Morningside Lane is an American Indie pop-rock band from Bergen County, NJ.
Founding members, Marc Del Giudice (lead vocals/guitar) and Jon Khan (lead guitar/vocals), grew up together as family friends in Fort Lee/Palisades Park, New Jersey. After about a year of writing and rehearsing together, the band began playing local cafes and venues. With their lineup now completed by drummer, Ori Yekutiel, and bassist, Jake Donofrio, Morningside Lane have toured the US, UK and Canada playing national shows and local shows while also hitting underground basement shows in New Jersey.
The band’s first two EPs, Just The Other Side of Romance and Poets & Back to the Radio, released in 2011 and 2012 respectively, were produced, mixed and engineered by Ted Young (Arcade Fire, The Gaslight Anthem, Brand New and Coldplay). Pete Steinkopf of The Bouncing Souls recorded the band’s other two EPs, including A Fifth of Elvis, which The Aquarian praised, “Compacted with killer and no filler at all...there is something enjoyable for everyone,” and Mellow Drama, which Music Gets Me By called an “excellent, rich record and a great statement to the band’s future direction.”
