Grammy Award winning artist, Jonny Lang, is back with his new album, ‘Signs’. If you aren’t familiar with Jonny, you are definitely missing out. He is a Blues, Gospel and rock guitarist, songwriter and singer. There is nothing this man can’t do. He brings in so many influences and crafts them into heartfelt and moving songs that are either blues or straight up rock & roll and when he mixes the two together, watch out!!
I remember when his first album came out in 1997, ‘Lie to Me’, and he was only 16 years old. I heard that album and couldn’t believe what I was hearing. No 16 year old should be able to pull off what this kid could do. Years went by and he struggled with substance abuse and in 2000 came clean. He found Christianity after shunning it for so long and it changed his perspective on everything. His writing, playing and vocals started hitting on all cylinders. He won a Grammy in 2006 for his album ‘Turn Around’ and he kept putting out incredible music.
Now in 2017, can he still produce albums that strike a chord with you after 20 years in the business? Oh yes he can. Jonny Lang has released what could possibly be the album of the year for me. His vocals, songwriting and guitar playing (damn can he play a guitar) are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Sit back and let me walk you through this masterpiece.
