“Portage songsmith, musician, and performer Jeff Trathen had to travel more than a thousand miles to rediscover his musical mojo. A little more than two decades ago, Trathen, a fixture in the region music strata, was frustrated by the synth-heavy pop and rock that dominated the airwaves and live music venues. He credits a move to Houston in 1989 with getting him back on the musical track. “The music in the '80s left me a little disillusioned, there was a lot of electronic music, a lot of synthesizers, and not a lot of guitars,” he said. “When I went down to Texas, I discovered a lot of songwriters that got me back interested into songwriting and music. It just revived my spirit. In Houston, he found influence in southern and Americana songsmiths such as Guy Clark, Tom Russell and Robert Earl Keen. For more than a decade, he co-fronted the alt-country/bluegrass outfit Bluewing in the Lone Star state before returning to the Region in 2000.”
