You ain’t know Blues until you dig Jonny’s Blues! Jonny plays that guitar like he been playing it since he was in his Mammy’s belly! That boy surely knows his Blues! This album will Rock your Soul until you feel that Electric Blues in your Bones!
Jonny Played Guitar!
Jonny Lang started his career in 1995 releasing his first album which was the harbinger of his upcoming Blues Stardom! Jonny Lang the same as Kenny Wayne Shepherd started when they were kids and they started big with a blast! As soon as Jonny Lang hit the Blues scene, people started taking him seriously!
Today, Jonny Lang is one of the greatest Blues guitar players of all times. Jonny Lang’s awesome voice also is the perfect complement to his guitar playing. Jonny Lang is one of the greatest singer, songwriter, musician and guitarists in the Blues music.

Jonny Lang basically writes his own lyrics and music. He also arranges and produces his own material. Jonny has been doing this since he was a little kid. The boy, now a man is pretty much a Blues Genius, a Guitar Hero and eventually belonging in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!
In this album Jonny performs fabulous versions of:
Bump in the Road (Funky Blues)
Turn Around (Slow Funky Blues)
One Person at a Time (Fast Beat Blues)
A Quitter Never Wins (Slow Jam Blues)
I Am (Fast Funky Blues)
Breaking Me (Guitar Blues)
Lie To Me (Hardcore Heavy Electric Blues)
My favorites are “Lie to Me” which is a heavy duty Electric Blues tune, and “Bump in the Road” which is some Funked Up Heavy Blues!
Jonny Lang Style
Jonny more or less created his own style of Blues singing and guitar playing.
Jonny’s voice: Panicky, paranoid, melancholic, Vocal Funky Blues which from time to time gets powerfully continuous and guttery Deep Blues Voice.
Jonny’s guitar style: Hardcore, Heavy Electric Blues with Blue Note (half note) melodies and licks accompanied with loud riffs and chords plus some random blasts of guitar solos! Nothing quite like it. It is Jonny’s Funked Up Blues Guitar Style!
Masters such as BB King, when alive, clearly stated that Jonny Lang is surely the future of the Electric Guitar Blues and Jonny is one of the most promising Contemporary Blues Artists. BB King played harmony and duo with Jonny Lang on many occasions. When BB King says you’re great, then there’s nothing left to debate about!
I Am The Blues Man
Blues is my favorite style of music. I wear the shades and I play the Blues Piano. I am a Blues Historian and a Blues Collector. Allow me to quote myself:
“Blues is a state of mind,
You must feel it deep in your bone marrow!”
Jonny Lang surely feels them oodles and oodles of Blues in his bone marrow!
Get this album, dig it and collect it. It will Rock your Soul and Blast your Mind! This is some seriously heavy Blues Vocals and blasting Blues Guitars. Get a Load O This If You Can!
