This high energy band blends a fusion of Country and Rock with a little Red Dirt sound thrown in to make up their own unique brand of music with original recordings and remixes of some old favorites.

Fernando Viciconte, the Portland, Oregon troubadour, has twenty years of local and national acclaim under his belt. His voice has caused countless publications (Billboard, Magnet, Paste, The Oregonian, No Depression, etc) and fellow musicians (Peter Buck, Don Dixon, Steve Wynn) to rave about the feeling it evokes when Fernando sings his songs of dark despair and faint hope.
