VIC FIRTH SIGNATURE ARTIST
THOMAS LANG

Throughout his career, Austrian musician Thomas has impressed and inspired countless drummers not only with his advanced hand and foot technique, but also with his uncanny ability to play independent linear patterns around the kit. Monstrous chops aside, Lang also knows how to harness his amazing technical ability to play musically on the drumset, making him one of the most active touring and recording artists today. According to Lang, “Technique has nothing to do with music. It’s a tool, like a hammer: You can build a shed or you can build the Sistine Chapel.”

Thomas has worked with artists such as Geri Halliwell, Robbie Williams, John Wetton, B*Witched, Ozzy Osbourne, Bonnie Tyler, Billy Liesegang, The Clash, Falco, John Wetton, Steve Hackett, Nick Kershaw, Robert Fripp, Gianna Nannini, Lighthouse Family, Boyzone, Ronan Keating, Westlife, Kylie Minogue, Asia, Robert Trujillo, Ian Dury, and the Blockheads, Willi Langer, Falco, Cathy O'Meara, Safe The Robot, The Vienna Art Orchestra and many more.
