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 of U2, David Foster, Justin Timberlake, and Don Was and has shared the stage with Steven Tyler, Jackson Browne, Stevie Wonder and many, many more.
Zane has headlined shows in Japan, Australia, Korea, Mexico, Europe, and many cities across the USA including his hometowns of NYC and LA, and his former Interscope-signed band CARNEY was lauded by industry greats including Jimmy Iovine and Bob Lefsetz while opening for everyone from U2 to Gov’t Mule to Fergie.
While Bono has referred to Zane as “the best guitarist in NY,” it’s clear that Zane’s passion for singing and songwriting is gaining equal buzz amongst industry greats and fans alike. This notoriety has opened many new doors, including co-writing on Avril LaVigne’s album “Head Above Water” and opening for Jonny Lang across the globe.
Outside of being one of the most in demand guitarists in the industry and a full fledged solo artist in his own right, Zane also has two new projects that are quickly gaining steam. One is EVAN + ZANE which is a new band formed with Award Winning Actor/Singer Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) that blends her charismatic, other-worldly vocals with Zane’s film-score meets jazz-phenom brand of rock and roll . The other is zane carney / tommy king: a new scoring partnership with GRAMMY® Nominated Pianist Tommy King that explores musical storytelling in an inventive new way.
Zane has four solo releases on Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Play including his jazz guitar album Amalgam, singer-songwriter debut Confluence, Live In Tokyo: The Bootlegs and scoring project Film.
During quarantine, Zane is streaming at twitch.tv/zanecarney 5 days a week, gaining a significant audience due to his best in class streaming setup featuring 1080p/60fps cinematic visuals, mastered-record audiophile sound and blistering guitar work all balanced by Zane’s disarming relatability.
