Acantha Lang is a Soul/Blues artist born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. After moving to New York City, she began honing her skills and performing regularly at the Harlem Grill and the iconic Cafe Wha? (where Jimi Hendrix famously played).
While in NYC, she met and collaborated with Robert Randolph (and The Family Band) – named as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s ‘100 Greatest Guitarists’. Robert asked if he could re-record one of Acantha’s songs, ‘Gonna Be All Right’, for his Sony-released album ‘Got Soul’, which went on to be nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
By now, Acantha had relocated to London, where she further developed her Soul/Blues/Funk sound, performing with her band at many of London’s most famous venues.
“…Her voice blew me away. She is truly unforgettable…”

“When I first saw Acantha perform, I knew she was a star in every sense of the word. She has a soulful voice reminiscent of Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples, and other legends of Blues & Soul music. She’s the real deal”
