The Show is Over (LP, 2008)
God of Pharaohs (LP, 2004)



Flowing over keys, horn, bass and cello, William Von Hoene’s (Von) lyrics provoke listeners into trance as they attempt to linger on every last word. Even acapella, Von spits with a distinctive international flair reminiscent of Talib Kweli’s classic technique.

Von is the long anticipated continuation of a legacy of quality lyricists sprung from Chicago’s south side. Once a regular at Stanford University spoken word and open-mic showcases, Von has been focusing on his craft since acquiring a BA in sociology and minor in creative writing.

And opening for the likes of The Roots and Mos Def certainly hasn’t thrown a wrench in the gears for Von, who released his debut album “The Show is Over� in June 2008. Currently the enthusiastic mc is writing new music and performing for hip-hop heads all over the midwest.
