Megan Lane began performing music professionally at age 12 at Bud's on Broadway, Saskatoon and, soon after, in blues bars around Western Canada. Before learning guitar, she played the drums. Megan cites Elvis Presley and Stevie Wonder as early influences and is quoted in interviews saying that her mother would play these artists to her while she was in utero by strapping a pair of headphones to her belly.
