The pure existence of music so immaculate in its creational proces means happiness. Happiness about the fact that there still is something under the surface and the ancient intention for music remains valid.
Conny Ochs draws himself near this most primordial creation of music – with a pristine commitment to his own emotionality. What is channelled into his music, tone and lyrics is nothing but the truth. Sometimes happy, sometimes sad, sometimes nasty, sometimes nice, sometimes begging, sometimes proud, sometimes cheerful, sometimes bitter, sometimes lost, sometimes found.
Bound to a tradition and history of great acoustic craftmanship drawn over the American continent but not limited to that Conny explores the realms of what of your inner self can sonically be pictured once you are on your own and armed with a guitar and your voice. The path has been walked by many before but it doesn’t make it a worn out road.
Just like all records involving Conny “Black Happy” was engineered, mixed and mastered by Thommy Krawallo in Berlin in a pure analogue manner.
