The ultimate pleasure in witnessing musical icon k.d. lang perform on stage – besides basking in the beauty of her astonishing, incomparable voice – is the deep connection she shares with her audience. Their mutual admiration and affection is undeniable, and it has arguably been the fuel propelling lang from one remarkable recording to the next.
“You have to respect your audience,” lang asserts. “Without them, you’re essentially standing alone, singing to yourself. That’s not particularly appealing to an artist who craves the communal experience of sharing new ideas and sounds. The ideal scenario is to have an audience; to build and nurture a bond with them.”
The bond k.d. shares with her fans has deepened over time and extended through such glorious, now-classic recordings as Shadowland (1988), Absolute Torch & Twang (1989), Ingenue (1992), and Live By Request (2001) which have garnered a mountain of awards, including multiple GRAMMYs. Her most recent recording is an album of duets with Tony Bennett, entitled A Wonderful World (& Grammy-nominated as Best Pop Collaboration), of which k.d. says “I can’t even begin to say how much it means to me. He’s an amazing, gracious man. I keep wondering to myself, where does one go from here?”
If you’re k.d. lang, you conquer yet another creative mountain, adding one more element to a brilliant career filled with achievements.
