inside as well as the outside, Carrie was sought after by MSA Modeling Agency and immediately offered a contract. Since then she has become the face of Bangz, recently winning a competition for the spa chain's search for an individual making a difference in their community and who exemplifies the belief that beauty comes from within. The prize was a cash donation to the charity of the winner's choice. Carrie donated the money to juvenile diabetes, a cause she is passionate about, as she herself suffers from the disease.
Carrie never saw her diagnosis as a struggle, but rather a source of strength and motivating factor to help others through her music. "If just one person likes my music and it helps them find clarity in some aspect of their life, I am satisfied."
"My favorite thing to write about is the world through my eyes. Nobody views the world through the same lens that you do and therefore you will always have a unique story to tell. One that nobody else has ever heard before."
In 2013 Carrie started working with TMMA Entertainment. Her team consists of Executive Producers Jarrett Zellea and Jennifer Bernstein, as well as Producer Ron Geffen, and Recording Engineer and Sound Designer Daniel Plante. This team has worked on Grammy Award winning Records and Emmy Award winning Television Shows. The team is currently writing and recording new material for Carrie's freshman album, scheduled to be released in 2014. Currently, Lane is touring with breakout artists, while continuing to hone her craft in the studio. Lane says of her writing experience, "The biggest hurdle I had to overcome in music is finding my voice and believing that I have one. I never thought I had a voice that anyone would want to hear until I found my inner confidence."
