‘A Death Divine’ is a meeting of giants between two unique guitarists, Ronni Le Tekrø and Ledfoot.
Ronni Le Tekrø is best known for his unique playing style and as one of the founders of legendary TNT, and he has several times ranked as one of the world’s best guitarists regardless of genre. In addition to TNT, Ronni has released several solo albums and collaborated with a number of artists, including Terje Rypdal. Ledfoot (Tim Scott McConnell) recently won Spellemann (Norwegian Grammy) in the blues class for his latest album ‘White Crow’. Leedfoot has developed his own playing style using a 12-string guitar with extra thick strings, steel plates and brass slide, often accompanied by stomp-box. In addition to four albums as Ledfoot, he has released several solo albums under his full name, played in The Havalinas, been covered by Bruce Springsteen (High Hopes) and played in the NRK series ‘Exit’. Together they are Ledfoot & Ronni Le Tekrø, armed with a bunch of fantastic songs, a lot of guitars and the amplifiers set to 11 to blow you off the field.
I met Tim in 2009 when he went up to my studio to record ‘Damned’. We immediately connected as artists and as friends. In 2018 we started talking about seriously doing a record together and experimented by improvising in the studio, the result was ‘Imperfect World‘ and ‘High Time‘ both of which have ended up on our debut record ‘A Death Divine‘, out on the 2nd of October. Two guitarists with dramatically different approaches and both being prolific writers make for a very interesting landscape and chemistry, this reflects in our record. No rules, no category. Just music from the heart.
