HUNDRED ACRES / Bio

In 2010, literally from out of nowhere, Jeff Lane and HUNDRED ACRES emerged with their first record and released it at their first gig! After realizing that his music wasn't meant to be kept secret any longer, Lane decided to reinvent himself by releasing a culmination of music he'd been building behind closed doors for 20 years. Since literally nobody knew that he even played guitar, he knew the music would have to be more than anyone would have ever expected. From there, he assembled a brave crew of musicians and recorded a record which was released on his 40th birthday under the guidance of producer Quentin Horton. "Where the Buffalo Roam" changed the songwriting scene in Kingsport Tennessee, blending sounds of 20 years into the stories that just needed to be told. Since then, HUNDRED ACRES has been turning heads with their high-energy, mountain based soul-country sounds. From the first clanky guitar chord from Jeff's vintage electric archtop to the screaming Quentin Horton telecaster guitar solos, these boys will keep your attention. Foot stompin', dancin', hollerin' and cluckin' are all standard at HUNDRED ACRES shows. It all comes from the ability to cross over genres and vocalists (5 in the band), blending Americana and country, with the sounds of 70's rock, Texas-boogie, classic soul and even a splash of blues! Harmonies and hot musicianship are very memorable strengths of the show, accompanied by the amazing seemingly endless selection of original material that sounds like you should already know it! HUNDRED ACRES has appeared on radio and TV shows including WDVX's "Blue Plate Special", Knox ivi's "11 O'Clock Rock, WJHL TV11 in Johnson City and WCYB TV5 in Bristol and celebrates has cuurently played over 150 shows, frequenting festivals and making guest appearances at hot spotlight venues. The "HeRD" as they're referred to by close fans, migrated in 2013 to a showcase in Nashville at the world famous Silver Dollar Saloon on 2nd Ave and has started collaborating with two different Nashville artists since. "It's been a wild ride" says Lane, "but I wouldn't change a thing!" Their freshman record, "Where the Buffalo Roam" featured the session work of Grammy-Award winning guitarist Tim Stafford of Blue Highway and the unbelievable fiddle-playing of Kevin Jackson, from Wolf Creek, and the sophomore record "Feel's Good" was an instant hit among local and regional fans and has made airplay on several stations. It would be fair to say that this show is fresh to the eyes and ears, and not to be taken lightly. When asked why he writes songs in different genres, Lane replies; "All great stories deserve the perfect soundtrack. Thunderchicken is a story about my old 1976 Thunderbird that I drove around in the late 80's with my buddies, and the 8 track in the dash played whatever I could find to put in it... I can remember the moments that go with the songs and I just want them to sound right...... like they sound in my head when I think about them. One thing is for sure, everybody that comes to a show leaves with an experience, and usually a HUNDRED ACRES sticker on their butt!"
