possessed

i know im way late on this guy, and this guy being konrad wert aka possessed by paul james. had heard his name being tossed around last year, and much like a lot of shit in my life, it goes one ear and out the other. so, im just sitting here, beer in hand after what seemingly was the longest work week of my life, browsing spotify. not even sure how i happened upon him, but fuck me if i aint glad that i did. if i would have heard this last year, it most definitely would have been in my top ten. still cant go back in time, and im just enjoying it in the present, and damn this is scratching me everywhere i itch. if you like dobros, foot stomps, mandolins, acoustic geetars, violins, etc combined with brilliant lyrics and a voice that pours out emotions that cant be faked, saddle up to this record. you will not be disappointed. oh, and he’s a one man band, and from what i hear a teacher as his fulltime gig.

    captain, another great discovery – always been drawn to the slightly outsider bands with full intentions intact (handsome family, vic chestnut, east river pipe, justin townes earle) – thanks ; beers to you when you are ever in the ATL

  2. Thanks for getting me onto this, man. I wasn’t totally sold, but then the vocals happened.
    Great fiddle playing too! The guy is really genuine sounding.
    Anyway, great review, dude.
    Look forward to reading about more of your discoveries in the future.
