Lana Lane is an American rock singer. She sings lead in her eponymous band, and has sung backing vocals for the band Rocket Scientists and guest sung on Ayreon and Erik Norlander albums.[1]

She is married to music producer Erik Norlander, who co-produces her albums with her at their own studio, Think Tank Media in Placerville, California.

Her first album Love is an Illusion was released in 1995 and obtained a fair amount of success in Japan, as did Curious Goods – her second album, from 1996.

Lady Macbeth is a collection of songs based on William Shakespeare's tragedy Macbeth, from Lady MacBeth's point of view.

Lane appeared as a guest vocalist on two Ayreon CDs, Universal Migrator Part 1: The Dream Sequencer and Universal Migrator Part 2: Flight of the Migrator, singing lead and harmony vocals. She also provided the computer voice for both albums.

In 2003, Lane sang the part of Queen Guinevere on the concept album Once and Future King Part I by Gary Hughes.

In 2007, Lane released "Red Planet Boulevard", her 9th studio album. It was recorded in the Netherlands and San Francisco, California.

In 2009, Lane sang the primary vocals on Terra Incognita, an album composed by husband Erik Norlander in collaboration with science-fiction writer and lyricist Kevin J. Anderson.

In 2009, Lane also sang on another concept album composed by cousin Davy Vain based on a novel by German science-fiction writer Wolfgang Hohlbein, for the CD Blaze and Ashes by Delany.

In 2012, Lane released "El Dorado Hotel" after a five-year hiatus due, in part, to the death of her father.
