Jeff Lang Launches New Album, Hits The Road This March To June

Off the back of the release of his latest album, singer-songwriter Jeff Lang will be embarking on a national album launch tour from March to June. He will be performing in Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat Central, Adelaide, Whyalla, Launceston, Hobart, Sandgate, Sunshine Coast, Cowra, Orange, Katoomba, Newcastle, Hardys Bay, Wauchope, Bellingen, Balaclava, Wollongong, Ravenswood, Perth, Canberra, Murrah, Sydney and Melbourne. Apart from these shows, he will also be playing at this year's Brunswick Music Festival and Byron Bay Bluesfest.

In his 25-year old career and at least as many recordings, Alone In Bad Company is considered to be Jeff Lang’s most organic union of his talents and influences yet. Out now through ABC Music, Alone In Bad Company is packed with exquisitely sung stories and melodies demonstrating Lang's passion for music.

The first single lifted from the album, ‘Burnside’, immediately puts the spotlight on Lang’s proficiency as one of Australia’s best guitarists with rapid fingerpicking and guitar work. Each song on the album is rendered such that an alternative approach is unimaginable and each time Lang steps up to solo, his hard-won style is unmistakable – fluid but with an edge-of-the-seat recklessness.

Jeff Lang encapsulates acoustic fingerpicking, slide guitar, electric lead, banjos, mandolins and blue-eyed soul singing in an album that he himself almost entirely conceived and executed. Steadfast cohorts Danny McKenna and Allison Ferrier deliver on cue and master writer Don Walker shares his peerless wit on two songs, including the pointedly titled ‘With You I Can Throw Away The Pills’, a bitter-sweet finale.
