WINO & CONNY OCHS head out on the road starting this Tuesday, 20th March 2012 in support of their album ‘Heavy Kingdom‘ which was released earlier this year in January via Exile On Mainstream Records and Please Note, an extra date has now been added for Friday 23rd March which is an Instore Performance at the Truck Store in Oxford.
The album contains eleven soulful tunes written by Wino and Conny together. The songs speak for themselves and personalities shine truth within. The album contains one cover song by Townes Van Zandt – an artist Conny and Wino deeply admire. Four of the songs were written on one day in Berlin in Summer 2011, among them ‘Heavy Kingdom‘ which marks the first song they ever wrote together.
Their first recording session was at the Baltic Sea resort on Rugen island in August 2011, during the beach party/ jam session/ hang out where Wino and Conny first met. The tracks were later twisted into shape in a second recording session at the seminal Kabumm Studios in Berlin. The artwork contains drawings by both artists and follows the dedicated and deeply intense approach of the whole album, you can also read Ollie’s review of ‘Heavy Kingdom‘ HERE.
