Zane Carney - dubbed “The Future Of Electric Guitar” by Huffington Post - is a Singer-Songwriter and GRAMMY® Nominated Guitarist, most known for his work with John Mayer, Avril LaVigne, Broadway's “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark” and LA Based Rock Band CARNEY. Zane has worked with countless icons including Bono and Edge, David Foster, Justin Timberlake, and Don Was and has shared the stage with Keith Urban, Steven Tyler, Jackson Browne, Nicole Scherzinger, Stevie Wonder and many, many more.
In 2013 John Mayer handpicked Zane - sans audition - to play guitar in his touring band and on his album “Paradise Valley.” While in Brazil for Rock in Rio, Zane released his debut EP Confluence and discovered a world-wide audience for his solo music. As of today, Zane has headlined shows in Japan, Australia, Korea, Mexico, most of Europe and of course his hometown(s) of NYC and LA where he plays to sold out theaters without the aid of a label.
While Bono of U2 has referred to Zane as “the best guitarist in NY,” it’s clear that Zane’s passion for singing and songwriting has found listening ears and a buzz that’s continuing to grow. That notoriety has lead to Zane co-writing multiple songs with Avril LaVigne for her upcoming 2018 release and opening for and playing in Jonny Lang's band in Europe, US, and Canada.
Bob Lefsetz raved about Zane’s band CARNEY, calling the group’s music "a mysterious trip into the heart of darkness,” but Zane’s solo work is a bit more understated, story driven and, naturally, grounded in his world class, virtuosic guitar abilities. A modern day Jeff Buckley, as many have called him, Zane likes to keep comparisons at bay, “I’m not quite sure who or what I sound like, but I’m always grateful when people compare me to artists that I love, whether it's Jeff or Django [Reinhardt] or Jimmy Page or someone else; always consider it an honor. I’m just excited about continuing to grow as an artist so I can reach people with what I hope is art worthy of their listening ears.”
