Lane Howard’s Crime of Passion, an acoustic roux of Americana, roots-rock, folk, blues, tongue-in-cheek-adventures, lies and sarcastic political expectations.

Hailing from Texas, Lane Howard is a singer/songwriter who blends flattop picking and old world harmonies to create a signature acoustic sound reflective of traditional musical styles. Lane Howard is a self-taught musician whose skill and talents playing the guitar, dobro, mandolin, ukulele and piano frame the innovation behind his singular music style.

Growing up in a household where his mother sang opera and his father saturated the air with his love of big band, swing and jazz music, Lane embarked upon his artistic passions during his most poignant childhood years.

Early in life he garnered the notion that as human beings we all have shared experiences and illustrates these experiences as they stem from the situations and circumstances that frame everyday life. Lane moved to Los Angeles, finding an array of opportunities to perform live at various coffee house and music festival venues. These experiences led to securing a position editing for NBC Television’s Access Hollywood which led to writing background music for Access Hollywood stories.

Writing all the songs on his critically acclaimed debut CD, Crime Of Passion, the album has been widely received by college, AAA, Americana and NPR radio stations, spawning four charted AMA singles, Mama Said, Old Cyrus Brown, I Will Survive and the album’s title track.

A finger picked acoustic roux of Americana, roots-rock, folk, blues, tongue-in-cheek-true-life-adventures, outright lies and sarcastic political expectations sung in a finely simmered baritone stew that leaves you hungry for more.
