1. Welcome to LivingTheVanLife! For those who may not know you, can you state your name and your role in the band?
My name is Jake Galambos and I am the guitarist for the Phoenix, Arizona based band Lane Change, and my name is Cameron Holladay and I am the drummer for Lane Change.
2. If your band were to be trapped in a horror movie, what would each member’s role be?
Jake: I would be the instigator. The guy who is like “Oh come on guys, just because there are dead bodies and blood everywhere doesn’t mean it’s not safe to go into that house.”
Cameron: I think Lizzie would be the perfect “bad idea girl” or like “danger prone Daphanie” from Scooby Doo! The character that everyone yells at the screen, “Girl don’t go in there, or open that door,” but she just has to!
Jake: Cam, you would be the person that always hears or sees something, but nobody else does! Like a floating candle, or a ghost reflection in a mirror! And, Myles would be the brave hero, dragon slayer type of character who’s like…”Gimmie that damn knife, you’re gonna hurt somebody!” Ha
3. Who in the band would make it to the sequel?
We all live to do the sequel, but this time Lizzie is a zombie, because she died in the first one!
4. In three words, how would you describe your music?
Passionate, Meaningful and Honest
5. Earlier this year, you released your EP Rise, which song off the EP would you recommend to someone checking out your band for the first time? Why?
Cam: “The Rich Get Richer.” This is the most “Lane Change” of all our songs. Catchy guitar riffs, big vocals, pounding drums, rock.
6. Which song off the EP were you most excited for fans to hear?
“Floodwater.” This song really means the most to us. It was a powerful experience writing and recording it, and we think it’s going to be a powerful experience listening to it too.
7. How do you feel the response to the EP has been so far?
Jake: We’ve been really excited by the reactions to Rise. We went all out with this one, really trying to capture the excitement and energy we have at our live shows. So far people are responding to it!
8. What do you want listeners to take away after they listen to the EP?
Cam: We would like listeners to feel our passion come through in the music. We would hope that they also hear something that they feel they can relate to in some way, personally or emotionally, and really that they like what we are doing enough to buy our music, tell their friends about us, and come out to see us live. If we get one of those takeaways or all three, we’ll be happy.
9. What is your most memorable moment while writing/recording the EP?
Jake: Tracking “Floodwater,” Lizzie and Myles got in the vocal booth together for the first time. Not just recording on the same song, but literally the two of them on the same mic at the same time. They were singing the harmonies together, then one would step up for a lead then trade to the other. It was really a special moment. It’s easy to feel isolated in the isolation booth (ha) and seeing them in there vining together was magic!
10. Thank you for doing this interview! Before we go, is there anything that you would like to say to our readers?
We hope that you will check us out on all of our social media sites which are all tagged as “lane change rocks.” We hope that our music has some positive impact on people’s day, and we hope to have the opportunity to personally thank every and anyone who has supported us so far someday in the future.
