Often taking unexpected turns\, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalog of over 25 albums. \nAs legions of journalists have written\, Jeff is not one to be easily pegged\, though in a general sense it’s fair to say he largely trades in roots-oriented rock; wider reaching in collaborations with the likes of roving guitar anthropologist Bob Brozman\, American blues-rocker Chris Whitley\, India’s desert-dwellers Maru Tarang and world music virtuosos Bobby Singh and Mamadou Diabate. Jeff’s work with the latter won the 2010 ARIA (Australia’s Grammy) for Best World Music Album\, while he and Brozman took one home for Best Blues and Roots Music Album in 2002. Jeff received that same award on his own in 2012. \nJeff has mischievously called his music ‘Disturbed Folk.’ One writer referred to him as a “quiet achiever.” But the overall impression one has from observing Jeff’s lengthy career is that of a driven man who keeps his head down\, playing and recording music as if his very life depends on it. \nOutside of his homeland\, Jeff has toured the UK\, Europe\, Japan\, India\, China\, South Africa\, New Zealand and Canada as well as concentrated work in the U.S.\, where he has played upwards of 300 shows\, living there for 6 months at a time. He has appeared on prestigious American radio programs A Prairie Home Companion\, Mountain Stage and Acoustic Café.\nJeff has shared stages with Bob Dylan\, Dr. John\, Richard Thompson\, Bonnie Raitt\, Ani Di Franco\, Chris Whitley\, Albert Collins\, Loudon Wainwright III\, Greg Brown\, John Butler\, AR Rahman and Bob Geldolf\, among many others. \nJeff has delivered show-stopping performances at festivals all across the globe: The Dublin Blues Festival\, Philadelphia Folk Festival\, Quebec City Music Festival\, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival\, Winterhawk Bluegrass Festival\, Fuji Rock\, Glastonbury\, Echo Park China\, Ottawa BluesFest as well as on his home turf at Port Fairy\, Woodford\, Bluesfest Byron Bay and Womadelaide. \nJeff Lang’s unique musical vision easily finds a home in myriad settings\, from large festival stages to the intimate\, long-running Ann Arbor\, Michigan club The Ark to the Sydney Opera House. Most importantly\, Jeff Lang has achieved what is a rarity in the cluttered world of contemporary sounds: his own voice. \n “Jeff Lang is\, in my humble opinion\, a national treasure\, a truly gifted songwriter and an outstanding guitarist. He has been inspiration to countless Australian and internationally renowned roots artists and surely has a place in history as one of this generation’s finest. He has really touched me and musically\, I had a kind of revelation…” –John Butler\, John Butler Trio \nJeff will be coming to Hugh’s Room Live this February to showcase the strength of his new record and from across his career.
