Lay ears on Dave Lange for the first time and you will find yourself immediately drawn in by his unique sound. Yes, he plays the blues but not in the way you would expect. Lange conjures up a country style of blues that is both unique and specific to a region lying just outside of the Mississippi Delta in what is known as the North Mississippi Hill Country. His music can be described as having a strong emphasis on the “groove” with driving rhythms and percussion, steady guitar riffs, few chord changes, and unconventional song structures. A cigar box guitar, howling steel resonator, and gritty electric slide playing give the music it’s edge while primal drum beats pounded out on foot-drums produce a “hypnotic boogie”. Lange’s smooth Clapton-esque vocals compliment his highly original sound delivering American roots music in a familiar and fresh way.
