Soda Cracker Jesus is the rock n roll brainchild of singer-songwriter-producer Regan Lane.
SCJ’S references are easy to draw, from a beefed-up Beatles or punked-out Kinks to those who took that sound forward including Robyn Hitchcock, Julian Cope, XTC, Anton Barbeau, and many more. What you will find once the needle hits the wax is effortless grooves and lush harmonies along with a relentless drive of clattering and cool backbeats and attitude. Energy meets euphoria in a two and half minute sonic workout.
Regan Lane has been a mainstay in the Northwest music scene for a number of years. In a land and time long ago, Lane was a core member of the legendary Tacoma punk band Baby Knockors and then made numerous records with popular 80’s rockers Strypes in between their tours of Japan.
Currently, besides Soda Cracker Jesus, Lane is the frontman /ringmaster for Psych-rockers Strangely Alright and their Eclectic Traveling Minstrel Magic Music Medicine Show.
He recently helped produce the new album Butterfly Hand Grenade for up-and-coming rockers Stargazy Pie and is an active mentor in the successful Ted Brown Music Program, helping aspiring northwest musicians to hone their craft.
Regan was also the creator and host of an interview-style TV show, Strangely Alright TV, and the co-writer of a theme song for the True Fidelity radio show.
Many of Regan’s original compositions have had placement and airplay on numerous TV shows throughout the US, including A&E’s Biography, NBC Sports, VH1’s Top Twenty Countdown, Best Week Ever and his composition U Won’t Believe was heard on NBC’s Race Across America and was also the theme song for Puget Sound’s TV, a Northwest TV show featuring local and national indie artists.
