“There are very few blues artists like Goluban and he’s doing something new that lots of blues fans are going to want to check out.” – American Blues Scene

Croatian blues aficionado and harmonica player Tomislav Goluban returned to Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee to record his twelfth studio album, ‘Express Connection.’

He teamed with dynamic co-producer Jeff Jensen (Tennessee Redemption), who is also guitarist for the session, to infuse the project with creative intensity.

‘Express Connection’ offers nine new blues originals and a cover of Lou Reed’s “Pale Blue Eyes.” Kelly Zirbes (Kelly’s Lot) adds heartfelt lead and backing vocals on six tracks.

Traditional blues disciple from Eastern Europe, Thomas Goluban, aka Little Pigeon, returns with his 12th album, ‘Express Connection,’ continuing his mission to prove that music is truly an international language and as the title suggests is a vehicle to connect all people.

The 10 tracks, 9 original and 1 cover, may be  considered the sequel to his previous album, ‘Memphis Light,’ as he once again assembled a crew of like minded souls to record at Ardent studios in Memphis TN.

Although the two recording sessions took place a year apart, the continuity of sound and substance remains, due to the expert work of Mike Wilson at Ardent  and Jeff Bakos at the famed Bakos Amp Works in Atlanta.

‘Express Connection’ is another fine example of how Tomislav Goluban plays and sings with a strong passion and a flash of humor in the music he loves. – Rick J Bowen
