Description
It is hard to believe that at 38 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 90s. No flashy re-hasher of classic blues licks, as 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.
