THE SHED SESSIONS (PREVIEWS)

by Steven Blane

The Shed Sessions was recorded in a shed in Lake Worth, Florida.

Stylistically, Blane fits in the Americana category. But there’s more going on in his music than simply Americana. There’s a pop influence in there, along with a 1950’s rock vibe that gives his sound a unique signature. It’s much different from the usual run-of-the-mill stuff most bands turn out today.
