    Singer-Songwriter

    Fernando Viciconte-the 2016 Oregon Music Hall of Famer with twenty years of local and national acclaim under his belt-crawls from the wreckage of the recent past unbowed, bruised but unbroken. He has survived major surgery for a throat condition and thus what could have been existential silence for 'that voice'. It's a voice that caused countless rags like Billboard, Magnet, Paste, The Oregonian, No Depression (and on and on) plus fellow musicians like Peter Buck from REM, Don Dixon, and Steve Wynn to rave wildly about the feeling it evokes when he's

    singing his songs of dark despair and faint hope. These rock n roll laments, in both Spanish and English have captured the imaginations of his hometown for seven records, countless compilations, and memorable shows. Now Fernando-and 'that voice' -has emerged stronger than ever with a full-length LP entitled "Leave the Radio On", produced with Luther Russell (Fever the Ghost, Richmond Fontaine) & Mike Coykendall (M.Ward, She and Him) and led off by his first 45 release ever, "The Dogs b/w "Donna (The Pride Of Topeka)' as well as several major upcoming tours. The new album features a virtual who's who of Portland's finest musicians, including Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of REM and members of M.Ward, Elliott Smith, Richmond Fontaine and The Delines. This is a new chapter in Viciconte's ever-evolving musical trajectory, a career marked by creative integrity and an almost painful honesty which attracts fans from high and low that still believe in the redemptive power of rock and roll. And 'that voice'.

    Freddy Trujillo is a singer/songwriter/bassist who hails from Simi Valley, CA. He grew up in a highly musical family. Fred Sr. sang and played guitar in various groups, including The Beethovens, an all-chicano beat combo who gigged all over the southland during the great garage-rock boom of the mid-1960's. Sister A'me Loraine scored two top ten dance hits in the early 90's. Freddy himself played with Pat Smear (Nirvana, Germs) and many other local L.A. acts during the explosion of punk/alternative music that hit L.A. in the '80's/'90's. Freddy soon re-located to Portland, Oregon and released his acclaimed debut solo record Hawks & Highways, which dealt with the intertwining of Native American and Chicano experiences in rock & roll form. He has since been a sought-after player on the ever-burgeoning Portland scene, having formed the well-respected (yet short-lived) Chicano-rock ensemble Caguama and, most recently, joined both Richmond Fontaine and Fernando. On the heels of all this comes Freddy's newest offering Amexica, released under the moniker Trujillo. Amexica is nothing less than the sum-total of all dues paid: having played every possible type of venue, crafted every type of song, and immersed himself in the study of his Mexican heritage. Produced by Luther Russell, Amexica is a kaleidascopic romp through Freddy's own colorful history, with nods to musical heros such as Freddy Fender, Flaco Jimenez and Doug Sahm, as well as odes to fallen friends, personal relationships and his own beloved children. In fact, family is a major theme of Amexica, with guests on the record including his father, sister and his nephew Casper Indrizzo, himself the front-man of up-and-coming psych-rockers Fever The Ghost. Amexica is a sonic journey to "Aztlan", a new yardstick for psychedelic Chicano-rock.Amexica is--in Freddy's words--The New Brown Soul.
