Hailing from Victoria and Tasmania, Market Lane is a vocal trio based in Melbourne, VIC, Australia.
In 2014, fuelled by a long day of study and a dash of red wine, the girls first came together. Inspired by a midnight session of free improvisation, they began meeting regularly to see what other sounds they could create.
Exploring many different genres, this trio has landed somewhere between folk and pop, taking large influence from West African and Indian music as well as the jazz tradition. A blend of vocal harmonies, various percussion, and an occasional guitar or double bass thrown in, these girls produce a sound which is both vulnerable and full.
With a common love for improvisation, lyricism and evocative harmonies, the girls quickly began sharing their music. In doing so, they aimed to explore the voice as an instrument, as well as the most natural form of human expression. This ranges from original music, to contemporary covers, to traditional pieces from across the globe.
Market Lane has performed at a range of music festivals such as Ballarat SpringFest , Knox Festival, Spring Street Beat Festival and has been featured as special guests at AUSACA’s Get Vocal Festival. They were named “Best Unique Musical Find” of 2014 by Spreading the Seed and continue to perform at venues throughout Melbourne, VIC, and Tasmania.
With the launch of TRAIN LINE SESIONS, 2017 will see Market Lane collaborating with a number of local Australian and international artists for a very special video series. So, watch this space (literally, watch it).
