Midnight And The City
When asked about his love of music, and how this influenced ‘Midnight And The City’, Lang had the following to say:
“I always loved music as a kid, and music started way earlier for me at a young age. My father and I
used to listen to Tom Petty records in his ‘93 Mercury Capri, and I still have that tape today. That
record changed my life.”
“All my friends were in a band, and I wanted to join the band. My friend Niall’s stepfather had a guitar,
and I would noodle along to my friend Niall’s’ nonsense. I would go to Niall’s house and would go right
to that guitar. I convinced my parents to end up buying a guitar and they ended up getting me a fender
telecaster. I learned a lot of my chops from my friend Jake, whose father was Bob Lanza, an East
Coast Hall of Fame Blues Player. I saw Jake and his father play an Allman Brother’s track at a local
watering hole, and I saw the connection between music through both of their guitars and the
relationship between father and son connecting through something that connects us all: music.”
