Ledfoot & Ronni Le Tekrø

“Shut Up” is de eerste single!

 

Ledfoot (een Amerikaanse singersongwriter en 12-snaren gitarist die rond 2000 in Noorwegen is komen wonen, speelde met The Rockats & The Havalinas en zijn huidige muziek onder de noemer ‘gothic blues’ zet) en Ronni Le Tekro (een Noorse melodische rock gitarist, bekend van o.a. TNT, Jorn Lande, Terje Rypdal en Mads Eriksen) werkten voor het eerst samen in 2009 aan Ledfoot’s aka Tim Scott McConnell’s album “Damned” in Ronni’s studio. Het klikte tussen deze twee meesterlijke gitaristen, een vriendschap was geboren en vele muzikale studio- en live-samenwerkingen volgden, maar van een echt duo album was nog geen sprake. In 2018 experimenteerden ze wat in de studio met gezamenlijke songs, maar het succes van Ledfoot’s laatste album “White Crow” (het won een Spelleman, een soort van Noorse Grammy) zorgde voor wat vertraging. Begin dit jaar werd er echter serieus werk van gemaakt en “A Death Divine” is het resultaat; je hoort een mix van ‘dark singersongwriter’s blues and melodic rock – just music from the heart!’.

Ronni Le Tekro (mainly known by his melodic guitar work with the Norwegian hardrock band TNT, but also worked along Jorn Lande, Terje Rypdal, Mads Eriksen a.o.) and Ledfoot aka Tim Scott McConnell (an American singer-songwriter and 12-string guitarist who lives in Norway since 2000, worked with The Rockats and The Havalinas and developed his own Gothic Blues-style) first met in 2009 when Tim went up to Ronni’s high end recording studio to record his album “Damned”. They immediately connected as artists and as friends, which is why “Damned” turned into a double record with a ‘solo’-version and ‘band‘-version featuring Ronni’s unique guitar playing style. Shortly after they started doing shows together solely because they enjoyed it. Since then they also worked together on numerous records as studio musicians, producers and songwriters. In 2018 Ronni and Tim started talking about seriously doing a record together and experimented by improvising in the studio. Because of the success of Ledfoot’s latest solo-album “White Crow”, which recently won a Spelleman price (the Norwegian Grammy) in the blues genre, they stopped working on it, but early 2020 they found the time to pick up on this and “A Death Divine” is the result. You’ll hear two great guitarists with dramatically different approaches and both being prolific writers make for a very interesting landscape and chemistry, this reflects on their debut…. no rules, no category… just music from the heart!
