Release Details


It Was Romance

Release Date: May 5, 2015



It Was Romance began as the solo project of Lane Moore during a period when she was spending entirely too much time in police office waiting rooms, and being told by therapists that she’d been through too much and no one could help her. She started using found and collected instruments, including an electric ukulele with a distortion pedal that she plays like an electric guitar, and her own voice as her form of dealing with things that were deemed too intense even for professionals.

After her music began garnering serious attention from UK radio stations that began putting her songs on rotation, and internet fans urging her to play shows live, she decided that while she could play as a one man band, she’d rather find a backing band who could help her fully realize the songs as big and bold as she’d heard them in her head. Years later, she found those people, adding Alejandro Triana on guitar, Angel Lozada on Drums, and Jeff Connors on bass.

Moore, who splits her time between constant songwriting, performing stand-up and storytelling at the biggest alternative comedy venues in NYC, and hosting a critically acclaimed comedy show where she goes on her Tinder account live in front of sold-out crowds, has also written for The Onion and McSweeney’s, and can frequently be seen telling jokes on VH1, Funny Or Die, and truTV.

It Was Romance’s self-titled debut full-length, was recorded and engineered by Eric Gorman at Vacation Island Studios, which looks like a place an eccentric woodsman would live.

It Was Romance will be released on May 5, 2015.
