Since the kick-off early 2012 of “K(ing) (O)f (T)he W(orld)” ( Erwin Java (gtr), Fokke de Jong (drs/bvox), Govert van der Kolm (Hammond/bvox) and Ruud Weber (leadvox/bgtr), things have developed prosperously for this Dutch blues-, rhythm & roots band.
Through the release of the 2 albums “Can’t Go Home “(2013) and “KOTW” (2014) the band definitely confirmed its status in the Dutch blues scene. Both albums scored sheer positive reviews as well in the Dutch as in the foreign music press.
But also the live reputation that has been built up through shows at festivals like the Rhythm & Blues Night Groningen, Bluesrock Tegelen and the Highlandsfestival, has contributed to the forementioned status. And the band is not only playing at festivals but is also a regular guest at Dutch rock venues like Paradiso Amsterdam, De Boerderij Zoetermeer, Hedon Zwolle and many others. A living proof that the band has succeeded in expressing the blues in its various forms. Furthermore, other than the press, also radio and TV is spotting the band: in march 2013 the group is live presenting “Can’t Go Home” in the radio show “TROS Music Café”. In that same period the band is making a live-appearance in the TV-show “Vrije Geluiden “ (transl. Free Sounds). The latter being the first time ever for a Dutch blues-orientated band.
The group has won 5 Dutch Blues Awards in 2014 (best drummer, best keyboardplayer, best bass player, best guitarist and best bluesband). Two unique live-appearances early 2014 on the prestigious late night TV-show “Pauw & Witteman” is confirming the bands growing nationwide recognition. On June 2nd 2014 the band is spotlighted for 45 minutes in a RTL7 TV-special called “Derksen on the Road”. 2014 is marked by no less than 60 KOTW-shows from which the one on the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam (July 13th) is considered to be one of the highlights. Also the band played their first shows in Germany, which is leading to, more shows over there. So we can expect something there in the near future. In November 2014 the soundbook “Pioniers van de Nederpop” (transl. Pioneers of Dutch Rock) is released as a result of forementioned “Derksen on the Road”. The DVD contains a.o. the TV-special concerning King Of The World where the CD contains a.o. 4 KOTW-songs. X-mass 2014 KOTW is playing 8 songs live in a regional TV-show called “ Jongens van het Noorden” (transl. Boys from the North). It ‘s another intimate portrait of the band. In this last month of that year KOTW is recording several live shows. The show at Dutch Rockvenue nr. 1 “Paradiso“ (Amsterdam) has got that special atmosphere. In May 2015 the album “Live at Paradiso” is released and has received nothing but raving reviews. And…the planning for a third studio-album is on the roll.
