John will perform songs from "Rodeo" with local musicians Jeff Reid (rhythm guitar), Roger Cook (bass) and Jim Ellis (piano). If you are not familiar with the format, here is the description from WHQR's website: Soup to Nuts on-air host George Scheibner will interview the performers during breaks in the show. You'll hear the music and find out about the artists who create it, while the performance is recorded live for future broadcast on WHQR. The atmosphere is charged with excitement, and the ambience is simply unmatched -- there's no other venue like it in the Port City.
If you would like to join the party celebrating the release of "Rodeo," please contact me, as space is limited. We'll play the CD, share some snacks, toast some fine friends and musicians, then perform songs from the record. Fun!
John will be singing originals and surprising covers from the likes of Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon and Tom Waits. There is an open wine tasting with real glasses and some pretty sexy craft beer.
John will be playing with End of the Line trio, which includes mandolin player Sean Gould and dobro/banjo player Perry Hewlett.
Enjoy the open wine tasting or grab a craft beer and listen to John play originals and off-the-beaten-path covers (Tom Waits, anyone?).
Songwriting, guitar, mandolin, keyboards, bass
“Not only does John Fonvielle sing well (in a Drambuie kind of voice, smooth and potent), and play guitar, bass, mandolin, piano and organ, he can flat write a song. Working in the Americana singer-songwriter tradition, he crafts lyrics at once familiar and enigmatic, about love and heartbreak; about leaving town and about coming home; about finding oneself and finding 'a soft place to land.' You can hear some influences, but only the best kind: Tom Waits, Gram Parsons, Joni Mitchell, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, even the late great Jesse Winchester.”
