k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang
Previously Performed in: 2011, 1985
(AB/ USA) Cabaret, Country, Pop
From her whimsical, subversive roots 25 years ago blending country music with a punk esthetic, this multiple Grammy and Juno Award-winning artist’s career has combined her love of country with sophisticated, emotive torch singing wrapped in an amalgam of jazz, Western music and a little samba. lang's interpretation of Leonard Cohen's oft-covered "Hallelujah" is understatedly stunning and her cover of Roy Orbison's "Crying" breathtaking.
Her latest album, Sing it Loud, will be released on Nonesuch Records April 12 and is lang’s first record made entirely with her own band since her career-launching Reclines albums. The Siss Boom Bang is Joe Pisapia (multi-instrumentalist/co-producer/musical director), Daniel Clarke (keyboards), Fred Eltringham (drums/percussion), Joshua Grange (baritone guitar, dobro), and Lex Price (bass).
