The geneology and musical roots of Firefall run deep in the fertile soil of American Folk/Rock music. Defying industry labels, they melded country, folk, easy listening and rock ‘n’ roll, creating a sound uniquely their own, helping to define a generation and forever changing the landscape of contemporary music. One of the few surviving bands of their genre, Firefall has remained true to the founding vision throughout the band’s 30 year history.

Firefall saturated the air waves with a string of Top 20 hits, earning two platinum and three gold records (Including “You Are The Woman,” “Strange Way” and “Just Remember I Love You”) for their efforts. Their dynamic live performances gained them a huge and loyal fan base - one that continues to grow even now. In their current live shows, the band both nutures and expands on their distinctive melodic sound. Their much loved hits are faithfully recreated with a freshness rare in live performances of such classics. With their newer material, they continue to demonstrate the diversity of the band’s musical excellence. In keeping with the times, the shows often include acoustic “mini sets” and extended jams, which speak directly to their ever growing new generation of fans.

Opener: Goran

Goran is a singer/songwriter originally from Munster, Indiana. He attended the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where he and his brother formed an alternative rock band called The Gufs. The Gufs released three independent cd’s and developed a large following in Milwaukee and the surrounding midwest in the early 90’s. In 1996, the band signed with Atlantic Records and released their self titled major label debut. In 1999, Goran signed a publishing deal with EMI that same year and The Gufs released Holiday From You which was produced by Arnold Lanni, Our Lady Peace. Goran released a solo album in 2004 called Any Day Now, and The Gufs released their final cd in 2006 called A Different Sea on Red Sub Records. After a a handful of years away from music and songwriting, Goran moved his family to Franklin,TN looking for a better life. He lives there now with his wife and two children as he continues writing songs for Dan Hodges Music Publishing. He has written songs with songwriters Dan Wilson, Someone Like You by Adele; Jason Duke, Dibs by Kelsea Ballerini; Joe Doyle, Back In This Cigarette by Jason Aldean amongst others while settling down outside of Nashville.

In January of 2019, Goran released Under a Nashville Sky on Red Sub Records. UaNS is Goran’s first full length release since 2004’s Any Day Now and was co-written and recorded In Nashville over the last three years. What started out as songs meant to be pitched to today’s country pop market, soon turned into a body of work too irresistible to be left on a shelf never to be heard. With Goran’s soaring melodies and clever lyrical twists and turns, UaNS proves to be a sweetly powerful listen from the opening chord of the hopeful Call It Quits to the last sustain of the emotionally pleading Me Without You. These 11 songs are one part pop and one part rock with a little hint of country. These are stories about love, loss and hope; second and missed chances, and when all mixed together create a unique melodic sound that will be sure to leave you satisfied and keep you wanting more.
