"WESU Middletown"

Though I personally try fairly hard to cultivate a variety of genre, expression, and approach to music on WWL, I do have my biases. It seems as if most people generally shy away from certain genres, or, at least, remain obstinately loyal to maybe 40 or so artists.

Harry does not seem to have this problem. As both a listener and a creator of music, Harry's interests are both broad and deep. He is able to engage in long form Indian music, American blues, psychedelic music, etc. etc. Rattling off different musics probably doesn't paint a very vivid picture of what Harry does, but I think you'll be able to hear the strains of many influences and thoughts in today's Audio Goodie. His is a good eclecticism - a engagement with multiple approaches out of true artistic curiosity, not because of posturing or politically correct thinking. Coupled with a sort of woodland, mossy sensibility and an acrobatic singing voice, as I think you'll agree, Harry's music remains a unique form with many a familiar aural foothold and some references that aren't so readily apparent. In short, he makes music that is interesting - both to himself and to listeners. Ben Seretan WESU - Wild Wild Live radio show Nov 2009

Harry began playing guitar at the age of six. He was exposed to the blues before he reached his teens, and soon developed a love for the music. He honed his chops at local blues jams, playing with the older guys and coming into his own as a guitarist. In his early teens, he was invited to sit in with the James Montgomery Blues Band. For the next few years he made guest appearances with the band all over New England. With James, he played with Steven Tyler at a benefit concert in Boston, shared the stage with guitarist Johnny A and blues harmonica legend James Cotton, and opened for B.B. King and Johnny Winter. During this time he also befriended KD Bell, a New England blues singer who featured Harry on many shows. Between 2004 and 2006, Harry played and recorded with his rock band Bad Spectrum. When he was involved with the band, Harry expanded his influences to include British and Irish folk, jazz, country, psychedelic rock and various folk and classical forms from all over the world. Now, in addition to guitar and singing, Harry is also proficient on sitar, fiddle, mandolin, doumbek, saz, bowed psaltery, and is a student of Carnatic singing. Grounded in tradition but always seeking new sounds, Harry's eclecticism exceeds the bounds of genre, creating above all a music of feeling.
