On Friday, April 29th 2016, Award Winning Artist & Composer Paul Trubachik will host Portland music fans to a “Homecoming Vinyl Release Party” at the White Eagle Saloon for Los Angeles based guitarist, songwriter, and recording artist FERGHEART to celebrate the release of a debut 7” vinyl record and his first concert in Portland in over 10 years.
The Oregon countryside and his dad’s old Yamaha guitar have morphed into the twenty-four-seven bustle of Los Angeles and a well-loved 1956 Gibson L-50. The product of songwriter Craig D. Ferguson, FERGHEART presents a sound of Modern Folk and Rhythm & Blues influenced by deep roots in jazz, bluegrass, soul, country and early rock n’ roll music. His debut 7″ vinyl release and it’s title track “My Retro Weekend” placed in the Top 20 in 2015 The Great American Song Contest, and received honorable mention in the 2015 West Coast Songwriter’s Group contest.
Performing songs from his 2013 debut record “All Animals Are Sad After Sex”, Paul Trubachik’s band will feature acclaimed Portland jazz pianist Dan Gaynor, and drummer Dave Coniglio from 1939 Ensemble. Paul’s work has been featured in film, web media, fundraisers, and national radio and television campaigns. His work in advertising has been continually recognized with back-to-back Telly awards for best music and use of music in advertising. Paul’s film work includes the feature documentary, Puppet, which has screened all over the country, broadcast nationwide, and was selected to screen at the Brooklyn Academy of Music Cinematek. Paul has provided music for Obama For America 08/12, Human Rights First, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, The Ad Council, and numerous progressive causes around the country.
