Artist Info

Zack Kouns

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Zack Kouns is from Ironton, Ohio, United States, in a remote part of Appalachia. "Crab Nebula," is where he will tell you. A distant relative of Sun Ra? He appears now and then, plays some shows, and disappears back into nowhere again. Quite parallel to his music in a way: you never really know where he's coming from or where he's going, but somehow it works.

Despite the rarity of his public appearances though, Zack Kouns is known to be prolific with his release of recorded music. Through an undocumented amount of releases on boutique labels including Chocolate Monk, Bumtapes, Isle of Man, Teenage Whore Tapes, Clinical Archives, Ownness, Wintage Records & Tapes and Tired Trails Collective, Zack Kouns has found his way into the hearts of the international experimental music, outsider folk and lo-fi pop movements. But these records aren't thrown together, nor are they throwaways, in any sense. Each composition is carefully constructed around a certain theme - Zack Kouns draws heavily from religion, mythology, ancient history, and romantic philosophy - and follows through musical progressions, jumping song to song from free folk to Nick Cavesque ballads to ambient electronics to free jazz, but with subtlety and thoughtfulness.

Author, graphic artist, adventurer, theosophist and composer - Zack Kouns writes modern liturgical music, death jazz, esoterica and apocalyptic/hermetic music. He hails from a hidden Rural Appalachian location that is thick with trees and away from human beings.

He's toured on four continents including lengthy tours in North and South America, Europe and Australia.

A book by Zack Kouns entitled Christopher Columbus Is as Bright as the Moon has recently been published, and is currently the only book in the Library of Congress in the genre of revisionist history, and he also writes for the comic series Homo Novus a work created by Zack Kouns that concerns the evolution of mankind and the eternal clash of the urge toward light and life and the urge toward annihilation that plagues mankind.
