The Vancouver-based Blues/Rock group The Jason Lane Band supplies elements of the past and the present for listeners to bask in their hard-hitting and groovy tunes.
Sure to captivate any audience, JLB consists of Jason Lane Amott, Chantal Sayers Amott, and Alex J Ritchie. Formed in 2019, the band contains a tight family chemistry, with brother and sister Jason and Chantal partnering up for the band's sweltering body of work. Chantal's vocals bring a sweet and sultry female powerhouse flair, perfectly complemented by the band's rare balance between catchy melodies and bluesy guitar work.
As the band member grew up listening to Rock 'N Roll, the genre was passionately and inevitably instilled into their sizzling sound, not to mention continuously shining a light on their appetite for gripping Blues. Their influences stem from the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Led Zeppelin, CCR, Colin James, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Bonamassa, and every band from the 80s and 90s. The group discovered their love for a hard-hitting Blues-Rock blend while Jason and Chantal were a part of the group Taboo Queen, playing a handful of old blues standards and modern contemporary blues. This in-depth musical past has perfectly carved the band's career path, landing them on their fiery and passionate Blues/Rock approach.
Jason Lane stated, "As a songwriter, I was able to evolve and discover new riffs, melodies, and a new style of play. JLB now has the best of both worlds, a complete mixture of everything we love, rock and blues." True to words, JLB brings back elements of the 80s and 90s and pushes the boundaries of modern-day blues-infused rock.
JLB released their second official EP, Wildcard in March 2021. This was a followup to the first EP released in 2020 titled Speed of Sound.
Experience JLBs scorching sound through their playful single "Speed of Sound", a slower and soulful shift through "Lights Down Low", or the deep and dark atmosphere within "Black Magic Woman”. The latest single has elements of all these and is called 'Don't Let The Blues Win'.
