"Ed Sheeran is without a doubt the darling of the AC format"

Ed Sheeran is without a doubt the darling of the AC format. His very latest in “Shape Of You” (Atlantic) continues to showcase his development as an artist. Ed always seems to keep you guessing as to which direction he can go and just when you think you know what his next move will be, think again...
...Erica Lane is a new artist that many of you are raving about. Her debut single in “Wake” is all that and a bag of chips. Morgan Alexander is also getting plenty of love and attention at AC40. “Breaking My Heart” (Coast) is the jam that is helping her get there. - New Music Weekly

"Debbie's "On The Verge!" with Erica Lane (Podcast)"

"Teacher by day, pop star by night"

Perusing Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Indicator Chart, there’s Adele, Pink, Coldplay — and Erica Lane Garza, choir director at Wilson & Young Medal of Honor Middle School.

Garza, who uses Erica Lane as her professional singing moniker, has been singing professionally, recording albums and singles, touring and writing songs for 10 years. The song on the chart, “Wake,” is one she penned and it’s now at No. 25 out of 40.

“I went through a tough time in 2014. I just had some life experiences that brought me back to Texas to be closer to family and that song was birthed out of those experiences about getting past the hard stuff in life and finding what home is for you,” Garza said. “I named it ‘Wake,’ so it’s an uplifting, positive song.”

The tune was produced by Gary Lefkowith and Mike Rogers. It is a single at this point, but Garza said she would like it to become part of a future album. - Odessa American
