Pitch Artist Agency
Melbourne based guitarist-songwriter-vocalist-producer, Jeff Lang has built a reputation for
making startling music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul.
Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a
stylistically diverse catalogue of over 30 albums.
As many journalists have written over the years, Jeff is not one to be easily pegged, though
in a general sense it’s fair to say he largely trades in roots-oriented rock; wider reaching in
collaborations with the likes of roving guitar anthropologist Bob Brozman, American blues-
rocker Chris Whitley, India’s desert-dwellers Maru Tarang and world music virtuosos Bobby
Singh and Mamadou Diabate. Jeff’s work with the latter won the 2010 ARIA for Best World
Music Album, while he and Brozman took one home for Best Blues and Roots Music Album
in 2002. Jeff received that same award on his own in 2012 for the album ‘Carried In Mind’.
In 2021 Jeff published his first book – “Some Memories Never Die” – a memoir of three
decades on the road; Memories of gigs where the pay was akin to blood money, reflections
on how the road’s twists and turns can be lightened by the presence of fellow travellers and
occasionally darkened by them too.
