Market Lane + Shannen James

Hailing from Victoria and Tasmania, Market Lane is a vocal trio now based in Melbourne, VIC.

In 2014, fuelled by a long day of study and a dash of red wine, the girls first came together. Inspired by a midnight session of free improvisation, they began meeting regularly to see what other sounds they could create.

Exploring many different genres, this trio has landed somewhere between folk and pop, taking large influence from West African and Indian music as well as the jazz tradition. A blend of vocal harmonies, various percussion, and an occasional guitar or double bass thrown in, these girls produce a sound which is both vulnerable and full.
