k.d. lang and The Siss Boom Bang, with special guest Teddy Thompson, the well-known British folk and rock musician. Celebrating 26 years of her recording career, k.d. lang has started fresh and recorded "Sing it Loud" with her own band, the Siss Boom Bang. Music director Joe Pisapia, guitarist Joshua Grange, keyboardist Daniel Clarke, bassist Lex Price & drummer Fred Eltringham perform with Lang.
She has won four GRAMMY® awards, eight Juno Awards, a BRIT, an AMA, a VMA, and four awards from GLAAD. In 1996, she received Canada’s highest civilian honor, the Order of Canada. She has appeared alongside such musical luminaries as Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Loretta Lynn, and Tony Bennett.
“She’s the best singer of her generation,” observed Bennett, who frequently toured with lang since their 2002 Wonderful World duets album. lang has contributed to numerous soundtracks, appeared in films, and is renowned for her live shows, prompting NY Times’ Stephen Holden to observe: “Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there.”
