The first single from German folk/rock icon CONNY OCHS and his bold fourth solo LP, Doom Folk, has been released ahead of its impending February release through Exile On Mainstream. @popmatters has premiered an official video for the LP's "Dark Tower," and writes, "Through OCHS is beloved in the heavy rock community, 'Dark Tower' transcends musical boundaries, with an appeal that recalls Soundgarden at its most tuneful and emotive. OCHS' voice is front and center as he delivers the tune's moving lyrics over a musical setting that is meditative and deeply impactful." Doom Folk was fully written and performed by CONNY OCHS, recorded at Kabumm Studio, Golzow in Germany, produced and engineered by Thommy Krawallo. Doom Folk will see release through Exile On Mainstream on February 15th. Find US preorders at earsplitdistro.com and internationally via mainstreamrecords.de. Upcoming shows below:

Don’t forget! The Desert Rose album release show is on January 31st at @thelocalnash . The end of THIS month! There to kick off the show will be @reverielaneband Go check them out! Their new single, Less Is More, comes out on the 25th!!
On “All for Money,” @greenskybluegrass shows that it does, in fact, play “in a rowdy way.” Look no further than the aforementioned tracks, the propulsive lead single “Do it Alone,” and the electric country-blues of “It’s Not Mine Anymore” to hear that. But by successfully and seamlessly incorporating more jam and rock overtones into a bluegrass setup, Greensky shows that maybe the rules governing bluegrass aren’t quite as rigid as one might think.

Live clip of “Dreamin’” from last Saturday at @lucialawrenceks.
This song was inspired by reading hateful conversation in the comments sections of Facebook. It’s ok to have different opinions than other people and it doesn’t mean we can’t get along in this place. It sure would be boring if we all thought the same way..
I am back in the studio working on a full length @cosmic_western_duo album with producer @martinfarrelljr! Just put down the acoustic guitar track for “The Peculiar Song” so here is a picture of Peculiar, Missouri to celebrate 🎉. Look closely and you can see the bus and my grandma’s horses!
Several of the songs on this album were inspired by simple, country living with my grandma. Although that year was short, we made memories that will last a lifetime and I cannot wait to share some of the songs we wrote while we were out there🤠.
