Caught Jonny playing at the Dixon Mayfair a few years ago. I was asked to leave rather rudely by the venues security for photographing this event. Hundreds of I-phones and Droids but pull out a DSLR and the whole world comes to a halt.
Jonny started playing guitar at the age of twelve taking lessons from Tod Larsen of the Bad Medicine Blues Band. Jonny later joined that band and the band was eventually renamed Kid Jonny Lang and the Big Bang.
Jonny first albim came at the age of 14 and he has since toured with many of rock and blues greats including Aerosmith, B.B. King, and Jeff Beck.
At this time Jonny has a number of albums out and he has been nominated for a grammy on Wander this World. Other albums include Lie To Me, Long Time Coming, Live at the Ryman, and Turn Around.
One of my favorite songs that he played this might was Red Light. Red Light is a slow blues tune that starts out very soulful and somewhat quit. As the song moves onJonny picks up the tempo and the guitar starts soaring. Somewhere along this long jam the guitar is smoking and you try to think back, how did we get here from where we were a couple of minutes ago. This was some of Jonny's most soulful jammin.
Jonny is still young and full of tallent. From what I understand he is grounded in his faith in God. I can only omagine a very long and succesful carrer for this young musician. I look forward to seeing him again.
