RIP Holly Lane

Holly Lane, a longtime East Village resident who worked in music, died suddenly on June 26. She was 59. A cause of death was not revealed.

A friend shared this information:

A consummate music professional, Holly was the common bond between many groups of people and could always be found networking and connecting friends and colleagues.

Holly was happiest when she was attending a rumba in the city or hearing an indie band perform. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the music genres she adored. She relished talking about drums, sound systems and the record label business — and was always ready to share her passions.

A fierce advocate for artists’ rights, she strived to protect their assets and monetize their talents.

She leaves behind her sister, Jeanine Owen, a brother, nieces, grand nieces and also her beloved cats Porter and Esme, and many devoted friends. Holly was predeceased by her parents and sister Lorraine. Memorial services will be announced at a future date.
