How Old is Eja Lange?

Eja Lange is 22 years old and was born in Ontario, Canada, on August 12, 2001, as the first child of the marital union between Shania Twain and Robert John Lange. She was born about 8 years after his parents exchanged their marital vows in 1993, and he is the only offspring that was produced in his parents’ marriage before they got divorced.

Eja (actually pronounced as “Asia”) was kept away from the public for most of his life, probably to help him focus on his studies and to escape pressure from the press on what is perceived as his parents’ messy divorce. A lot of Shania’s fans were thrilled when she posted a picture in which the now grown-up Eja was with a few A-List celebrities in Hollywood. The photo featured Shania and her current husband, Frederic Thiebaund, John Travolta, and his daughter, Ella Bleu, Tom Hanks, and Rita Wilson.

Eja Lange’s Parents Got Married In 1993

Eja Lange’s parents’ love story began sometime in the early 1990s when Robert John Lange – then a songwriter and record producer, first heard one of her songs and her incredible voice, and he desired to meet whoever was behind the voice. After making a few calls, he eventually got to speak with the then-relatively unknown Shania, and they were on the phone for several hours.

The two eventually got to meet about 6 months after their first phone call and some sparks must have flown between them, as they not only got to work together, but a relationship developed between them from then on. They got married on December 28, 1993, and served non-alcoholic champagne at the wedding as Lange is a teetotaller.  He had the song (Everything I Do) I Do It For You played at their wedding as a sign of his dedication to her, and they welcomed their first child, Eja Lange, on August 12, 2001, in Ontario, Canada.

Shania’s marriage to Robert Lange would go on to last for more than a decade and a half before their marital boat was rocked by a scandalous act by her husband. It was reported that Robert Lange was having an affair with Shania Twain’s best friend and secretary, Marie-Ann Theibaund. She thereafter filed for divorce, which was finalized on June 2010 – after being together for 17 years.

What Does Eja Lange do for a living?

Eja Lange currently works and expresses his passion as a music writer, music arranger, and producer.  As the scion of a very powerful musical family all over the world, Eja has decided to be a perfect mix of both his father Robert John Lange – a music writer/composer and producer, and mother, Shania Twain – one of the world’s best country/pop/ballad musicians of all time.

After Eja’s birth and his parents’ challenges in their marriage, his mother decided to keep him away from the public and media for a while, which soon turned into most of his young life. So nothing really was known about what he does or what was happening in his life at that point in time. His mother just began revealing certain things about him recently.

In an interview that Shania Twain had with Sounds Like Nashville in 2017, she revealed that her son, Eja, had been working very hard at making his own kind of music for some years now. He listened to a lot of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) when he was still very young and it’s a genre that he really likes. He also listens a lot to Hans Zimmer – who he draws a lot of inspiration from on classical music and film scores.

Eja’s mother stated that whenever she has the opportunity to see him work on creating music, she always cherishes it and loves seeing him do his thing. The only regret she has about his style of music is that it is not related to her own genre, as she would have really loved to work with him some more and teach him how she was able to become one of the most recognized musicians in the world, even though she came from very humble beginnings.

Eja Lange Has Some Musical Works To His Credit

Even though Eja Lange does not yet have his mother’s fame and popularity, he has begun taking steps to make sure that his name is remembered for creating his own kind of music. He has 5 credits in writing songs and in music production to date. In fact, he was the one that wrote the song “Number One” which is one of the songs on Shania Twain’s latest album in 2023. Eja’s EDM preference is definitely imprinted on the track.

Eja Lange’s Music Style Is A Sharp Contrast To Shania Twain’s Style

Shania Twain stated in an interview in 2021 that though her son is also in the same music industry as her and his father, their music styles and preferences are a sharp contrast to each other – including how they make their music. While she prefers to sing while playing the guitar as much as possible, Eja prefers to use virtual musical instruments and digital Synthesizers to create his own brand of music.

Shania Twain prefers to record and create her own music using Digital Audio Workstation tools such as Pro Logic, and Eja prefers to use Logic which is quite different from the environment that she is used to. Shania has a very powerful voice and vocal range and she actually prefers to sing for her audience, her son, on the other hand, prefers to write music only and create the sounds/beats which can be sung by other artists – just like his father did for Shania and others in the past.

Eja Lange’s Introvert Nature Keeps Him From Performing

Shania Twain stated in an interview with Kelly Clarkson that her son, Eja Lange, is an introvert who does not socialize much with others, and she believes that he decided not to become a performing artiste for this very important reason. She believes that his choice not to perform is actually the best for him, as it would take a lot of pressure off him, and allow him to continue to enjoy doing what he knows how to do best – which is writing/arranging music and producing songs.

Eja Lange’s Siblings

The marriage between Eja Lange’s parents produced only one offspring and that is Eja himself, as they had no other child during the 17 years that they were legally married before their divorce in 2010.

However, when Shania Twain got married to her best friend, Marie-Ann Thiebaud’s ex-husband in 2011, she adopted his daughter, Johanna, as her stepdaughter, and she is the only sibling that Eja Lange has to date.
