Harpdog Brown Band

Label: indie
since circa 1990
Harpdog Brown is a gifted singer and imaginative harmonica player of note that has been in Canada’s Blues scene since 1982. Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta he crossed tens of thousands of miles playing club dates and festivals in Canada, North Western United States and Germany.
Over the years Harpdog has issued 6 cd’s to critical acclaim. In 1995 his “Home is Where The Harp Is” won the coveted Muddy Award for the best NW Blues Release of the year, from the Cascade Blues Association in Portland. As well that year it was nominated for a Juno for the best Blues Release in Canada. Teamed up with Graham Guest on piano, his cd “Naturally” was voted #1 Canadian Blues Album of 2010 by The Blind Lemon Survey.
Harpdog resides in Vancouver, BC where he leads his own trio and quartet of hot local players churning out blues on the jazzy mellower side. He also leads The Harpdog Brown Band which is a gutsy traditional Chicago blues band with John R Hunter (drums), Jordan Edmonds (guitar) and George Fenn (bass). In 2014 they released "What It Is" consisting mainly new originals and a few classic covers you don't get from your average blues band. As Holger Peterson says on the jacket, “Harpdog’s best work yet”. Check it out. See what you think.

"Harpdog is a great blues man. This set captures the way he puts his individual stamp on everything he does. He is in total command onstage – and enjoying every minute. "

“They play the blues naturally and without gimmicks or pretension, and when you combine that with their talent, it places them at the top of their trade…You won’t find a better blues band in Canada.”
