WHAT IS THE HARMONICA POCKET?
The Harmonica Pocket is all about intelligent, indie pop songs for people who like their music outside-the-box.
At the core of The Harmonica Pocket are the mature, swinging tunes of Keeth Monta Apgar (acoustic wah-wah guitar, harmonica, words) whose thick jazz chord progressions and unpredictable changes offer a refreshing twist on today's commercial pop music.
Both live and in the studio, The Harmonica Pocket is made up of a rotating caste of musicians including Lorne Watson (half drum kit / half congas & percussion), Jon Ryser (alto saxophone), Nala Walla (vocal harmony), as well as many other untraditional sounds. The Harmonica Pocket's 2005 release is a collaboration between 25 different musicians and a handful of visual artists.
A LILL BIT ABOUT "BIRDS FALLING FROM THE SKY"
"Birds Falling from the Sky" is an 18 track album by Puget Sound band The Harmonica Pocket. Released in August 2005, the record is an eclectic, unpredictable tally of genre-crossing tunes.
From the experimental opening soundscape "Last night i saw" into "Earth over air" a folk-reggae track spliced with voicemail excerpts; OR from the lo-fi record player blues on "Bag of never" to the Beatlesque epic pop song "The stars are all out" -- song after song after song The Harmonica Pocket consistently takes musical risks and colors outside the lines of what everyone else is doing.
