Hey fellow blues musicians - My first / main instrument is harmonica, specifically blues harmonica in the cross key, with some distortion to get a bit of a dirty sound. My influences are: James Cotton, Junior Wells, Magic Dick (J.Geils Band), Lester Butler (Red Devils), and Alan Wilson/Bob Hite in Canned Heat. I have samples of my playing I can send your way. Ideally I'd like to be in one live band, but I'm also open to session work in the studio. In addition to wanting to join a band as a blues harp player, I'm also a singer-songwriter looking to put together a blues-infused alt-roots-rock band for recording & performing/touring.
