LEXINGTON, Ky. — Coby Langham and Sean Whiting — two singer-songwriters from Danville and Paintsville respectively — have seen their fair share of open roads from behind the wheel of commercial trucks.
The time spent alone driving has provided inspiration for many songs which each artist will showcase when they join forces for a Jan. 5 collision of country, rock and soul at The Burl.
A lifelong native of Danville, Coby Langham’s first musical memories are of his great-grandmother playing the organ, It wasn’t until his teenage years that Langham picked up a guitar and played with friends. The music was put on the back burner upon graduation.
Re-energized to give music another go, Langham began writing and performing again nearly four years ago after connecting with area artists Jason Sinkhorn and Zane Hilton. The trio eventually formed the foundation of Coby Langham and the Citizen Band with Sinkhorn on bass and Hilton on guitar. The Citizen Band’s resulting sound is one of the honky tonk, foot stomping variety.
