Great Blues Harp from Croatia (USA)

Me Myself Music and Mysteries - Ed Karn, May 16, 2015 (USA)

The other day when I was reviewing the Roots Music Reports latest Blues Chart I was intrigued by the album at number 49 Blow Junkie from Tomislav Goluban. First, I was taken aback by the album seemingly drug referenced title. But then I looked more closely at the album cover I saw the harmonica and then I understood! And then there was the artist’s name Tomislav sounds a little Eastern European to me. So I made a quick trip to Spotify, downloaded the album onto the iPhone and gave it a listen on a run to do some errands yesterday morning! From the opening songs “Harp’ Rockin'” and “Blow Junkie Boogie” this album's good time feel had me...

Bottom Line: Blow Junkie is a terrific blues album from a great young blues artist from Croatia Tomislav Goluban, crisp blues harp with nice vocals and a good supporting cast! So Check It Out! As for me, I have five other Tomislav Goluban albums to check out!

"Gambler's Blues" as a new album announcement!

"Gambler's Blues" as a new album announcement!
After the "Med Bregi" album, a harp player Tomislav Goluban moves on! This time, however, in somewhat different blues style. With this new release, which is almost out, Tomislav is back to his roots. Good old blues-rock, stripped to three instruments (guitar, bass and drums) to make the point that even this raw and simple sound can be easily enjoyed. On the album titled "Blow Junkie" harp plays the leading role and the old blues mantra "less is more" is well established here. Before the album is out, introductory single leads into the story of Blow Junkie. The single is called "Gambler's Blues" and the music and lyrics are by Tomislav Goluban.
"Aren't we all gamblers at one point of our lives? We win, we lose, but the risk is the one which supplies thrill and suspence. As we walk along the edge we wonder if we are going to catch the beautiful view or just a stumble off the cliff. We never know, and that's the beauty of it, isn't it? I had J.J. Cale in my mind followed by Charlie Watts on drums." Says Tomislav of his new single.

6th studio album cooming soon!
