A cult legend of the Canadian folk scene, singer / songwriter Penny Lang earned a devoted fan following for her distinctive readings of folk, blues, country and gospel standards. A native of Montreal, Lang first emerged during the 1960s, honing her craft in prisons, hospitals, churches and summer camps; in the years to follow, she also performed at major folk festivals, and relentlessly toured clubs across North America.
Eventually Warner Bros. expressed interest in offering her a contract, but upon learning she would be expected to record with an electric backing band, the staunchly acoustic Lang refused the offer. By the mid-1970s she went into self-imposed exile, relocating to a rustic cabin in the remote wilderness region of Quebec. Lang did not resurface until 1988, at which time she returned to performing and began writing new songs; in 1991 she self-released her cassette-only comeback effort Yes!!, followed in 1992 by Live. Ain't Life Sweet appeared a year later, and in 1996 followed by Carry On Children.
