Album Notes
There's a new harmonica slinger in town...

This formerly British-based, harmonica lead Blues outfit cut their teeth playing a number of clubs in the London area, where for 10 years, they were the mainstay of the British Blues scene. They also toured Germany and the Czech Republic, where they played the Golem Blues Festival with headliner BB King.

Paul Vallis, lead vocals and harmonica, skillfully threads together the styles of his own mentors, Junior Wells and Sugar Blue with a modern blues vibe of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Buddy Guy. Paul has appeared with Beverly Skeets, Mica Paris and the legendary Slim Gaylard. Vallis brings a new and unique interpretation of Blues harmonica to the fore and by adding soulful vocals, takes bleedingHARP to another level altogether.

Vallis has since relocated to the States and pulled together a new line-up featuring guitarist Jeff Marshall, world class drummer Bobby Jarzombek and former Lucinda Williams bass player James Kirk. They are currently gigging in and around the Southland. According to "Southland Blues" Magazine, "Vallis burns up the stage". Their new CD , "Gotta Have" was released in May 2oo4.

selten so gut gespielte Hap gehört
Hallo aus Deutschland -
Was für ein Sound und perfekt gespielte Blues-Harp.

Arne Hedberg

What can i say that isnt already said? Its a unbelievable record this harmonicaplayer and his band give us.


awesome harp , awesome guitar, tight drumming -great talent.
Awesome harp playin', great technique, and the guitar work awesome as well, throw in a very talented drummer and bass player -(and I do mean "very talented") and this c.d. packs a nice kick -the vocals are o.k. they kinda' remind me..... of a zz top/Huey Lewis sound. Lyrics are a weak point though, they're not very deep, or imaginative. if these boys got themselves a good lyricist it would be hard not to let the c.d. live in the stereo


Great harp playing and a good groove
Sometimes it just seems that it's hard to be impressed by a new band nowdays, but Bleeding Harp's definately got what it takes to make musicians like us smile and inevitably want to steal some licks. Good job!

Robert Fox

rocking good
Love the soulful vibe. Your screaming harp makes the hair on the back of my neck rise! Awesome.


Filled with contemporary hues and rollicking blues
Vallis' blues harp... serves as the band's centerpiece and works out as its strongest feature. His searing melodies and sustained phrases serve as a thread that weaves itself through the program...The album's lone instrumental number, "Creeper Returns," digs in solidly and lifts you up by your shirt collar. Vallis and Marshall fog the windows with the steam that escapes from their instruments. Together, the band members give their audience a complete program that's filled with contemporary hues and rollicking blues.

A true coming of age recording-wise! This CD burns with real blues and feeling, dripping sweet guitar licks and red-hot harmonica all over some tasty tracks. I'm not normally one for instrumentals, but check out Vallis' blistering harmonica on Creeper Returns! There's also 3 tracks from the album by a previous incarnation of the group from the UK, updated and sounding fine.
I remember them from the 12 Bar Club in London - if you get a chance, check out their storming live show!
