Just moved from Austin Texas to Vermont.I am 36 & have been playing a harp for 30+yrs.I have plenty of time to contribute.I can sing,play nearly every genre.I have a very interactive stage presence, really enjoy playing the harp,dirty,throaty blues that makes people dance, that's what music is all about to me.Experiences,trials and tribulations and learning.Music is a regular part of my life,unfortunetly not as much as since moving from Texas.I'm dedicated,easy going,accepting,non-judgemental & "left the ego at the door" a long time ago. Looking to connect with a working band wanting a Harp w/"chops"!Also work Per Diem(fill in),studio work, full time/part time band and looking for others to play with.Recently had the pleasure of playing out of Austin Texas but have played all over with many musicians.Dallas to San Antonio to Houston to hustling 6th,festivals in Killeen,Tx to Tenn,Chicago.I really love music and am looking for the chance to play.I do not fit any one "genre" but many,love to write & sing atop playing.So lets play!ianrhein at !

Weeping Blues-No Amp.Harp.Improv.Ian.Rhein.
Weeping Blues-No Amp.Harp.Improv.Ian.Rhein.Some harp! So I set up my laptop in the bathroom for that "echo" effect. Just a quick, spasmatic improv. There was slight intent to try to make parts sound like a "weeping harmonica". Primarily due to not wanting to cry myself over the crappy weather and the absolute "blah" of being totally bored! Synopsis...a really short, harp solo recorded while sitting in front of the laptop in the bathroom on a rainy day!
