Jeff Lang: Some Memories Never Die

By Blue Mountains Theatre
Posted: 23 May 2021
Guitarist-singer-songwriter Jeff Lang, described by Rolling Stone magazine as “Australia’s best roots-music musician”, celebrates the release of his first book with an intimate evening of words and music.

Jeff Lang has built a reputation for making startling and influential music that is accomplished, intricate, gutsy, melodic and loaded with soul.  Often taking unexpected turns, he has consistently inspired his audiences by creating a stylistically diverse catalogue of over 30 albums, accumulating three ARIA awards along the way.

But with every well-credentialed artistic soul, evolving and diving into the unknown is a step that is never too far away and so in 2019 Jeff sat down and began to write what would become his first book.

Some Memories Never Die, the resulting memoir of three decades on the road, contains memories of gigs where the pay was akin to blood money, reflections on how the road's twists and turns can be lightened by the presence of fellow travellers and occasionally darkened by them too.   

“This is Jeff Lang’s guide to the often hilarious life of a jobbing musician. He lived these tales so you can laugh in comfort” - Don Walker.

“Jeff’s passion surges like an ocean, his humour glides through the torrent like a catamaran:  manned by a grinning feline.  Please catch a ride” - Tim Rogers.

In celebration of the book’s release, Jeff Lang will take to the stage to share tales from his book – by turns humorous and profound; and perform songs drawn from his impressive back catalogue.  The audience will also be invited to participate in a rare Q&A session.  

This event is presented by Music Hunter & Blue Mountains Theatre in association with Top Shelf Productions
