With his sixth studio album, Blow Junkie, Tomislav is back to his roots. The CD features good old blues-rock, stripped to four instruments (harmonica, guitar, bass and drums) just to make the point that even this raw and simple sound could be easily enjoyed. Harp plays the leading role and the old blues mantra “less is more” is well established here. For the first time, Goluban here appears as an author of songs in English. A link, but also a constant value in his career, is his harp, which becomes more and more powerful, clear, grown and definitely original.
”Croatia’s Tomislav Goluban is a true student of traditional American blues and rock. He deserves and “A” for Blow Junkie. It’s upbeat, clever and funny. It will put a smile on your face and tap in your toes. Creative take on “Messin’ with the Kid.” Blow Junkie is a nonstop party. I keep wondering when Tomi will come up for air!“
Tim Parsons, Blues Festival Guide 2014
This Croatian blues musician, composer, harmonica player and a singer is quite unique by his expression. With his passion, sense of humor and catchy appearance, he can really afford your audience an interesting and original show.
Tomislav has been playing his harp since 1997, inspired by old school masters like Sonny Terry, Slim Harpo, Paul Butterfield, Gary Primich, Kim Wilson or Joe Filisko just to name a few whom he still admires today.
