Blue Heart Records signs Tomislav Goluban
By: Blue Heart Records
Goluban returned to Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee, where he recorded Memphis Light (2020), to record his twelfth studio album, Express Connection. An impassioned performer, Goluban teamed with dynamic co-producer Jeff Jensen (Tennessee Redemption), who is also the 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 adds heartfelt lead and backing vocals on six tracks. The album is slated for global release on April 16, 2021.
"Having worked as Tomislav's publicist and radio promoter on his previous two albums, I'm delighted we could add him to our label to take advantage of all the resources we have to offer," says Betsie Brown. "He's not only a fine musician, but also dedicated to the blues, working with fellow Croatians to spread the word."
According to Goluban, "I've been in the record business for 15 years and that time flew by like a hurricane. In the meantime a lot of things changed, especially for independent artists, and it will be beneficial to have the support of an international label. I appreciate the expertise of Blue Heart Records and am honored and thrilled about this partnership."
