Live Performance Training

Lang was trained in live performance when he worked for a company just out of high school. It was the early 80's, the heyday of new wave, punk, and pop, and the company was called Showcase and produced bands that performed an average of 500 shows a year. He traveled with that company for 4 years performing approximately 2000 shows in the US, Canada and Australia.

Showcase was endorsed by the music instrument companies of Pearl drums, Gibson guitars, Lab Series amps, and Moog keyboards and provided real world feedback on the development of new products due to the rigorous touring schedules.

This was the training ground that gave him much of the experience he gained before moving to Nashville and playing professionally for major 
label recording artists which he's done for the past 30 years. 

He's played, sung and shared the stage with artists such as Grammy and Dove award winners Michael W. Smith, Rich Mullins, and Michael McDonald to name a few.

His involvement in the Rock, Pop, Country and CCM music industries, has included work as a songwriter for BMG publishing, as an artist with BlissBliss signed to REX records (with labelmates Sixpence None the Richer), with BlissBliss bringing the label their first #1 and also as an independent record producer for numerous artists. The Jay Sekulow Band, which he recently played with, had their video cover of Boston’s Foreplay/Longtime viewed over 2 million times. Jay Sekulow Band Boston cover Foreplay/Longtime

“Working with Lang was a great experience. His instincts were spot on, and he shares his knowledge in such a helpful, creative way. I honestly can’t imagine preparing for another tour without him!”

Francesca Battistelli, Dove Award winner

“We worked on our show with Lang in preparation for a private showcase for a major Nashville label. We had a great time custom designing our show and working on arrangements with Lang. His advice was a real help! Oh, by the way… we got the record deal!” 

Brian Henningsen, The Henningsens, Sony Records Nashville

"Lang Bliss’ wealth of knowledge, wisdom and insight into performance arts and production is astounding! And what comes out even stronger is his heart for God and for His people to connect with Him in the modern congregational worship experience. He so beautifully blended together the heart of worship and our role on platform to lead people and communicate with them to connect with God in Worship. His teachings applied in so many ways on how to improve our delivery as a team and think differently about how to lead worship with a higher degree of excellence. He expanded our perspective on the performing arts and the impact of his teaching will be a benefit to our team for years to come. Lifegate loves Lang!"

Jake Adams – Pastor of Worship and Production, Lifegate Church

“How blessed I am our paths met! Working with Lang was life changing. In 2 hours, he broke through barriers that have held me back for years. I can’t describe how much confidence I gained.”
