Jonny Lang to release the album 'Signs'

INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed singer and guitarist, Jonny Lang is to release, his first album in four years. The project 'Signs' will be issued on 8th September through Concord Records. A press release read, "'Signs' is not merely a return the artist's guitar-based beginnings, but an embodiment of an even more elemental sound. Beyond focusing attention on his soloing prowess, it is about recapturing the spirit of the early blues, where the guitar was front and center, fairly leaping out of the speakers." Lang went on to say, "A lot of my earlier influences have been coming to the surface, like Robert Johnson and Howlin' Wolf. I have been appreciating how raw and unrefined that stuff is. I had an itch to emulate some of that and I think it shows in the songs. Still, I let the writing be what it was and that was sometimes not necessarily the blues." Lang has also began a tour, which will include USA, Canada, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and an appearance at London Folk And Roots Fest on 4th November. CR
