Burnside Album Details
Fernando, Leave The Radio On
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. Three years in the making, Leave The Radio On features a virtual who's who of Portland's finest musicians, including Buck and Scott McCaughey as well as members of M.Ward, Elliott Smith, Richmond Fontaine and The Delines. This is a new chapter in Viciconte's ever-evolving musical trajectory, a career marked by creative integrity and an almost painful honesty which attracts fans from high and low that still believe in the redemptive power of rock and roll.
