Jonny Lang Still Smokin' On "Live At The Ryman"
Here's a brand new April 2010 interview with guitarist/bluesman/songwriter (not sure what to call him these days) Jonny Lang. Jonny has been through a fantastic evolution during the course of his career - from straight-up blues artist, to slick and passionate soul man. This evolution is seen on Jonny's latest, "Live At The Ryman." The new live disc, which was recorded with Jonny's white hot backing band, captured at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium - is the bulk of the conversation. Jonny talks about the gig itself, the chemistry with his band, and his philosophy for recording his live gigs. We also talk about one of the most interesting parts of his career - the period surrounding his "Lie To Me" record, where Jonny broke out big in the U.S., and toured with some of the biggest names in the business, including the Rolling Stones (you may also remember a guest spot on The Drew Carey Show). Jonny also reveals that he is writing material for a new studio record, but not making any concret plans as of yet. Check out Jonny's website at www.jonnylang.com for more on the live record. Thanks to Jonny for being a cool interview, and Amanda at ABC PR for the setup.
