This release, which is climbing the Music Row charts, was written by Von himself. “Memphis, Tennessee is famous for the influential strains of Blues, Soul, Rock’n’Roll,” says Von. “There’s so much history there, especially with Sun Studios and the major artists that came from there like Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash. I knew one day I had to take a road trip to Graceland and see everything that Memphis had to offer.”
While incorporating a Memphis Soul sound into his own Country style, he has garnered the attention from thousands of fans across Canada and the United States and is gearing up for a full-fledge tour this summer.
"I’m Going To Memphis" is off his debut album, "Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda", which was recently released and features a dozen of his original songs, all written by Von. The album peaked in the Top 70 of the iTunes Country Chart.
