k.d. lang

Four-time GRAMMY® winner k.d. lang is one of the most beloved songwriters and song interpreters in popular music. Bucking simple definitions of country music in early albums that were true to tradition while playfully making the genre modern, lang, who grew up in Western Canada, made one of the finest albums of the 1980s in Shadowland, her countrypolitan collaboration with the late, great producer Owen Bradley. She became a bona-fide pop star with her 1992 hit “Constant Craving” and has continued to expand our notions of terms like “adult” and “contemporary” with albums that touch upon jazz, Brazilian music, standards, and contemporary classical music. She has recorded and toured with Tony Bennett, who has called her the greatest voice of her generation, and her songs have appeared in numerous films, including Percy Adlon’s Salmonberries, in which she also starred. She has received the Order of Canada, her home nation’s highest award. Currently, she is anticipating the release of a new album, a self-titled collaboration with fellow vocalists Neko Case and Laura Veirs.
