The Robin Lane Band @ Bull Run
March 10 @ 8:00 pm
Don’t miss the riveting and shiver-inducing Robin Lane showcase her musical artistry with her band at the Bull Run on March 10.
Robin’s new album, Dirt Road to Heaven is available on Boston’s Red on Red Records. The album’s theme, writes Boston Herald’s Brett Milano “is she’s still the musical friend who’ll join you walking that dirt road.” He loves the album’s inspirational range of music: “Country on ‘Rodeo Clown,’ rockabilly on ‘Hard Life,’ full-throttle Byrds on ‘Sunshine Blue Skies.’ There’s also a couple of shiver-inducing ballads that show her ever-increasing warmth and range….(and) a few helpings of sly humor (see ‘Last Cute Minute’).”
CBS TV/Sirius XM’s Bill Flanagan told Robin, “I think it might be the best record you’ve ever made.”
“Woman Like That” is Robin’s current music video. It features Appalachian-influenced music with a story line of a stalker. Watch it HERE

Dirt Road To Heaven is a collection of Americana music that sounds great alongside artists such as Brandi Carlile and Joan Baez. Robin’s motto of “Music is my healing tool” has paved her uniquely uplifting “dirt road to heaven” process from the get-go. Her journey has become even more effective and powerful, locally and globally, this century.
Part of the Laurel Canyon music community in the late 1960s, Robin she collaborated with members of Crazy Horse and sang with Neil Young on “Round and Round (It Won’t Be Long)” on his album Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere.
In the late 1970s, Robin Lane moved from LA to Boston and formed the now legendary Robin Lane & the Chartbusters. Their sound integrated punk and new wave influences, along with West Coast folk and East Coast Rock. They recorded three albums for Warner Brothers Records: “When Things Go Wrong” became the 11th music video played on MTV on its first broadcast day in 1981.
Robin accepted the Boston Music Award for Outstanding Female Vocalist in 1988. In 1990 Susanna Hoffs (The Bangles) recorded Robin’s “Wishing on Telstar” for her first solo album, When You’re a Boy. Robin also sang on the album. In 1996, Robin released the album Cat Bird Seat, which showed her evolution into a subdued and (at times) “country-fied” sound that her super fan describes as “the angry machine that was the Chartbusters.” In 2020, during the Pandemic she released Instant Album.
In late 2021, Robin signed with indie label Red on Red Records, a cool new imprint out of Boston featuring Americana, powerpop, punk and alt-rock music, focused on supporting strong women creators. Label owner Justine Covault says, “Robin writes unflinchingly honest songs that reflect the light and the dark in the world. Her voice is distinctive and gorgeous. And she is absolutely riveting as a live performer – when she plays and sings, the audience is spellbound. I’m honored and thrilled that she is joining the Red on Red roster family.”
Robin’s song “All I’ll Ever Need” has been released as a single and “Hard Life” from the new Dirt Road To Heaven album will be released as a single July 28, as well as the Dirt Road To Heaven album itself.
OPENER: Girl with a Hawk – an American rock band led by Linda S. Viens. Band lineup includes Boston Rock veterans Richard Lamphear, Daniel Coughlin, Nancy Delaney, and Dan Bernfeld.
