“One-man band Konrad Wert grew up in a Mennonite family, raised by preacher father and a piano player mother, which accounts for both the baptized-in-fire-soul and musical versatility heard in his gritty Old World music. Wert’s mix of blues and vintage folk howls with a sense of explosive freedom and latent rage-not unlike an Amish kid emerging from the wilderness to discover America -that instills his simple guitar/fiddle/stomp-box arrangements with unusual passion. Having toured Europe on the strength of his self-titled LP for Italy’s Shake Your Ass Records, Wert most recently abandoned Austin and retreated once again into the Colorado mountains to write another batch of soul-baring songs.” - The Onion America’s Finest News Source
