The Blue Note Lounge 2407 N. Robinson Ave. Oklahoma City, OK 73103
Utilizing the banjo, guitar, and fiddle, Konrad Wert--better known as Possessed by James--is a one man wrecking crew of a band. Each invigorating show comes with ecstatic jubilation from this 2011 Independent Music Award winner for Best Alt. Country Album. Soulful and primal, worldly and spiritual, raw and thoughtful and uncompromising--that's what listeners get with songs ranging from issues of love and sexuality to demons, God, salvation and desperation. Wert's mix of blues and vintage folk howls passionately with a sense of explosive freedom and latent rage that seems to have somehow emerged from the wilderness.
