Canadian singer k.d. Lang is one of the few artists who truly defy categorisation. A mezzo-soprano, her beautiful vocal range allows her to perform whatever kind of music she wants to – from country to rock, pop to folk, Canadian classics to songs about smoking.
Lang released her debut album, Shadowland, in 1988 and now has seven studio albums under her belt, with the most recent being 2008's Watershed. She has also done several collaboration albums with The Reclines, Tony Bennett, The Siss Boom Bang and case/lang/veirs.
Lang has won four Grammy Awards, eight Juno Awards, a BRIT, an AMA, a VMA and four awards from GLAAD. In 2013 she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards, and last year received the Alberta Order of Excellence Award.
In addition, Lang has contributed songs to film soundtracks, made several film and television appearances and is an activist for gay and animal rights.
With a career now stretching over 30 years, k.d. lang is a compelling performer. Don't miss the opportunity to experience her complete and constant brilliance when she plays a handful of shows in the UK this July! She has been continuing to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her platinum-selling breakthrough album, Ingénue, which was re-issued in 2017.
