John Bunzow- Albert Reda

Saturday, December 28, 2019, 8:00 PM

Subterranean Americana & Roots John Bunzow continues to establish himself as an inspired and innovative American roots singer/songwriter/guitarist of depth, substance and groove. “John destroys the boundaries between great rock, country, r&b, and soul music by owning his noteworthy sound with respect to the great artists who came before.” Ray Kennedy, Five time Grammy winner. Producer, Engineer, Musician (Steve Earle, Billy Joe Shaver) The Portland, Oregon, native has been called one of the finest roots writers- musicians on the current music scene. Bunzow, now based in Portland with regular commutes to Nashville, has built a long and storied career. Infused early with a strong love of Southern music – thanks to kin from that part of the country – John has developed his own unique fusion of roots rock and blues, seasoned with everything from reggae and country rock�to pop.�He counts among his “Mt. Rushmore of influences,” as he puts it, Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard, Tom Waits, Mike Bloomfield, Albert King, country picker Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Webb, Randy Newman, Steve Earle, and Jerry Garcia, among many. During his early years, Bunzow performed with bands that favored original music, including the Cowboy Angels and the X-Angels, as well as working as a solo singer/songwriter and even trafficking in a country music tour of truck stops and county fairs. John found himself bouncing around various music scenes including San Francisco, Seattle and LA. But it was in Nashville that his songwriting created new opportunities, Bunzow says. “My focus was always as a songwriter, and that is what brought me to Nashville – twice.” Albert Reda is a mutil award winning bassist (Multiple Muddy Awards from the Cascade Blues Association)
