ABOUT

I'm Huckleberry and my main instrument is my voice and I play twelve (and six) string rhythm guitars for accompaniment. I've been playing, singing and writing songs for over fifty years.

SONIC BLOOM, (sonic-bloom-band) will soon no longer be performing live as the keyboard player is moving away from Idaho. Therefore, I am looking to join another band or form a new one.

The covers that I play are generally from the 60s/70s soft rock (e.g., Moody Blues, Beatles, Creedence, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, etc.) My primary focus, however, is on originals.

Originals are widely varied in musical styles blending elements of soft rock, country rock, mellow orchestrations, bluegrass, jazz and a little bit of country. I am not bound by any "genre".

I released my first album< "Magic Meadow Music" on Aug 8, 2015 and is available for download on ITunes, Amazon and CDBaby or CDs from our website. I am currently working on album #2, "Free To Be".

My email is musicsonic-bloom-band.

I'm not looking to play in smoky bars but more into venues such as concerts, farmer's markets, special events, unique venues, charitable events, private parties, etc.

Album #1: Magic Meadow Music is an album about living in harmony with nature--MP3 download now available on iTunes, CDBaby and Amazon; CDs available by contacting me at musicsonic-bloom-band

Album #2: "Free To Be"-- an album with an outer space/time travel theme

Album #3: "Conspiracy Nuts"--a musical comedy

The five original songs, (P) 1980, that I have uploaded here are from my first album that I am currently revising. The binaural nature sounds that I recorded and mixed with the music are best listened to with headphones.
