Zane Carney Final FREE Concert Of The Summer in NYC! Tuesday, June 26th @ The Living Room
First off, long time no speak! I only e-mail this list about once or twice a year so how are the kids, what's the latest job like and do you love your new place?!
Second off, Tuesday, June 26th at 11pm I'll be playing a solo show at The Living Room in the Lower East Side of Manhattan and it will most likely be my last live show of the summer/year. I’m gonna be taking time off in hopes of finding the best way to release an album of my own original music, but more on that later...
I'm so excited about how this whole solo project is shaping up...it's starting to feel like Chet Baker meets Esperanza Spaulding meets Roy Buchanan with a crapload of all the other things I do as a guitarist in CARNEY as a good benchmark for where things are starting to head...
In fact, why don't I just give you a sample of the guitar music I've been writing! Here's a link to a YouTube video I just made of a brand new song called Diamonds:
Zane Carney Original Song - Diamonds
Speaking of which, at my June 26th show at The Living Room I'm going to be selling a 4 song EP that will include 3 ORIGINAL guitar compositions! This is the first time I'll be getting ANY of my music into people's hands and these exact recordings (as recorded by Chris Rondinella at Heritage Recording Company in Burbank and Mastered by Gavin Lurssen) will be showing up on my debut album whenever it comes out! I won't be selling these online or anywhere else though, so I'll have to see you at this (potentially) final show of the year to get you one...
With that in mind, I’d love to share this night of live music with you and your friends! Here are the details and if you know someone who lives in the city feel free to send 'em my way - I'll do my best to make it worth their while ;-)

Howdy freakin' doo! It's been a long time since I've sent a blast like this too all of you but I wanted to give some quick updates in the world of CARNEY and in my own musical endeavors!
You probably already know that our band CARNEY moved to NYC last year to work on Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark - yes, that Spider-Man, the one with the falls and the script changes and the fully pantless pit orchestra members...wait, one of those things is wrong but I can't remember which cause of jet lag...think it's number two...
Also, you might have heard that my brother Reeve is going to be starring as Jeff Buckley in an upcoming biopic that begins filming this spring! Can't think of a better person to play that role...
Anywho, because we're working so much in NYC I decided it was time to get my Solo Guitar Career going! I've been so fortunate to play with so many wonderful people in my life but I'm really excited about venturing out on my own and seeing what sort of things happen :-) Some of it will be in the jazz vein, some of it in the old world blues/rock vein, most of it will involve just one guitar, a good amount of pedals and hopefully some new ideas ;-)
So, I'm taking a three week break from Spidey to be in California and while I'm here (yes, I'm already here!) I'll be putting down ideas for my debut guitar record, playing solo shows up and down the coast and recording a jazz combo record with John Daversa! So excited about all of the new things on the horizon but most stoked about really getting my solo guitar stuff of the ground - and what better way to do that than by playing a bunch of live shows!
Here's info for my tour dates and links to some new YouTube videos to keep everyone abreast to what's going on! And, if you're a fan of CARNEY or know someone who is please let them know that even though CARNEY won't be able to make it to the West Coast for a long while, I'm in California and would love to give them at least a piece of CARNEY love while I'm here by having them/you at my shows!
