Jonny Lang - February 23

At 37 years old Jonny Lang has already had a successful career for two decades. He released his first platinum record at 15. Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating around in the late ‘90s. What began as a bluesy sound, influenced by electric pioneers like Albert Collins, B. B. King, and Buddy Guy, Lang’s style has evolved into a modern R&B style closer to Stevie Wonder and contemporary gospel music. His distinctive, blues-inflected licks appear on every album. Though he long ago left blues purism behind, Lang has never abandoned its spirit of universal catharsis through the relating of personal trials. Signs reaffirms his commitment to the blues and the guitar without sacrificing the modern approach that has made him such a singular artist.
