Offbeat Review (New Orleans)
01 January 2013— by Brett Milano

There’s always been a kinship between New Orleans and Austin, Texas—Cyril Neville, Marcia Ball, the Iguanas and Theresa Andersson are among the musicians who’ve lived in both cities. So it makes sense that Austin songwriter/guitarist Bodine would team up with a pair of Louisiana standbys, subdudes members John Magnie and Steve Amedee, on his second solo CD after a stint with the band Delta Roux.

Bodine sounds like a man who’s done some hard travelin’, but hasn’t given into world-weariness just yet. The opening title track is a close cousin to John Hiatt’s “Memphis in the Meantime,” the kind of open road song that makes you eager to hit the ignition. “Can’t Get Love Right” is less about the singer’s romantic screw-ups than his willingness to give it another shot. “Now I See” is about feeling the spirit of a lost friend, a topic he pulls off without overdoing the sentiment (and the gospel-esque chorus doesn’t hurt). The instrumental “Graceful Moves” has a late-night cantina feel and allows Magnie to play some conjuncto accordion.

The subdudes’ instrumental contributions generally take a backseat to Bodine’s slide guitar, which is most obviously influenced by Sonny Landreth—his tone is a dead ringer on “Can’t Get Love Right.” Amedee plays the full drum kit instead of his usual tambourine, but keeps his parts characteristically spare; Magnie’s piano bits are also nicely understated. But the two ‘dudes leave a mark on the vocal harmonies. They always appreciated a slow-burning tune with a rousing chorus, and they get some good ones here.


“Formerly a member of Delta Roux, Austin singer and slide guitarist Harry Bodine gloriously displays his terrific grasp of roots styles on the self released .................................................................................................................................Blues Revue

“Bodine is an original, who first draws on the best of his myriad of musical influences and then stamps his own individual style on the songs" ………………………………......................................................................................Blues Matters

“What Bodine seems to understand so many others miss; that often less is more. ……………....Rick Galusha - Blueswax

Think John Hiatt with Sonny Landreth on slide.................................................................................................MAZZ MUSIKAS


“Bodine, is an exciting guitarist because he relies not on volume but on talent, imagination and excellent songs. Adept at playing slide on resonator and other guitars as well as picking solid body and hollow body guitars, Bodine always shows what’s possible in the blues when the songs, not the volume, actually rule” ………….San Antonio Express-News Jim Beal

Damn, another Diamond in da rough...Thank you for the product and I will get with ya soon to do a interview and showcase you on KVNF. What a Groove Blood! Damn, let me tell ya who I hear...Tom Waits, Chris Rea, Sonny Landreth...I hear Harry Bodine...Yep, you be what I call Bad Ass! I am so glad your on this Groove Train. ……………………………….............................................................................................................KNVF Radio..Colorado/Jabeaux

He has opened shows for The Subdudes, The Radiators, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Delbert McClinton and Aaron Neville. Harry was also a featured artist at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival.

Harry’s song “Drivin Up Thru Memphis” was included on the CD sampler “A Taste Of Triple A”. Also featured on this sampler were songs by Ray Lamontagne, Marc Broussard, Meiko and Dave Stewart.

Harry spent five years as primary songwriter and guitarist for the Austin based band Delta Roux. The band released two CD’s on the German label “Taxim Records”.

Two of Harry'’s compositions Peace Tree Blues and Dirty Shoes can be heard in the movie “"Joyride”" , which is currently being featured in Film Festivals across the USA.

Harry's interest in playing music started after he left high school from his hometown in Central New York State. He started playing bass guitar the same time his older brother Howard was learning to play the six string. Howard taught Harry the Blind Lemon Jefferson song “Easy Rider Blues”, he then was hooked on the blues sound and switched from bass to guitar.



His passion for slide guitar was inspired by Duane Allman's work on the Allman Brothers' “Fillmore East” and the Derek and the Dominos' Layla album. Muddy Waters, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Ry Cooder, John Mooney, Jimmy Page, Johnny Winter, John Hammond and Mick Taylor also have had a big influence on his guitar work.

Harry’'s favorite songwriters are: Jagger/Richards, Lennon /McCartney, John Hiatt, Gregg Allman, Willie Dixon, George Harrison, Robbie Robertson, Bob Dylan and many more.
