Long Gone John / Jonny Vinal
A hard travellin', folk singin', blue feelin', fingerpickin', tall tale teller currently based in Portland Oregon. Inspired by aimless travels and the never-ending argument between the head and the heart; Long Gone John has found his voice in the humor of its troubles and recklessness of their beauty.
Once steeped heavily in the lush music scene of the Green Mountains; John was the creative force behind local favorite Tallgrass Getdown. Drawing from influences such as The Wood Brothers, The Devil Makes Three, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, The Band, Little Feat and many others, John wrote songs that were edgy, honest, soulful, and deep with a timeless element that somehow meshed seamlessly with carefully chosen covers and adaptations of traditional songs.
In 2015, he decided it was time to hit the road indefinitely. Trading rambunctious crowds at local dives, venues, and festivals for a fresh perspective on himself and his music. The long rambling prairies in the Midwest, the rocky mountains of the great divide, the deep borderlands of Arizona, and the unforgivingly beautiful pacific coast became his audience. After years of travelling, picking, contemplating, and working odd jobs all along the way hes landed in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Jonny Vinal plays a mix of folk, rock, reggae, gypsy punk and bluegrass with his own style of finger picking, lead and rhythm. His songs consist of story telling of fantasy and his own true story. His music keeps you engaged with many tempo changes and drawing lyrics. He pours his soul out and lets his voice and music take you away. Wether he is performing solo or with the band he is guaranteed to give it his all and leave the stage soaked in sweat and a shit eating grin.
