Album info

Jon's second solo CD is the cautionary tale of a singer who rises from
obscurity to opulence only to gulp heartily from the poison cup of
compromise and betrayal to sink back into the dirt and darkness from
whence he came. It’s a thinly veiled damning of a culture that trades
in optimism, grandeur and glitz, but ultimately depends on sucking
people dry.Lofty Deeds shows Langford’s immense and
varied talents in a sharp new light. Yes, his fondness for blurring the
irrelevent line between punk and country is here in spades, and the wit
that marries the personal with the political is not lost. But, with
concise writing and stripped down arrangements, this CD nudges his
powerful voice (full of bluster and rolling rrr’s) and lyrics front and
center like he’s ready to burst out of your hi-fi and chew on your ear.(From Bloodshot Records)
