Zane Carney is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter, most known for his work with John Mayer, CARNEY, and Broadway’s “Spider Man -Turn Off The Dark.” Zane has shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, and Roy Hargrove, appeared on Oprah, Ellen, and David Letterman, opened for U2, Fergie, and The Black Crowes with his band CARNEY, and worked collaboratively with Bono & The Edge, David Foster, and Don Was. After a childhood stint as a series regular on network sitcom Dave’s World, Zane began performing guitar professionally at 12 years old, circling the blues club scene in Los Angeles while falling in love with jazz and improvisation along the way. As a freshman at USC’s Thornton School of Music, he was approached by David Foster to tour the world with up and coming jazz sensation Renee Olstead – a moment that solidified Zane’s career as a hired-gun guitarist; one that has included playing with house bands for network TV shows, signing to a major label (Interscope) via CARNEY, recording as a go-to guitarist for producers including the likes of Justin Timberlake, and touring the world many times over with artists in a plethora of genres. More recently, John Mayer handpicked Zane to play guitar in his touring band and “Paradise Valley”, sans audition, after Mayer discovered Zane’s guitar playing online. Fast forward to present day and Zane has stepped out as a solo artist, writing, performing and singing his own material to sold out audiences on the east and west coast. A recent weekly stint at The Hotel Cafe in LA was extended by the club three times turning what was supposed to be simple month of shows to develop new material into a 5 month residency of standing room only performances – evidence that the transition from gunslinger to frontman has not been in vain. Although Bono of U2 may have referred to Zane as “the best guitarist in NY” during his stint at Spider-Man on Broadway, it’s clear that Zane’s passion for singing and songwriting has found listening ears and a buzz that’s continuing to grow. As the awakening unfolds, comparisons to the industry chatter surrounding the release of John Mayer’s debut EP “Inside Wants Out” has been somewhat serendipitously drawn…Bob Lefsetz raved about Zane’s Rock band CARNEY, likening the band’s sound to “a mysterious trip into the heart of darkness.”
