Tomislav "Little Pigeon" Goluban, Croatian blues musician, composer, harmonica player and singer, is unique by his expression. With his passion, sense of humor and catchy appearance, he can really provide the audience with an interesting and original show. His surname “Golub” translates to “Pigeon” in English, providing the inspiration for his stage name. His tenth studio album, "Chicago Rambler", was recorded in Chicago's "Joy Ride Studios", live across two afternoons in January of 2018. A calm and collected figure, Goluban didn't have to struggle to connect with the American musicians. His personal musical sound is a perfect fit for electric Chicago blues, and it's this combination that works so well! With many elements of classical blues, 12 tracks written by Tomislav Goluban were recorded during a session. The material is concisely performed, spontaneously directed and filled with the Chicago blues atmosphere. A lot is hidden and can be revealed with repeated listens. This is a great combination of everything music is and should be: limitless, creative, brave and unique.
''Locked Heart'' was created under influence of Jimmy Reed and Slim Harpo, a timeless theme of sorrow and heartbreak. Hopelessness, and even forgiveness, the typical blues form, confirms that blues musicians have soft hearts even though they might not seem that way at first.
Locked heart You locked up my heart, and threw the key away Now I'm sad & blue, because you've gone away I saw you leaving down the street, I knew our game was complete Didn't do anything, til my heart skipped a beat Took my last bottle of wine, your way to say goodbye Now I don't have nothing, to make it through the night I see you every day, in my world of pain Didn't know I'd feel so low, don't want to feel this way again I can't sleep at night, stars in the sky, shining bright Moon behind the mountain, hope the dawn will bring some lights Please don't be so cruel, really don't know what to do If you ever come back babe, I'll be waitin' all night & day You locked up my heart, and threw the key away Now I'm sad & blue, because you've gone away
