Bleeding Harp is a trailblazing, rockin’ blues band fusing the deep history of the blues with modern influences of Rock, Jam, and Southern Rock to create a sound all their own. Whether they’re playing a blues standard or one of their many high-octane originals, the band puts its own unique sound and stamp on the blues while featuring an array of blazing soloists that will leave any audience entertained and wanting more. 

The band was founded in London in the early 1990’s by vocalist, harpist extraordinaire and stand-up comedian, Paul Vallis, a true transatlantic citizen of both the United Kingdom and the United States. Over its extended history the band has consisted of several incarnations, while always staying rooted in Vallis’ love for the blues and deep respect for the giants of the idiom. Vallis’ playing demonstrates his deep appreciation for the storied roots of the music, combined with his desire to break new ground and expand the boundaries for this distinct American-born and UK-brewed art form. Vallis relocated to Los Angeles in the late 1990’s and connected with Michigan native, guitarist Jeff “Big Red” Marshall, laying the early groundwork for the latest, all-star configuration of the band. Marshall is an accomplished guitarist and instructor who has toured the world with numerous artists. He also serves as the musical director, leader and primary songwriter for the group. In the years since Vallis and Marshall’s meeting, Bleeding Harp has been electrifying the Los Angeles blues circuit, including venues such as Harvelle’s, BB King’s, Arcadia Blues Club, Catalina Island Blues Festival, Ireland’s 32, Camarillo Fiesta and Howl at The Moon. In 2005 the band released their debut recording, Gotta Have. Now several years later, Bleeding Harp features its most explosive and talented lineup yet, full of veteran LA musicians with diverse geographic and musical backgrounds who have come together to form a line-up ready to take the blues festival circuit by storm. 

Other members of the group include guitarist and Toledo native, Jeff Kollman, whose storied career includes stints alongside UFO, Glenn Hughes and Micheal Schenker, in addition to a discography of solo albums and releases with his various groups, including Chad Smith’s Bombastic Meatbats (of Red Hot Chili Peppers fame), Cosmosquad and the Jeff Kollman Band, as well as numerous composition credits in film and television. Keyboardist and Boulder, Colorado native, Lao Tizer, is the founder and leader of the acclaimed world-jazz-fusion ensemble and the 2011 “Jazz Group of the Year” nominee that bears his last name, TIZER. Lao is also a former “Best New Jazz Artist” nominee whose credits include the Grammy-nominated groups Down To The Bone and Special EFX in addition to his 8 solo and group releases and performance credits around the globe. Bassist and Escanaba, Michigan native, Kevin Chown, grew up mere miles from “Big Red” unknowingly, before meeting Kollman in the early 1990’s and spending several years with their group collaboration, Edwin Dare. Chown’s long career includes credits alongside Chad Smith’s Bombastic Meatbats, Uncle Kracker and Tarja in addition to his countless credits in film and television composition and solo releases. Drummer and New York native Andy Sanesi brings a long list of credits as both a session player and as a member of groups including Nick Hexum Quintet, Julian Coryell Trio, Gryphon Labs and is a currently keeping time for beloved 80’s band Missing Persons. 

Together this new lineup has created a unique sound of blues based, rock inspired and soul influenced music combining covers from some of their favorite groups (The Allman Brothers, Robin Trower, Stevie Ray Vaughan) with their own originals. They released their debut music video for the single “Breakin’ Me Down” in 2013 and are currently putting the finishing touches on their anticipated second EP due out later this year. Look for Bleeding Harp on the road throughout the years to come…..~

This is a somewhat confusing album. Responsible for this is the band Bleeding Harp from Los Angeles. A band, led by singer and harmonica player Paul Valler and furthermore consisting of the guitarists Jeff “Big Red” Marshall and Jeff Kollman (ex-UFO), bassist Kevin Chown, druimmer Andy Sanesi and keyboard player Lao Tizer. 
The confusion arises because the first part of the album consists of hard-hitting blues rock with influences like Jimi Hendrix but also The Cult and Living Color. 

The band does all the credit in Breakin ‘Me Down in which Paul Valler makes his harmonica cry and scream in the best Magic Dick tradition. The unexpected melodic part in this song takes the speed somewhat from the song. Truth is a log grooving heavy blues rock song with a somewhat psychedelic sound. This brings the sound of The Cult to the surface. Here the piano interruption causes the pleasant groove to stagnate somewhat. After a simmering motorcycle has driven off, Live To Ride starts , a funky blues rock song with a high Living Color content in which flaming guitar work is central. 
Doug Pinnick, of King’s X, appears as a guest in the cover of the Allman Brothers Band songWhipping Post . The version of Bleeding Harp is heavier and funkier with the ripping harmonica, which competes with the two hard blues guitars and remains proud. After this the band brings a completely different sound. The heavy sound of the previous tracks is parked to make room for more soulful blues in the loom swinging I Can not in which the sultry harmonica comes into its own. Again, the band could not resist letting melodic elements mix through the song. Something You Never Had is such a loom funky blues song with beautiful floating twingitars. This song is in the style of Delbert McClinton. This Delbert McClinton once covered the Temptations classic I Can not Get Next To You(also beautifully done by The Jess Roden Band). Bleeding Harp also ventures to this classic. Their lazy version does not really want to run and sounds a bit rough. 

I do not know if Bleeding Heart wanted to demonstrate with these seven songs that they can handle both solid blues rock and lous soulful rhythm & blues. For me, the first (hard) part sounds most convincing and I hope they continue on this foot…..by…Peter Marinus…..~
