Thanks so much for taking the time to check out the Pledge Campaign for the next chapter in my STRAIGHT TO VIDEO adventure!
My name’s Rob Lane, some of you know me as Laney and some may know me as the bass player for the band TCC. In the past I’ve played bass with the likes of THE BULLETBOYS and 90’s Pop Supremos LET LOOSE. More recently you could have seen me on tour with PEOPLE ON VACATION, or heck, some of you may not know me at all and stumbled upon this by accident!
Outside of all the bands I play with, I have a project called STRAIGHT TO VIDEO. It’s my way of bringing together all the things I love, particularly the great films and music of the 80s / 90s along with all the great Pop Culture of the time! Last year I released the STV EP – a collection of Cover Versions from some of my favourite movie soundtracks. It was a LOT of fun and I was lucky enough to be able to drag along a bunch of special guest appearances from some of my incredibly talented musician friends to help make it sound good! When it was released I had no idea what to expect, so when people said how much fun it was, I knew I was onto something cool and wanted to do it all over again!
This brings us to where we are right now! STRAIGHT TO VIDEO has teamed up with the wonderful PLEDGE MUSIC.COM (who allow independent artists like myself the opportunity to pursue their own projects which may not be the current ‘in thing’ or what a Record Label is after, and in the process give fans something totally unique). I want to invite YOU to come join me right from the start as I begin work on the STV follow up! I want this to be bigger and better than before and I want YOU, the music fan, to see how it all comes together, be an actual part of it and have a lot of fun along the way.
My aim is to record 8 or 10 songs and split it equally between 80s & 90s film soundtracks – an A & B side if you like? I’m going deep, deep, deep (bad ‘Beverley Hills Cop’ reference) into some of my most loved films to see which songs would work and which I think I could put a cool twist on. A whole bunch of people have already stepped forward to play on the songs so this line-up is going to be great, believe me! With your help, you can make it as good as what I’ve got up in my head.
Please take a second to look over some of Rewards listed on this page which you can receive in return for Pledging towards this project. I think I’ve come up with a collection of things which you’re gonna love! The coolest thing though is that you’ll be along for the ride, seeing behind the scenes how it all comes to together thanks to Exclusive Video Updates, Photos and Downloads.
Every single person that Pledges gets a ‘THANK YOU’ in the artwork credits, that’s EVERYONE – no extra cost. Plus, when the project is funded, part of the profits will be donated to help research into Autism so everyone wins! But, if it doesn’t get funded you don’t pay anything, it’s as simple as that.
So, please check out all the great exclusives that are on offer, I hope you can find something you like and with Pledge Music you can always come back and add something at a later date!
THANK YOU for your continued support in all the projects I do and THANK YOU for listening and helping me make this happen, it’s going to be a LOT of fun!!!!
