Born in Beaumont, Texas on February 8, 1950, Lane grew up in a strictly religious but loving, caring family enviroment. One of nine brothers and sisters, Lane took to music at very early age like a duck takes to water. Lane's father was pastor of Beaumont's Full Gospel Pentecostal Church and his mother (Lane's grandmother) officiated at the local Church of God in Christ, just two blocks from their home... By his fifth birthday, Lane had learned to play quite well. It was strictly forbidden to play anything but gospel songs in the home. When Lane's father left the house, Lane would experiment with popular songs but just as soon as he heard his footsteps at the door, his noodling switched to gospel.
