Lay ears on Dave Lange and you will find yourself immediately drawn in by his unique sound. Yes, he plays the blues but not in a way you would expect, conjuring up a unique brew from the North Mississippi hill country seasoned with roots rock straight from the rust belt. Lange’s music is defined by a strong emphasis on the “groove” with driving rhythms and percussion, steady guitar riffs, few chord changes, and unconventional song structures. A three-string cigar box guitar, howling steel resonator, and finger-picked slide guitar give the music it’s edge while primal drum beats are pounded out by foot producing a trance-like boogie. Combined with smooth and smokey vocals, Lange delivers American roots music in a fresh new way.
