After joining the military in his twenties, Michael Lane was forced to face the cruelty and ugliness of war after being sent to Iraq and Afghanistan as a U.S. solider. Returning home, he realized he wanted to devote his life to music. With four full-length albums under his belt, Lane returns with another single “Fire In The Night”, a tribute to his found freedom following his exit from the military.
“After I got out of the army, a group of friends and I went hiking and camping in the smokey mountains. I remember how amazing it was, out in nature, in the middle of this beautiful gorge. “Fire In The Night” is a kind of tribute to that time. Being in the army was being in a prison, and getting out and going camping was the escape. I remember how we made masks from tree bark and danced around the campfire at night, dancing, singing and sharing a bottle of merlot, I’ll never forget it! We are the light in the darkness, no job or status defines who we truly are”.
With a charming, rustic glow, Lane creates a nostalgic and warm experience that brings out the excitement and serenity of a euphoric evening under the stars. Listen below:
