During the adolescent ages, when video games & cartoons are king, dreams of playing in a rock band seem far from reality...Not so for Corey Lane, who picked up his first set of drumsticks at age two. Ever since entering the 9th grade, Corey has been hard at work forming bands, writing songs and touring relentlessly in search of the dream. In 2000, along with other Orlando natives, Corey helped form a band called Big Mother Thruster. The band took form & would gain momentum pounding the Florida circuit in multiple SUV’s & a trailer. In 2001, the band caught the attention of a Maverick Records rep. leading to a recording contract under Maverick/Warner Bros. Records.
Along with a few member changes, Maverick Records by their side and a new record in the making, the band also took on a new name...”Mercy Drive”. While on the road supporting such acts as Disturbed, Drowning Pool, Adema, American Hi-Fi, Seven Mary Three, Staind & Jane’s Addiction, Mercy Drive’s music caught the attention of the World Wrestling Federation, DreamWorks Records & MTV resulting in four tunes being aired on MTV’s Tough Enough television show & one song being featured on the DreamWorks Records release of the Tough Enough soundtrack, which has sold over 150,000 copies nationwide. Pro-wrestler & Mercy Drive fan Maven, currently uses one of the bands songs as his introduction to the mat.
In 2004, Mercy Drive again teamed up with the WWE to write the theme music entitled “Burn In My Light” for the new Heavyweight Champion, Randy Orton and is set to be included on the upcoming WWE soundtrack entitled "Wreckless Intent" due out 5/23/06 on Sony Records.
Also in 2004, Corey was hired as the drummer for the Tallahassee based, Wind-Up recording artist “Big Dismal”. Fresh off of three #1 singles in the Christian Rock market from their debut record “Believe” and with Corey now on drums, Big Dismal was invited to write two new songs for the movie soundtrack “The Passion Of The Christ - Songs Inspired By”. The band’s first single off of the soundtrack “Rainy Day” quickly climbed the charts to the #2 spot and stayed there for almost a year. “Rainy Day” is still in rotation on numerous Christian Rock, Christian Pop and Mainstream Rock stations across America.
Corey currently resides in Los Angeles, CA where he’s taking his musical career to the next level. Whether it’s session work or live shows, Corey’s musical journey is still so young and it’s not hard to see that the best is yet to come.
