Cal Scott and Richard Moore welcome ex-Nashville Cat John Bunzow to the next Songwriter Circle at The Vault at Gastro Mania, formerly OConnors, Monday, June 3 at 7:00pm.  This series is sponsored by Hearing Health of Raleigh Hills.

It is John Bunzows mix of eclectic musical influences  meldling blues, country, rock and even jazz - that have helped establish him as an original artist of heartfelt depth, substance and style. Hes as likely to draw on his love of the music of scuffling barroom bard Tom Waits, as he is the smooth R&B and soul of Marvin Gaye, the iconic folk wisdom of Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Ry Cooder or the blues of Albert King.

After beginning his musical career in the Northwest scene playing in popular all-original bands Cowboy Angels and X-Angels for over two decades, John set his sights on songwriter heaven  Nashville  scoring a songwriting contract with EMI Nashville/Famous Music and a recording contract with Liberty/Capitol Records. He quickly found his services in big demand with Nashville recording artists and had the opportunity to write for and perform with some of country and rock musics biggest names.

As Nashville and country music trends shifted away from salt-of-the-earth working singer-songwriters , Bunzow packed up his guitars and music notebooks and brought himself back to Portland, Oregon where he continues to hone his sizable talents. Hes found old fans and new ones as he tirelessly tours Northwest nightclubs, concert halls, festival stages, casinos, wineries and resorts playing original cuts from his most recent CDs, including Counterfeit Salvation, Darkness, Alive at OConnors and Off the Shelf, and creating music that touches the heart of anybody whos ever raised a little hell on  a Saturday night, or felt the pangs of love gone bad.

Take a listen:

Both musically and lyrically, Bunzow has an impressive grasp of his craft and such a strong and unique voice, and his songs are defined both by their diversity and the distinct sense of unity running through them. Themes of disillusionment, new found hope, distrust and making a new start are more than common in folk music, and its a sign of Bunzows talents that he tackles these subjects respectfully and in a refreshing manner.on the whole Bunzow has made a stunningly passionate and refreshingly contemporary country album.
