Life In The Fast Lane With Margot Lane
Life In The Fast Lane With Margot Lane
What music first captured your ear and got you interested in music?
I've been listening to a diverse amount of music ever since I was a little girl. My mom and dad both had different tastes and moved me to also do the same. Everything from Elton John to the Carpenters and Blood, Sweat, and Tears. Growing up and developing an ear for music was very important to what I listen to. Now, its more than just music wallpaper; I feel deeply for the music I write and play.
Do you come from a background of training in the arts?
Not really; my training started when I really begged and pushed my family to take me to music lessons and pay for modeling trips around the country. I was more enthusiastic about it because I really wanted the lifestyle; the work that came was so much easier because of it.
How did you start working with your current band?
My band is really under my name; Margot Lane Music. I currently am doing an album of electronic styled instrumentals. It has a emphasis of ambient, industrial, and heavy piano/synth songs. The other project is a piano rock album featuring most of the musicians I play with in different bands now. Both albums will be out this year- very excited!
Do you prefer playing live or recording?
The recording is a completely different process; I can be creative and spend more time on the sound I'm digging for than live. However, the noise and energy from a crowd that is really into the music is hard to top. I think I feed off both in a different light.
Where is your favorite place to perform?
I must say of all the places I've played the one that I've enjoyed the most has been in an old theater. I play a lot of different styles of music and this past summer I played with the legendary Dick Dale in Plummer Auditorium, which from the inside looks like a old theater.
Has anything crazy ever happened at a show?
Hell yea! I was playing in a southern California metal band called Gods Weapon and we were playing a Toys For Tots benefit show. Sometime during our setup/ sound check some kids got crazy and ended up taking out 4 security guys. One of the security guys was bleeding from a gash in the head from the fight.
How did you get started modeling?
Started after i was found by a few modeling scouts back in Buffalo, NY. I worked as a model for a designer and ended up branching off from that with two of the agencies I was signed too.
What excites you about modeling?
I am more excited about it now that I've been doing for several years. I love the creative aspect I can bring to the table. I like having a little control over a shoot too. The object in the modeling business is to be a chameleon. Being diverse and keeping an open mind to different applications makes a huge difference in your success.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I have always loved putting on expensive dresses that have yards of skirt. I have also loved the many corsets I have been handed to walk the runway with.
What are your least favorites?
Anything pink , really. I can wear it and be professional but in a perfect world it wouldn't happen on me.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
This past year I got into sculpting. I've created a very interesting yet Gothic style, similar to Tim Burtons earlier creations. I currently have a series called "The Lonely Trees". The mediums are mostly different forms of high to flat wire and clay. I try to keep all my paints acrylic but I want to try some oil for a different series I have in mind.
What do you like to do for fun?
I can always be found out and around Sunset Blvd; checking out new bands or watching hockey at a few favorite bars. Since I'm from Buffalo I still am a huge Buffalo Sabres fan.
