Fernando - True Instigator (2009)

If you are in the mood for a couple barn burning rockers, you should check out Portland local, Fernando. "True Instigator" and "Word from the Inside", off his new album True Instigator, are hard charging roots rock. And they're free on his website! The rest of the album is a bit mellower, but still mostly pulls from the alt. country, roots, and Americana genres. Of the more reflective and beautiful ballads, I like "It's A Shame" and "Remember Me" the best.
