“Jeff Lang is one of those people who has music dripping from his fingers.”
Courier Mail, Australia
"He explores sonorities as eclectic as they are stunning...Lang's only reference point is himself, a unique singer-songwriter-guitarist who follows his own path."
Le Soleil, Quebec
“Jeff Lang is, in my humble opinion, a national treasure, a truly gifted songwriter and an outstanding guitarist. He has been inspiration to countless Australian and internationally renowned roots artists and surely has a place in history as one of this generation’s finest. He has really touched me and musically, I had a kind of revelation…”
John Butler, John Butler Trio
“We’re treated to moody atmospheric textures, ripping electric lap-steel riffs, delicate acoustic picking, trippy backwards leads, oddball percussion, throbbing tremolo, and unconventional lyrics – all of which Lang blends like some crazed sonic alchemist.“
