Some of his biggest influences include: Muddy Waters, Woody Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, Huddie (Ledbelly) Ledbetter, Townes Van Zandt, John Lee Hooker, Tom Waits, Greg Brown and Josh Ritter.

Although he does cover some songs, the vast majority of the music he plays, he has written and composed himself. His storytelling style of using his music to tell personal tales of the characters in his songs forms a bridge between his audience and himself.

He has a confidence in his ability that is both real and compelling, not to mention his lyrics, which are complex and absorbing. Born and raised in the Black Hills of western South Dakota, Lang draws a great deal of inspiration from his upbringing. He first started playing the guitar at a young age and with his first strum found his life’s calling. He moved to Bozeman in 2002 in pursuit of that dream. Since that time he has built a solid reputation throughout the area as one of Montana’s premier talents.
