Jonny Lang’s newest studio album, Signs, was released in North America in September of 2017 via SayRai/Concord Records. The album (his sixth major label release) is his first in four years.
Anyone who originally discovered Jonny Lang through his searing instrumental work will revel in the huge guitar tones and go for broke solos on Signs, while those who have appreciated his growth as an honest and passionate songwriter will find that honesty and passion unabated. 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.
It is hard to believe that at only 36 years old Jonny Lang has already had a successful career for two decades. Easier to believe when you learn he released his first platinum record at 15—an age when many young people are just beginning to play music. Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating around in the late Nineties. No flashy re-hasher of classic blues licks, even at that early age Lang was a full-blown artist with a style of his own. Also, setting Lang apart from the wunderkind crowd was a 15-year-old voice that sounded like a weathered soul shouter. Actual life experience was yet to come, and has been subsequently chronicled in a series of five uniformly excellent recordings.
Since the release of his debut album, the Grammy Award winning Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation. The path Lang has been on has brought him the opportunity to support or perform with some of the most respected legends in music–he has shared the stage with everyone from The Rolling Stones and B.B. King to Aerosmith and Buddy Guy.
Zane Carney – dubbed “The Future Of Electric Guitar” by The Huffington Post – is a singer-songwriter and GRAMMY® nominated guitarist, most known for his work with John Mayer, Avril LaVigne, Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark and the LA Based Rock Band, CARNEY. Zane has worked with countless icons including Bono and Edge of U2, David Foster, Justin Timberlake and Don Was and has shared the stage with Keith Urban, Steven Tyler, Jackson Browne, Nicole Scherzinger, Stevie Wonder and many, many more.
In 2013 John Mayer handpicked Zane – sans audition – to play guitar in his touring band and on his album Paradise Valley. Later that year Zane released his debut EP and quickly gained a world-wide audience for his music. Because of this, Zane has headlined shows in Japan, Australia, Korea, Mexico, Europe, and of course many cities across the USA including his hometowns of NYC and LA.
While Bono has referred to Zane as “the best guitarist in NY,” it’s clear that Zane’s passion for singing and songwriting is gaining equal buzz amongst industry greats and fans alike. This notoriety has opened many new doors, including co-writing on Avril LaVigne’s upcoming 2018 release and opening for Jonny Lang across the globe.
