Jonny Lang Returns To Experience Hendrix 2014 Fall Tour

2014Fall_FacebookPoster

“I wanted to honor his memory playing his songs for this tour,” explained Grammy Award winning singer/guitarist Jonny Lang about his relationship to the legacy of Jimi Hendrix. “The thing we can all do is just be ourselves and let the natural interpretation of his songs take over.”

In the wake of a wildly successful twenty-five date national excursion this past March and April, the Experience Hendrix Tour is set to launch another trek across the U.S. in September and October. The Experience Hendrix Tour has been paying homage to the musical genius of Jimi Hendrix for over a decade, bringing together a diverse, all-star aggregation of extraordinary guitarists including multiple Grammy-winning Kennedy Center honoree Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde.

All of the aforementioned are returning for the forthcoming edition of the Experience Hendrix Tour as are Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson, Eric Johnson, Doyle Bramhall II, Eric Gales, Mato Nanji, Ana Popovic, and Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble’s Chris Layton. As always, the legendary Billy Cox, bassist for both The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys, who has anchored each Experience Hendrix Tour since inception in 2000, is on board.

Jonny Lang Announces Summer European Tour – Twelve New Shows Announced With More To Come

Announces Summer European Tour

Twelve New Shows Announced With More To Come

New Album Fight For My Soul Out Now

Jonny Lang Press Release 3-2014

After not being active for almost a decade in Europe, Jonny Lang is announcing his third European tour in the past twelve months.    His tour this past October played to standing room only crowds. Lang is also returning for a brief run of shows in the spring including a headline show in London, England at Shepherds Bush Empire on April 25th.

Lang’s latest touring plans will take him to many territories he hasn’t visited in years along with making his first ever performance in Poland.  Several other major European festival performances will be announced shortly.  Tickets for all new shows will go on sale this week.  Check www.jonnylang.com for ticket links.

Lang is touring in support of his latest album Fight For My Soul (Mascot Label Group)  – the follow up to his Grammy Award Winning 2006 album “Turn Around.  Classic Rock Magazine stated that Fight For My Soul “finds Lang back on top form.”  Upon it’s release BBC Radio 2 named it their ‘Album Of The Week.’

You can watch Lang performing his latest single “Blew Up (The House)” on Jimmy Kimmel Live here: http://bit.ly/JLHouseKimmel

Lang has been working on the release for three years with Producer Tommy Sims, who co-wrote Eric Clapton’s Grammy winning “Change the World.”  The duo collaborated on the project from the ground up.

The album defies categorization by a single genre.  The textured arrangements, broad worldview, gorgeous vocal melodies, and expressive guitar playing are what defines Fight For My Soul.  It is unequivocally what Lang aimed to achieve over the long period he has been working on reaching a realized vision.  He offers, “Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs.  I really like reaching out and connecting with people.  For me, this is what it’s all about.  It keeps it fresh with different experiences every day.”

Since the release of his 1997 major label debut “Lie To Me”, the then 16 year-old Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation.

Holiday exclusive: Download Jonny Lang’s ‘Seasons’

The Grammy-winning guitarist is offering the song as a free download for USA TODAY readers.

SHARE 67CONNECT 17TWEET 1COMMENTEMAILMORE

Grammy-winning rock and blues guitarist Jonny Lang has a holiday treat for his fans — a free download of his song Seasons, available exclusively through USA TODAY.

Seasons is a different kind of holiday song, about a man who struggles with conflicting emotions during the holidays, watching the children “carrying on without a care” around a decorated house and tree while dwelling on his own shortcomings. The song appears on Fight for My Soul, Lang’s first studio album in seven years.

Lang says he initially wrote Seasons as a therapeutic exercise, never intending to put it on an album. But producer Tommy Sims eventually convinced him to include it on Fight for My Soul, and Lang has since called it the album track of which he’s most proud.

Lang’s first studio album in seven years, Fight For My Soul, was just released last week via Mascot Label Group.  The album was named BBC Radio 2’s Album Of The Week upon its release.

Over a period of three years, Lang collaborated with producer/songwriter Tommy Sims (who co-wrote Eric Clapton’s GRAMMY-winning “Change the World”) crafting the album’s elegant rock ‘n’ soul tracks from the ground up.

Textured arrangements, gorgeous vocal melodies, and expressive guitar playing are all found in generous abundance on Fight For My Soul, however, the album defies categorization by a single genre.

“This album is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” offers Lang. “Some of these songs may surprise people, but that’s what it’s all about.  It keeps it fresh, and it keeps me growing.  Creatively, I think there is a lot more going on inside of me than I’ve been sharing on record so far.  Much of what I’ve experienced through music and life in general is in these songs.”

Since the release of his 1997 major label debut “Lie To Me”, the then 16 year-old Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation.
