Jeff Lang on Tuesday 24th July 2018
“We’re treated to moody atmospheric textures, ripping electric lap-steel riffs, delicate acoustic picking, trippy backwards leads, oddball percussion, throbbing tremolo, and unconventional lyrics – all of which Lang blends like some crazed sonic alchemist.” --- Andy Ellis, Guitar Player Magazine, US
Our story begins with one man, a van and a long road ahead of him. The dusty roads of Australia... hundreds of gigs in tiny backwater places in tiny backwater towns lead to thousands of gigs across the globe.. gracing the stages of some of the most revered and respected venues and festivals worldwide. Things blend as they do, natural guitar talents with well over 10,000 hours playing results in an emotional virtuosity on the instrument acknowledged and respected worldwide. A musical curiosity based in the roots of music; blues, world, jazz... naturally lead to collaborations with some of the finest.
musicians in the world; Grammy award winning master kora player Mamadou Diabate, Chris Whitley (R.I.P.), Bob Brozman (R.I.P.), Tete, Bobby Singh - tabla virtuoso, Maru Tarang from Rajasthan. Fifteen studio albums, three aria award wins, production skills developed to be an in-demand producer and the work ethic of someone in love with his art have seen Jeff carve his own mould from this world of music, something which is uniquely his own, a sound which is true and original, restlessly inventive and always surprising in the outcome.
