New Blues approach. I melt blues influences with jazz, rock, funk, electronic sounds. The mood prevails accompanied with powerful harmonica work.

Biography

David Herzhaft is known as one of today's best harmonica player. The repertoire is mostly based on compositions and a few tunes from others greatly rearranged. He's had experience in jazz, country, traditionnal musics which helps him to create a blues stew of his own.

Lyrics

Darkness

Written By: David Herzhaft

DARKNESS IS MY HOME (David Herzhaft)

I been down I been trouble ever since you been gone * 2
I’m quite alright now, darkness is my home

You lied and you cheated came back late at home
You worked too much, came back late at home
I feel safe now, darkness is my home

I heard so many lies, and I gave you a second chance
I heard it so many times and I gave you a second chance
But I’m quite alright now, darkness is my home

Solo

Don’t you ring my phone, don’t touch my backdoor * 2
I’m quite alright now I won’t see you anymore

You know darkness, darkness is my home * 2
I’m quite alright now I won’t see you anymore

No Limits

NO LIMITS (David HERZHAFT)

I went down to the station
Took the first train to the deep South
I went down to the station
Took the first train to the sun

To meet my new love * 6

I left all I got behind me
I left the one I loved and cherished
Tell’em to keep everything I own and possess
And I’m goin’ down South

To meet my new love * 6

I gonna lock her in a dark room
Forget my past, forget my doom
Feel her breathe, feel her heat
It’s a new day with no limits

To feel my new love ...

Wish Me Good Luck

Written By: David Herzhaft

Eddie wish me good luck, I’m goin’ to Chicago
Better wish me good luck, I’m goin’ to Chicago
Got up on this train to find my new home

Got my axe and a few bucks, yeah I’m bound to go
Eddie wish me good luck, I’m goin’ to Chicago
When that train stops, I’d be off and gone

Hm hi yeah ah ah * 2

Conductor please conductor let me ride your train
Conductor hey conductor can a poor boy ride your train
I just left the sun now I can see the rain

When you hear that whistle blow the wind chills me to the bones
This old South is gone, And I’m just reborn

I’m a new man I’m just reborn

Hm hi yeah ah ah ....

(I ‘m goin get up on this train and ride to Chicago)
