Americans

Americans

Americans are the citizens and nationals of the United States of America. Although direct citizens and nationals make up the majority of Americans, many dual citizens, expatriates, and permanent residents could also legally claim American nationality. The United States is home to people of many racial and ethnic origins; consequently, American culture and law do not equate nationality with race or ethnicity, but with citizenship and an oath of permanent allegiance.

Rock and roll

Rock and roll

Rock and roll is a genre of popular music that evolved in the United States during the late 1940s and early 1950s. It originated from African-American music such as jazz, rhythm and blues, boogie woogie, and gospel, as well as country music. While rock and roll's formative elements can be heard in blues records from the 1920s and in country records of the 1930s, the genre did not acquire its name until 1954.

Blues

Blues

Blues is a music genre and musical form which originated in the Deep South of the United States around the 1860s. Blues incorporated spirituals, work songs, field hollers, shouts, chants, and rhymed simple narrative ballads from the African-American culture. The blues form is ubiquitous in jazz, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll, and is characterized by the call-and-response pattern of which the twelve-bar blues is the most common. Blue notes, usually thirds, fifths or sevenths flattened in pitch, are also an essential part of the sound. Blues shuffles or walking bass reinforce the trance-like rhythm and form a repetitive effect known as the groove.

Southern rock

Southern rock

Southern rock is a subgenre of rock music and a genre of Americana. It developed in the Southern United States from rock and roll, country music, and blues and is focused generally on electric guitars and vocals. Author Scott B. Bomar speculates the term "southern rock" may have been coined in 1972 by Mo Slotin, writing for Atlanta's underground paper, The Great Speckled Bird, in a review of an Allman Brothers Band concert.

Early life

Sebastian Lane was born to his father, the American blues artist, Jimmy D. Lane[1] and French mother, Isabelle. He is the grandson of Blues Hall of Fame inductee Jimmy Rogers, who gained prominence as the guitarist for the Muddy Waters Band.

Lane began playing guitar at age three. Growing up, he found influence and drew inspiration from his father and grandfather, as well as musicians such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Doyle Bramhall II, The Rolling Stones, Gary Clark Jr and Freddie King. Lane never took guitar lessons. He learned by ear, teaching himself by listening to various songs repetitively.

After the passing of his grandfather in 1997, the Lane family left Chicago, Illinois and moved to Salina, Kansas, where Sebastian's father was hired by Chad Kassem to work at Blue Heaven Studios and APO Records. Blue Heaven Studios and Kassem hosted a yearly festival known as "Blues Masters at the Crossroads".[2] This festival was geared towards bringing in blues musicians from the south and around the country who did not have much longer to live and share their art. Surrounded by this atmosphere further attracted Lane to blues culture and inevitably led him to pursue a similar path.

Since childhood, Lane has split his interests between music and following his passions for science and medicine. His interest in medicine arose after the passing of his grandfather, secondary to colon cancer. His family moved several more times before settling in Vancouver, Canada after his father remarried. Lane attended four high schools before graduating from Sullivan Heights Secondary School in the spring of 2011.

He enrolled at Hastings College, where he graduated with his Bachelor's degree in biology. He was then accepted at University of Nebraska Medical Center for medical school

He released his debut album Walkin' By Myself in July 2018 while on a rotation in Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Omaha.[3]
