Get to know former “Teacher of the Year” John Konrad Wert. I will be seeing him perform twice in Austin for SXSW, and interviewing him for a Q&A to be released in the inaugural issue of Good Sign Magazine.

Konrad is a special education teacher who performs as Possessed By Paul James.  I had the pleasure of meeting Konrad and seeing him perform in Union City, Indiana last fall. Here is an excerpt from my write up following the experience:

“Much love and gratitude extended to a soul that burns fervently and for the well-being of others. Konrad Wert, performing as Possessed by Paul James, deposits a piece of his heart at each and every performance as medicine to heal all those who seek his light. His gifts are grand and without ego. They will touch the tips of your eyelids and manifest as tears that trickle down your cheek each time you recite his lyrics, and feel his spectrum of emotion poured into every inflection. It is both a privilege and an honor to be Possessed by Paul James, and we are grateful.”

Konrad will be performing at The White Horse on March 18th, and on Holy Mountain March 19th in Austin, as well being featured by SXSW Films.
