conny ochs Future Fables (LP, £17.50)label: exile on mainstream
Conny Ochs is heavily influenced by great rock and folk singer/songwriters like Woody Guthrie, Townes van Zandt, Nick Drake and others. Yet through his mix of acoustic and electric guitars Conny bears one of the most incredible voices out there; a soulful and dynamic clean style that invokes incredibly emotive feelings from the listener, from absolute joy through the simple things life offers, or of purely melancholic end-time inner blues. After having finished and released “Freedom Conspiracy” with Wino, our man kept touring and playing live to a growing audience coming from all kinds of musical backgrounds before returning to the studio in late summer 2015. Conny’s songs are trying to focus on the interplay between storytelling and visions – this he carves into the rough edges of songs that come out so natural, so organic and sonically sparkling. While keeping his approach pure to the heart Conny Ochs reaches a stark authenticity that draws you in and makes you a part of the music, his travels and struggles, and his search for freedom in life and song.
