Acclaimed blues singer and axeman Jonny Lang is a true guitar player's guitarist, a legend among fingerpickers around the world for his ferocious playing and virtuosic technique. From his days as a teenage prodigy performing for Bill Clinton to his stints on tour with legends like B.B. King and Aerosmith, Lang has proven himself to be an electrifying performer, as adept on originals like "Lie to Me" as he is covering class acts like Stevie Wonder and Edgar Winters. Taking the stage with his signature bluesy croon and trusty Fender Telecaster guitar, Lang is set to stun on his upcoming US tour dates.
Born in Fargo, North Dakota, Lang took up the guitar at age 12. By his early teens, he was skilled enough to join his guitar teacher's band, which was renamed Kid Jonny Lang & The Big Bang in his honor. After signing to A&M records at age 16 he released his 1997 solo debut Lie to Me, a critical and commercial success that landed on the Billboard 200 and went multi-platinum. 1998 follow-up Wander this World was a similar success, cracking the US Top 40 and earning him a Grammy nomination. In 2013, he topped the Blues Albums chart with his sixth studio album Fight for My Soul, also reaching No. 2 on the Christian Albums chart. A fiery performer with skill to spare, Lang will continue to deliver big on his upcoming tour dates.
