Turnspit is my new favorite rock band. They’re a high-energy, tight ensemble that can turn on a dime, sing meaningful lyrics, and even have the good taste to add harmonica on a tune when it calls for it! I’m on their new single “Lamplighters.”
Using the well-loved sound of the pocket-sized instrument, he warps, reshapes, layers and loops live on stage to create something new yet familiar. His musical approach celebrates the harmonica's undeniable ability to connect with the hearts of an audience and extends the range of a solo performance to the orchestral. Rhythmic figures and drones from the at-times-otherworldly bass harmonica combine with its more common cousins, the diatonic harmonica (often called "blues harps") to create a live music experience informed by jazz, world music, modern classical and minimalism.
