Jonny Lang's music is original in several ways: a hoarse voice of "blues shouter" has made it compare to senior blues veterans or even recognize by them. A guitar game responding to the song and featuring very rhythmic solos (staccato) and notes enhanced by a deep vibrato. It must be associated with an impressive performance stage (contortions, grimaces, lively gestures). Finally, the texts of Jonny Lang have the distinction of being related to his own experiences of life, often spiritual. The result of these components is a deeply expressive and even expressionist and committed music, which makes Jonny Lang an artist highly respected by his fellow musicians and very much followed by a community of fans around the world, particularly fond of his concerts. Jonny Lang started playing the saxophone at the age of 11, then the guitar when he was 12, after his father (Jon Langseth) took him to see Bad Medicine Blues, one of the leading blues bands. on the Fargo stage. Conquered by this style of music, while listening to "grunge" groups such as "Stone Temple Pilots", Jonny soon took guitar lessons from Ted Larsen, the band's leading guitarist. A few months later, Jonny joined the group as singer and second guitarist. The band is renamed "Kid Jonny Lang and the Big Bang".
