Vocals and Guitar
Paul Vallis came to LA in 2001 from London, UK where he had fronted his own band Bleeding Harp for 10 years and was a mainstay on the UK Blues Circuit. They played mainly London based Blues venues but also did the occasional European tour including opening for BB King at the Czeck Republic’s first ever Blues Festival in 2000.
Vallis and fellow founding member Tony Horkins formed a US crew of the band in 2002 with Jeff Marshall who is now the band’s MD. Bleeding Harp is now LA based and plays mainly on the SoCal Blues Circuit.
Bleeding Harp has just released a new 7 track EP available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Amazon and CDbaby.
Paul’s Harp playing leaves harp enthusiasts' jaws on the floor and his sultry blues laced vocal stylings also add to Bleeding Harp's unique sound. Paul's harp style is the best of old and new, traditional phrases followed by modern sounds and riffs put him on the cutting edge of the instrument's capabilities.
