Description

Jeff Lang is critically acclaimed as a truly great slide guitar player and has built up a reputation for startling and original performances. The unusual thing is that the guitar playing never gets in the way of the music, nor overshadows his gift for hauntingly poetic songwriting. He has toured with Ani Di Franco, Chris Whitley, Albert Collins, Bob Dylan, Loudon Wainwright III, Richard Thompson, Greg Brown, Kelly Joe Phelps, Dr. John and Bob Geldolf, he has also collaborated with slide guitar virtuoso Bob Brozman. Part blues, folk-storytelling and roots rock 'Whatever Makes You happy' is a compelling combination of haunting lyrics, stunning guitar virtuosity and riveting vocals. The result is a contemporary roots hybrid musical style described as "often hard and raw, sometimes sweet and melodic, and always innovative." Dirty Linen. Guitarist and roots rocker John Butler has described Lang's live show as "...a totally sacred event. He's the man as far as I'm concerned."
