Hunter Lang

Hunter LangHunter Lang is a talented singer/songwriter and pianist. He has studied classical music with Lithuanian virtuoso Broniaslavia Kimel and the brilliant Memphis musician, Joan Gilbert.

Hunter has also studied at the Grammy Award-winning Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville, Florida. In 2008, Hunter performed in master classes at the New England Conservatory and the Longy School of Music in Boston.

He also studied songwriting and commercial music at The Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. While pursuing his degree at the Universtiy of Memphis, Hunter has had an active performing career, entertaining in piano bars, theatres, and at political functions. He intends to continue touring, sharing his music with a wider audience. He will release his first album in 2013.

Unlike so many today, Hunter is not an artist that is made in a studio. As a performer, he doesn't just deliver an act; he leaves the audience remembering their experience for a lifetime.

Hunter gives an interactive show, delivering an emotional and physical performance. Classically trained, he has an extraordinary skill playing the piano, producing a sound that is all his own.

It is said that if you combine Jerry Lee Lewis, Billy Joel, and Mozart, you would have Hunter Lang. His unique voice leaves the crowd always wanting more. Hunter strives to change the idea of music that is released in today's pop culture.

Instead of what he refers to as "bubble gum music" (a song you chew up and spit out), he writes songs with lyrics that are bound to stand the test of time.
In general, Hunter is a showman who uses humor and charm to woo the audience. He is a combination of new and old, appealing to a very wide demographic.

You can hear Hunter's light hearted radio program full of your favorite standards and Jazz every Friday from 10:00am until 1:00pm on WUMR U92FM, "The Jazz Lover."
