Kris Dane has built up an impressive musical carreer over the past 15 years as a singers/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. In the 90’s he played with bands such as dEUSand Manic Depression (with Stef Kamil Carlens, currently the lead singer of Zita Swoon), and a few other side projects of his own.Read More
In 1997 he released his first solo album, ended up in the finals of the national Humo’s Rock Rally contest and started touring Europe and the UK with his band. At the same time he was asked to host a series of very popular jam session nights at a hip ’ bar called "L’Archiduc" in Brussels, Belgium.
The success of these nights was overwhelming. He also composed for an opera ("A Winter’s Tales" by Shakespeare and rearranged by Philippe Boesmans) and toured Europe with this piece, accompanied by a symphonic orchestra and the jazz trio Aka Moon. Many experiences richer, and having gained notoriety and respect in different genres he was asked by the contemporary music group Ictus to sing two operas composed by Tom Waits ("The Black Rider" and "Frank’s Wild Years"), and rearranged with the blessing of the man himself.
He kept touring the entire world from Scandinavia to Asia with this very prestigious and ambitious project for a few years. Meanwhile he had released his second solo album and some time later also a conceptual double electro album called Private Lee-The Alphabet with 26 songs and available only on vinyl. In 2003 he joined the rock band Ghinzuas an additional member to work on their breakthrough album Blow and to tour intensively during three years. With Ghinzu he played in front of huge crowds, visited most big European festivals and supported artists such as Iggy Pop and Marilyn Manson on several occasions.
After this experience and after having produced the album of his friend Jef Mercelis he decided to fully dedicate himself to his solo career by recording the first album of a -Brooklyn bound- trilogy.
