Q: I have always been struck by your willingness to expose yourself in your music - your heart, your desires, your pain. That kind of openness and vulnerability, which takes courage, is a core dharma principle. ~ A: I guess that’s been there. I would like to think I’ve always been Buddhist; it just took me a while to find my teacher. ~ Shambhala Sun: k.d. Lang Interview ~ retrieved November 1, 2013 © Shambala Sun

When k.d. lang released her first major-label album in 1987, she caused considerable controversy within the traditional world of country music. With her vaguely campy approach, androgynous appearance, and edgy, rock-inflected music, very few observers knew what to make of her or her music, although no one questioned her considerable vocal talents. That confusion never quite dissipated over the course of her career, even when she abandoned country music for torchy adult contemporary pop. ~ Allmusic: k.d.
