Past Live Shows
Although learning rock licks of the 1980’s, Jeff couldn’t help but write his own music and didn’t realize what an impact his earlier years growing up had on him. Jeff Lane now smiles while he reminisces weekends as a kid browsing through his late mother’s big wooden stereo cabinet filled with albums, amazed by the artwork of the 70’s. “Every weekend, the house was filled with Bob Seger, Eagles, Elton John, Jim Croce, the Commodores, you name it!” Today, it’s pretty safe to say that Jeff Lane isn’t stuck in any genre in particular as he mashes together hot acoustic guitar with anything from soul & blues to “grassy” country, or even pop and rock.
As a songwriter, Jeff’s material is “mostly-true” as he spent most of his adult life collecting material, all while developing dozens of bars and nightclubs all over the Eastern US, never truly realizing his talents for songwriting. At the age of 40 with constant urging of his best friends, Jeff recorded a record, “Where the Buffalo Roam” and then released it at his very first gig with his band HUNDRED ACRES. Since then, the group has release their sophomore album “Feels Good” and are currently tracking pieces of their third. In 2013 after more than 150 shows with his band, Jeff started traveling to other cities weekly, returning home in the wee-hours of the morning to go to work, just to get involved in regional songwriter nights and hone his craft. Since then, Jeff Lane been accepted into several areas as a well-respected songwriter and performer. Jeff now hopes to take his passion further with his creative approach to songwriting by collaborating with accomplished writers who can help build on his talents.
In 2014, after the release of two Hundred Acres records and hundreds of shows, Jeff's longtime friend and musical mentor Quentin Horton sent him on a simple mission ... to "go out there and do what you do"..
Seemingly a simple task, it has already proven to be quite the adventure!
Jeff is now fronting his long-term band Hundred Acres as well as his newest project the Real Life Heavies and touring all over as a songwriter in various lineups!

In late 2018, the trio caught the eye of Grammy Award Winning producer, Mitch Dane, while playing a show at a bar on a slow Sunday night in Nashville. Long story short: it was meant to be. TOWNE was looking for a producer that could capture their live sound on tape and Mitch was looking for a band with a live sound the he wanted to capture. Soon after, sessions were booked at Mitch’s Nashville studio, Sputnik Sound.
In early 2019, TOWNE’s fans came together, organizing two fundraising concerts to finance the recording of the band’s first full-length album, “In The In Between”. The album is set for release in August of 2019.
"In the House" at the Grinder House is broadcast live on WFMC Jams every Friday from 6-8pm central.
