Jeff & Cindy’s conversation with k.d. lang!
February 22nd, 2018 by Jeff & Cindy Hoyt
Jeff & Cindy were pretty nervous ahead of their interview with a performer they’ve adored ever since she first broke onto the scene in the late 80’s. They weren’t as nervous as k.d. was just before she sang Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” before a billion people watching the Olympics on television, but J&C needn’t have worried themselves. From the get-go, k.d. lang was open, funny, introspective and, well, wonderful. She talked with Jeff & Cindy about her ground-breaking album Ingenue, which is the focus of her upcoming tour, along with: her fabulous Vanity Fair cover shoot with Cindy Crawford; the timing of her coming out; how the wide open country in which she was raised informed her songwriting; and the perils of taking an activist’s stand for a cause one believes in. The conversation is threaded with 9 or 10 wonderful k.d. lang songs. Let this bit of radio wash over you like a sunny day on the Canadian prairie.
