BiographyHis interest in music started at the age of 12 when he began to play the guitar in her hometown of Fargo, North Dakota. He could play everything from modern hits to classics and an amazing rendition of Jimy Hendrix’s version of the USA National Anthem. Right after his father took him to a performance of the Bad Medicine Blues Band, he started to take guitar lessons from the band’s guitarist Ted Larsen. Months later, Lang became part of the band, renamed Kid Jonny Lang & the Big Band. Two years later, he was signed by A&M Records, making him one of the latest guitar prodigies in a craze about blues guitarist.
When he was 15, he recorded a blues album titled “Lie to Me” (1997) which got the number 1 spot on the New Artist chart of Billboard magazine. Another album came at the age of 17, “Wander This World”, earning him a Grammy nomination. Released in 2003, his following record album “Long Time Coming” was aimed mostly into the Soul genre and the next production “Turn Around” was more gospel oriented and gave him his first Grammy Award.
His career has made him share stage with artists and groups of recognized fame like the Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, B.B. King, Blues Traveller, Jeff Beck, and Sting. He has also performed to Bill Clinton, President of the USA in 1999, and Jesse Ventura at the Inaugural ceremony as Minnesota Governor.
His latest album was released after 4 years away from recording studios. Under the title of “Signs”, it had two dates of release in 2017: September 1st in Europe and September 8th in North America.
