Renowned Dutch radio station VPRO 3voor12 — known for being streaming the full Roadburn Festival lineup each year — is now streaming WINO & CONNY OCHS‘ album Heavy Kingdom in its entirety, RIGHT HERE.
The legacy of SCOTT “WINO” WEINRICH in the world of heavy music is indisputable and ever evolving, and here he teams up with CONNY OCHS, a songwriter so pure and honest in his output that he seems to be the perfect partner for the straightforward WEINRICH. The two met for the first time in 2010 when OCHS was supporting WINO on his acoustic solo tour promoting his acclaimed solo album, Adrift.
Through music they discovered a very similar approach to life and art, and a shared wisdom in creating music. It really seemed like two souls becoming one after they got to know each other. Together the two wrote, performed and recorded an incredible set of soulful tunes that speak for themselves, as well as a Townes Van Zandt cover. The artwork contains drawings by both WEINRICH and OCHS, and follows the dedicated and deeply personal approach of the whole album.
European fans can catch the two artists performing together throughout all of March and most of April on their massive tour in support of Heavy Kingdom. Stay up to date with the full tour itinerary here, and watch for more tour updates throughout 2012.
