Though he announced himself 12 years ago with the anthem Virtuous Woman, roots singer Warrior King says there is more to him than hit singles.
He credits steady touring in Europe and North America for keeping his career vibrant. He continues that trend when he performs in Germany at the Open Air Almsischer show in Ubersee.

The diminutive vocalist broke through in 2001 with the radio favourites Virtuous Woman and Never Go Where Pagans Go.
Those songs, he notes, "are very much in demand all over the world. Those are songs that made me who I am today."
