Peter Lang The DNA Of The American Musical Experience

(PR) The New York Times said in November '07 that America had lost sight of its musical roots. In March '08 Guitar Player magazine hailed Peter Lang's new CD Testament as "the DNA of the American musical experience."

Lang describes the early blues of Testament as "a tribute to the bloody, beautiful music that hooked me at age eight, that made me pick up a guitar at ten." The CD consists of 16 searing covers of seminal blues songs going back to the 19th century, plus a stunning 16-page booklet illuminating the real roots of American music.

Lang agrees with the New York Times. "It's similar to the deregulation of the financial industry--media got deregulated, radio got dumbed down, corporate greed trumped core values," Lang says. "In the case of traditional American music--our cultural birthright--a public asset got privatized, homogenized and left for dead. I'm resuscitating it."

Praised by Blues Review, Dirty Linen, Guitar Player and others, Testament is the 12th album from a 40-year career for the Grammy-nominated Lang.
