Cartoonist, children’s book author, anthropologist and multi-instrumentalist Val Ockert crafts powerful, soaring melodies with global imagery.
Whenever he plays a raucous venue, the room is instantly chilled into a place of smiling, pacified listeners. You can smell the sweat and feel the tears that have gone into creating his clever, observational lyrics, accompanied by a lived-in voice full of gritty emotion.
Growing up in Canada, influenced by Irish music, alternate Country, 1950’s waltz, jazz and folk he brings together an eclectic mix of talented musicians to soothe the heart in a troubled world.
Val is joined by Tracey Stride on keyboard, banjo and charango. On their first album, “Lane Hog Mind with a Timid Heart”, Val and Tracey consider themselves to be blessed to play with Slim Pickens on vocals, upright bass, guitar, guitar, organ and percussion, Dr. Baz (Barry Ferrier) on lead guitar and accordion, with Neil McCann on drums.
Music seems to come so simply to some people. Val is one of those people.
