In 1995, at the age of 14, Lang released his first album, ‘Smokin’. Performing both as himself and as as ‘Kid Jonny Lang & The Big Bang’, he achieved some budding success. As a result of the LP becoming a regional hit, a major-label bidding war ensued that culminated in Lang signing to A&M Records in 1996.

In 1997, at the age of 15, he released his major-label debut, ‘Lie To Me’.

That track continues to be beloved by Lang’s fan-base.

Lang followed with ‘Wander This World’, released on October 20, 1998. Broadening his sound somewhat with influences from classic and modern , the release experienced widespread success. His singles, “Wander This World” and “Still Rainin’”, did particularly well, the latter tune reaching the #8 slot on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart.

Several releases and constant touring later, Lang’s latest work is ‘Fight For My Soul’, released on September 2, 2013. The album has received critical acclaim from publications such has Allmusic, with the reviewers remarking that Lang “dives headfirst into classic soul and R&B, its elastic, funky grooves allowing the guitarist plenty of space to solo”. It also hit the #20 slot on Billboard’s ‘Top Rock Albums’ chart, selling extremely well.

    Become a true rock musician it's the dream of every boy and every girl imagines that all these cool songs will be dedicated to her. In order to succeed, you need to be persistent and, of course, talented, hard working and lucky. The path to glory is thorny and difficult, but if you are determined to achieve their goal, then success will sooner or later come to you. So that happened to Jonny.

    It seems that sometimes, walking the streets of the city and reflecting on its own, you see the world around just the way it represents Jonny Lang
