Grand Oak Opry
273 Goodhue St, Saint Augusta, MN 55102
We were struck by King Courteen's vocals and song-writing as soon as we were contacted about him, and are excited to introduce him to the Grand Oak Opry audience.Michael Gerlach, better known as King Courteen, likes to "build beautiful things from nothing". As a woodworker, he’s transformed razed relics from Milwaukee’s industrial past into furniture and visual art, and has explored for months to and from Cisco, Utah building sustainable buildings for local residents.Now dedicating his time to being a full time musician, King Courteen is funding his debut record, Old Adam, (recording in part in the Twin Cities) and bringing his music to small towns and cities across the country through crowdfunding and the support of his community. The Milwaukee Record says, King Courteen “constructs folk renderings known to captivate audiences using little more than the raw material of an acoustic guitar and his re-purposed choral background”.
