Synopsis

Album Description
Part harmonica wizard and part rhythmic explorer, Harper is a fiery artist who blurs the lines between rock, folk and blues. His use of the didgeridoo, an indigenous wind instrument of his native Australia, adds a world music element that, along with his compelling original songwriting and sublime vocals, gives Harper a distinctive sound entirely his own. The ten originals on Down To The Rhythm exhibit the virtuoso performances, distinctive instrumentation, instantly memorable songs, and deeply soulful groove that account for his rapidly growing popularity

"I'm not a music reviewer, so this is going to come off simplistic, but what the heck.

Harper opened for The Radiators at Fitzgeralds Roadhouse near Chicago a year ago. Both bands were great, but Harper was new and refreshing--and just plain fun.

We bought the CD the next day and have been enjoying it since. Harper's music and lyrics make you smile, tap your feet, and drum the table, steering wheel, or whatever is within reach when it's playing.

We would gladly pay to this band again and we anxiously await the next disc.
