Portland, Oregon native John Bunzow has been called one of the finest writers and roots-musicians on the current music scene. Producer Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam, Meat Puppets, Steve Forbert) said he is "... without doubt the best artist I've heard in recent times." Chicago Tribune columnist Jack Hurst cites Bunzow with mixing "the rootsy with the revolutionary."
Bunzow's new CD, Darkness and Light, on Sideburn Records, was recorded live in a friend's basement studio. "I was itching to get back to my roots music," Bunzow says, "That's the vibe I wanted - all one-take vocal and guitar parts - just as they came down live. Just like we do out in the clubs."
John started playing professionally while attending the University of Oregon at Eugene, and following college; he spent 15 years playing clubs throughout the northwest United States. In the process, his fusion of roots rock and blues garnered an extensive fan following.The end result is that Bunzow's eclectic music is a melting pot of influences ranging from Dylan to Elvis Costello to Merle Haggard and Tom Waits.
