Description

Half Seas Over by acclaimed Australian guitarist, singer and songwriter Jeff Lang is an album resonant with story and song. With his eloquent guitar, sweet voice and plainspoken yet sensitive approach to the original and traditional source material, Jeff Lang is expanding the boundaries of traditional folk, country and blues to create a new brand of nontraditional music which is undeniably and deeply steeped in tradition, yet with its imagination set on future horizons. Arranged with the utmost simplicity, the duo format of Langs superb guitar accompanied by Grant Cummerfords deft bass playing allows the stories of Half Seas Over to be delivered in their utmost power. As the quiet intensity of their playing builds, driven by the relentless pace of each story, the duo paint indelible pictures a copper miner closing his eyes to dream of flight, a murderer watching the wind ruffle the water that will be his lovers grave. Inspired by a diverse set of influences, from John Fahey and Richard Thompson to Chris Whitley and Devendra Banhart, from Dock Boggs and Skip James to Dylan and AC/DC, Jeff Lang has created a contemporary classic.
