- Since the release of her first album, a truly western experience in 1984, k.d. lang has galvanized listeners with her amazing voice, while battling for a place in the music industry and fighting off prejudice against her appearance and attitude. William Robertson's k.d. lang: Carrying the Torch was the first biography of lang, taking us from her tomboy girlhood in Consort, Alberta, through her entry into show business and the making of her first five albums and her first film, to her move away from country music to easy listening jazz and adult-oriented pop.
WILLIAM ROBERTSON lives in Saskatoon, where he balances homemaking with writing and occasional teaching at the University of Saskatchewan.
