Canadian, Lance King, releases Driftin’ with Musik Radio Promotions following the successful release of Love You All the Way. Recorded at Omni Studios in Nashville, TN and produced by Stephen Wrench, Driftin’ is destined to become the next worldwide radio hit.
Driftin’ was written by Lance’s Father, Ed King. Ed continues to enjoy a long and productive career in the music industry being a member of the BCCMA (British Columbia Country Music Association) hall of fame and has won several awards as entertainer or male vocalist of the year in both “The Canadian Country Gospel Music Association” and the “The Country Music Association.” Lance respects the talent of his father saying, “I liked the song and wanted to honor my Father by recording a song that he has written.”
Lance grew up in a musical family, his maternal grandparents having played piano and fiddle at the local Saturday night dance hall, his fraternal grandmother sung and played guitar, and his father, Ed King, being a still musically active member of the BCCMA hall of fame. From an early age, Lance aspired to be a singer/songwriter and has written several songs including “Rockem’ Sockem’ Christmas” which was recorded by his father and released on a compilation disc in the fall of 1994. While receiving some airplay in Canada and the US, “Rockem’ Sockem’ Christmas” was well received in France and charted at #27 a few weeks before Christmas.
In 2012 Lance released his CD D.I.M.E.S. which is an acronym for Determination, Inspiration, Motivation, Education, and Solutions. Lance wrote most of the songs on D.I.M.E.S. including “Livin’ My Own Way” which became the theme song for Danny Halo’s successful quest to set a Guinness World Record for the longest journey on a motorized bicycle. Lance also wrote “You Can Make Difference If You Try” and co-wrote “Brand New Sunny Day” which were both featured in the Vancouver produced documentary “Try On A Disability”.
Inspired by his mentally challenged daughter, Lance formed “King’s Developmental Farm Association” which is a BC registered society aimed on improving life by providing educational and vocational opportunities for young adults living with a developmental disability. Lance’s approach to music and song writing is to send a positive message of triumph over adversity, remind the listener that high self-esteem is a birthright, and that to love, be loved and be accepted for who you are is really all that matters.
Lance has no intention of slowing down anytime soon. He recorded 5 other songs while in Nashville and those will be released later this year.
Lance is appreciative of his success up to this point and responds,” I want to thank all the stations for playing my previous release “Love You All The Way” . It was a real thrill watching for and seeing my efforts on the charts”. “Love You All The Way” peaked @ #12 on the Euro Indie Music Chart and #23 on the Digital Radio Tracker National (USA) Top 50 #Country chart and is still on the charts recieving thousands of plays each week.
There will be much more coming of which to be thankful!
