“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.” —The New York Times

Description

k.d. lang is that rare performer who, over 25 years as a major-label artist, has matured before our very ears. The Western Canada native launched her career with a blend of country-rock stylings and playfully punk-like attitude, by turns whimsical and subversive; back then, she practically put the alternative in alt-country. But from the very beginning, her bravura singing belied her kitschy cowgirl outfits and spiky hair; anyone lucky enough to attend very first appearance in the United States, on a triple bill of unsigned artists at New York City’s Bottom Line, could hear that she was marked for greatness.

With Hymns of the 49th Parallel, her 2005 Nonesuch Records debut, lang presented her most compelling set of material by other songwriters—all of them, in this case, fellow Canadians—as well as a gorgeous version of her own “Simple.” lang’s interpretation of Leonard Cohen’s oft-covered “Hallelujah” is understatedly stunning; with good reason, it has become, along with her breathtaking cover of Roy Orbison’s “Crying,” an in-concert showstopper. Her latest release is 2011’s Sing It Loud, an album of new material with her band The Siss Boom Bang. Along the way lang has won four Grammys, eight Juno Awards in Canada, and Canada’s highest civilian award, The Order of Canada.
