“While Canada’s East Coast is perhaps best known for exporting artists of the fiddle and folk variety, Halifax’s The Blue Lane is definitive proof that jazz is alive and well in the region. Rather than conforming to the traditional notion of jazz, The Blue Lane intertwines its songs with a unique amalgam of rockabilly, blues, indie, and pop music, resulting in a sound that is both forward-thinking and refreshing. ”
“In their typical fashion, it’s a fusion of a few genres, ranging from the blues rock that features prominently in the song’s guitar solo, to The Dandy Warhols-like matter-of-fact delivery of the lyrics.” - Alex Cook
