Modern Love Child

One Album
  • Modern Love Child is the music outlet for LA based singer/songwriter Jonny Shane. 

    Since 2012, Shane has been engrossed in his own flavor of Venice, CA living: "Surf when you want to, work a sty job when you have to, make music all night." His first band, Blue Blazer, became a local favorite up and down the Sunset Strip before disbanding in 2015. As Shane began exploring a more direct, autobiographical way of writing, Modern Love Child was born. The following year, he headed to London and inked his first record deal with Believe. 

    Fate intertwined in 2017 when he ran into one of his musical idols, Ben Kweller, back in Venice. After chatting for a few minutes, they parted ways. Six months later, Shane was back on the east coast, visiting his hometown of Darien, CT, when he realized that he and Kweller were in line at the same coffee shop. After this serendipitous bi-coastal encounter, the two felt a need to explore this cosmic connection. "I kept running into Jonny in the most random places," Kweller says. "It was like the universe was speaking to us. As soon as Jonny sent me those original work tapes, it was clear what the universe was trying to say." Within the month, Shane was on a plane to Texas to join Kweller at his ranch outside of Austin. The two artists worked non-stop for days on demos that would become Modern Love Child's debut album, MLC. Once the album was written and ready to be made, Shane enlisted acclaimed producer/mixer, Charlie Russell (Alt-J, Passenger, OK Go) to record the final product.

    Lyrics:

    Wake up, Maggie, I think I got something to say to you It's late September and I really should be back at school I know I keep you amused, but I feel I'm being used Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more You led me away from home, just to save you from being alone You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts The morning sun, when it's in your face really shows your age But that don't worry me none in my eyes, you're everything I laughed at all of your jokes, my love you didn't need to coax Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more You led me away from home, just to save you from being alone You stole my soul, and that's a pain I can do without All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand But you turned into a lover, and, mother, what a lover you wore me out All you did was wreck my bed, and in the morning, kick me in the head Oh, Maggie, I couldn't have tried any more You led me away from home 'cause you didn't wanna be alone You stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if I tried I suppose I could collect my books and get on back to school Or steal my daddy's cue and make a living out of playing pool Or find myself a rock 'n' roll band that needs a helping hand Oh, Maggie, I wished I'd never seen your face You made a first-class fool out of me But I'm as blind as a fool can be You stole my heart, but I love you anyway Maggie, I wished I'd never seen your face I'll get on back home one of these days Ooh, ooh, ooh
