“Witty, melodic folk-pop tunes with meat on their bones.”
– The New York Times

“Lance’s song ‘American’ is a hard-bitten declamation of one American's beliefs and admissions performed with white-hot-bitter fervor"

– The Huffington Post


“Critics Pick. The rising composer has traveled the world as one of the best hip-nightclub music directors in the biz is now showcase his burgeoning catalog with vocal help from an international array of stars. Get your tickets and then go listen to them blow their Horne in celebration.”

– Time Out New York



“This disc is a decidedly impressive listen. Among the most notable tunes are the hilarious "Haircut," which Ricki Lake delivers with panache; the bitingly satiric "American," which Alan Cumming mines for every bit of its explosive and sad anger; and "Strange Bird," a ballad that echoes Elton John, sung with gentle, affecting earnestness by Cheyenne Jackson.”




“Lance Horne’s sensational new album ‘First Things Last’ features the strikingly sensitive and alluring track from Broadway and ‘Glee’ star Cheyenne Jackson titled ‘Strange Bird.’”
