Soda Cracker Jesus is the rock n roll brainchild of singer-songwriter-producer Regan Lane. His debut single My Anthem has charted on many independent radio stations worldwide, rising to number 15 on the prestigious Radio Indie Alliance Charts.
SCJ’S references are easy to draw, from a beefed-up Beatles or punked-out Kinks to those who took that sound forward including Robyn Hitchcock, Julian Cope, XTC, Anton Barbeau, and many more. What you will find once the needle hits the wax is effortless grooves and lush harmonies along with a relentless drive of clattering and cool backbeats and attitude. Energy meets euphoria in a two and half minute sonic workout.
SCJ's first 3 singles My Anthem, Drug My Soul and Kill It Tomorrow have all been played on over 100 indie radio stations and charted on the prestigious Indie Alliance Charts including numerous #1's. SCJ was also featured on blogs and websites around the world including The New Music Food Truck, Eclectic Music Lover, JPGChief, Ballroom Blitz's Man At The Back . Kill It Tomorrow was the #1 song of the day on Australia's Valley FM 89.5 and also #1 on the Los Angeles-based Radio Candy Indie Show! The My Anthem video was added to The International Singer-Songwriters Association's Television Network Channel on ROKU, and Regan is so very excited about this new expansion. This will give SCJ and other ISSA members a direct presence with TV viewers across the world.
