I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer Breakout at BreakOut West

The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer Breakout at BreakOut West
Vancouver’s edgy blues duo The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer have ended the summer season on a high note with their participation in The BreakOut West Festival held in Regina last weekend with a nomination for Blues Recording of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards and several showcase performances.
Though the award went to another popular BC blues artist, David Gogo, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer's high-energy and original brand of blues caused quite a buzz amongst attendees at the festival.

“I’ve never seen a band command such energy from an audience so early in their career.  The energy coming from the stage was undeniable…it was brilliant”
-Liam Killeen, Coalition Music

"I got a very pleasant surprise when I caught The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer. I was blown away by their dynamic & crowd pleasing set. I'm certainly keeping my eyes on these guys & if I'm not mistaken, they are going places"
-Yvonne Matsell, Co-founder NXNE Music Festival

In addition to their raucous performances, industry panels, gaining new fans and general schmoozing at The BreakOut West Festival, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer also signed a deal with Canada's leading agency Paquin Entertainment. Paquin Entertainment's expertise as both a booking agency and talent buyer provides engagement opportunities to national and international acts across Canada, the U.S., and through its reciprocal arrangements, in European and Asian markets. This partnership, along with widespread media attention will be sure to raise the profile of BC's dynamic blues duo.

The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer are not known for sticking to conventionality. Their modern take on blues and roots music has been described as “‘blues that gets you in the crotch” and their dedication to preserving and promoting the blues has helped introduce the genre to younger fans all over the country.
