New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Think Tank Media)
The reviews are in for the latest CD by symphonic rock heroine Lana Lane. Rock journalists worldwide have given Lane's re-entry into the fold - the long-awaited, 10-song tour-de-force "El Dorado Hotel" - a very warm reception.
Hartranft at Danger Dog states:
"It's good to welcome back Lana Lane, after a four year absence, and her fine new studio album, El Dorado Hotel. Once more Ms. Lane sounds incredible; she's one of the great pure melodic rock vocalists on the planet….Lana Lane's El Dorado is pure musical magic, another wonderful display of her beautiful voice, and the music is damn fine, too."
Tommy Hash at Ytsejam remarks:
"…..there is a lot going on within the whole 'compositional approach,' [on Lana Lane's "El Dorado Hotel"] where the songs really breathe, and who better to front them. Overall the album is produced extremely well, you can hear everything, and that's saying a lot considering all the musicians involved - if only all of these other prog bands could follow suit."

LANA LANE is an accomplished rock vocalist with a long history of albums and tours. Born in Concord, California to a musical family, Lana grew up with a balanced diet of both rock music and big band swing music. Since music was always in the house, singing came very naturally to Lana, and she started singing in bands straight out of high school. To forward her career, Lana moved to Los Angeles in the late 80s where she met her husband / producer Erik Norlander.
Lana has been dubbed as "The Queen
Rock" by her fans and the press, and yet she remains a very versatile artist able to move from intimate jazz pieces (Ballad Collections, Winter Sessions) to bone crushing progressive metal (Secrets of Astrology, Lady Macbeth, etc.). But in the end it is Lana's love of melody and artistry that reigns over all. Lana is a dedicated artist who approaches her craft with grace and integrity.
