Jonny Lang sings and plays his guitar from every ounce of his soul. The American blues, gospel artist started his career at the tender age of 13, and at that time was compared to that of a 40-year-old blues veterans.
Known for his uncanny vocal ability and his stunning guitar solos, the former prodigy has five albums that charted on the top 50 of the Billboard 200 chart and has won a Grammy Award for Turn Around.
18 years later Lang is still blowing minds doin’ his thing in his unique and brilliant way. Recently Mr. Lang came back to the Northwest and played the Snoqualmie Casino in support of his newest record, Fight For My Soul, released late last year. The record showcases a tighter and more contemporary sound.
16 year old Nolan Garrett, a prodigy in his own right, served as an ideal opening act. The Northwest native received a well deserved standing after delivering his own brand of blues guitar virtuosity.
