“One Man’s Blues, a slow burner, has Harper playing some beautiful slide guitar……”Let’s See Where This Love’s Gonna Go” is a strong rocker and “Nothing Difficult Is Ever Easy”, a rocking 12 bar with gritty slide & interesting spoken input from a supposed wife/girlfriend, is an example of his unique writing style. - Merv Osborne/Blues Matters (UK)"
Rich's tours of 2009 will include Taiwan & Thailand (February) & Norway & Denmark (May-June). More tour announcements coming soon! Details for all tours are available at the bands website http://www.richharper.com
"The new album's (Musician Standard Time) been on constant repeat in my CD-player since I received it…The brilliant songs. Each one is perfectly crafted, and has it's own story to tell…The musicianship and production are really "in your face" and so full of life…It is really great to hear an album where the songs, the performance, really creates a "picture" for the listener - Peter Holmstedt (Entertainment Network Scandinavia)"
