Jeff Lang Returns for Another China Tour in 2010

Jeff Lang Returns for Another China Tour in 2010

“Seeing Jeff Lang was like being at church for three hours – a totally sacred event.  He’s the man as far as I’m concerned.” John Butler

Australian roots rock and blues legend Jeff Lang has built up a reputation for startlingly original performances, working without a set list, allowing the unique energy of each night to shape the songs. Having previously toured with the likes of Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan, Lang is coming back to shake up The Peoples Republic for a second time. Lang’s 2009 China tour won him a boatload of local fans blown away by his guitar-picking skills and soulful live performance. Now armed with a recently released album, Chimeradour, we should expect nothing less than something epic.

Rolling Stone praises Lang’s new albums as “[a] dizzying combination of deep folk, kaleidoscopic blues and Hendrixesque fuzzy rock, enough to blow most minds, leaving celebrated contemporaries for the dead.”

Chimeradour is a spectral and many-faceted sonic journey. A voracious musical explorer, Lang has absorbed and transformed many rich influences in the course of his collaborations with musicians from Mali to Mumbai.

The result — echoes of African desert blues reverberate in the rolling, hypnotic lap slide guitar work on South, whilst driving guitar rock of Slow Rooms and Half Blurred Faces suggests the ragged the ragged glory of Neil Young and Crazy Horse.  The Australian remarks, “listening to a new Jeff Lang album is like a cinematic experience. Images from Lang’s latest album sear the brain and scour the soul.”
