Meagan Lane and Geoff de Mers grew up in the 50âs and 60âs during one of the most musically rich periods in the evolution of American Pop Music.
It was a time when Rock-a-Billy, Doo Whop, R&B, Tejano, Calypso, Cowboy Music (C&W), Swing, Rock and Roll, Folk and Folk Rock could be heard on commercial radio.
Starting as an acoustic duo in 1978 they matured as performers, arrangers and songwriters. The recording studio afforded tools to explore musical textures. In Washington, DC, Meagan and Geoff sought out and worked with musicians from different countries and cultures. Through these associations and learning experiences their music evolved to incorporate World Beat Rhythms of West Africa, Latin America and the Celtic Isles, etc.
As a result Meagan and Geoff have developed one of the most interesting and fresh sounds to come out of the Metro DC area. The âPoliticianâs All Singâ CD represents snapshots in time from 1985 to 1995, the evolution of the Duo into the 2nd Story Band. The journey begins as interpretations and arrangements of songs and ends with mature, finely crafted songwriting on their album of Power Folk, Blues, Tribal, Alternative and World Beat originals.
Eve Ziebart of The Washington Post said of the originals on this CD: âFIRST RATE 2ND STORY WOMAN â¦ Laneâs voice is a constant surprise - sweet, arch, rough, wanton and worldly in turn â¦ the melodies are fresh and the lyrics both catchy and, yes, educated.â
And Laura Outerbridge of The Washington Times said: â2nd Story Band swerves from light metal guitar riffs of âthe Politicians All Singâ to a bouncy African High Life groove on âThe Prince of Chapel Streetâ and âDerby Hatâ â¦ A kind of bluesy-calypso mood takes over on âYouâre So Coolâ, âThe Boyâ and especially Larry Williamsâ âJunior Behave Yourselfâ. I found myself returning to the High Life cuts, though, since the sound is so unexpected on a Pop-rock album. Mr. De Mers handles the bright, nuancy guitar style well, while drummer, Wes Crawford and Miss Lane on bass contribute a spare, propulsive rhythm. Miss Laneâs expressive vocals certainly get her point across.
And Q Rod of Scene Magazine said: âMeaganâs sultry voice is only enhanced by the curious and provoking lyrics she emits. Catchy. The band which could be a solid opener for the likes of Gloria Estafan, backs her with a wide variety of haunting harmonies and with a soothing style.
