Steel strings wrapped in a velvet voice.
For the first time at Foundry616, singer and guitarist Jenny Marie Lang and her band bring their magical fusion of crossover blues and jazz tinged rock.
What audiences can expect to experience is the perfect music cocktail – a shot of soul, a splash of jazz, a healthy measure of blues, a twist of alternate country, topped up with a dose of rock energy and served with a ton of passion. Jenny’s soulful voice soars from rich velvet to powerful gritty heights evoking the honest rawness of India Arie, the warm intricacy of Diana Krall, the soulful outpouring of Aretha Franklin or Eva Cassidy. Her guitar fluency and multi-instrumental talents should also see her listed up there with the greats she draws her influences from – Bonnie Raitt, Richard Thompson, Ry Cooder.
Jenny has a natural feel for shaping the strings on anything from soaring Bayou drenched lap steel to a big noted country soul semi-acoustic guitar. Whether fingerpicking a banjo, strumming a mandolin, or shredding a stomping blues rock ‘strat’, the chords flow from fingers that were born to play. She won a talent competition just three weeks after picking up her first guitar aged eleven, and has all the singer songwriter traits – raw talent, style and heart – to have already put the world at her feet.
Jenny is about to follow up her excellent but raw album ‘Not This Time‘ with another more professionally produced record. She has toured widely, supporting Kenny Rogers, Diesel, Wendy Mathews, Richard Clapton, Bill Chambers, Kevin Welch and Eric Bibb. She caught the ear of Cold Chisel’s Steve Prestwich and ended up as a regular in his band.
Performing at Byron Bay Bluesfest and sharing stages with Eugene Hideaway Bridges, Jim Conway and Steve Seskin – who has co-written a song for her forthcoming album. Featuring new songs and her own band, tonight we get to witness it in making as she refines her material doing what she loves best – performing.
