Summer Vacation

Written by Bill on July 13, 2015 – 10:25 am -

IMG_0521We just returned from our vacation and it was great to see so many family and friends while on our trip.
While most vacations are for relaxing and recharging the batteries, that wasn’t the case for me, as I managed to squeeze in six shows between the trips to Chicago, Cedar Point, Put-In-Bay and Lake Cumberland, Kentucky…I need a vacation from this vacation!

Now it’s back to hitting the bricks here in town and I look forward to seeing my Arizona friends at some shows.  I’ll be performing for the first time at the Culinary Dropout in Tempe this Friday, the 17th, 8-11pm.  Saturday, the 18th I’ll be returning to one of my favorite spots in North Scottsdale, Rare Earth Pizza and Wine.  I’ll be playing 6-9pm.

I hope to see you at a show!

2015 – New Music

Written by Bill on March 11, 2015 – 5:09 pm -

Bill New Pic BWI’ve been writing new tunes as well as digging back through unfinished ideas that I’ve kept catalogued for years.  Every musician has their own method of composing and at times, it can be frustrating to bring new tunes to life.  We’ve all encountered ‘writer’s block’ and it can be discouraging when the creative faucet dries up.  I’ve heard someone say that there are times when an artist simply has nothing to say, at the moment.  That’s not a bad thing, it’s just the soul and spirit dealing with the now and preparing to bring something to the forefront, in the future.  When I compose I always write the date on the sheet music.  I was going back through my ideas and see some of these dating back over ten years!  Sometimes you have to put something away for a while then come back to it at a later time.  The joy of discovery is finding that missing chord progression that brings a tune together and brings life to the song.  Here’s a new song I’ve been playing out for the past couple months.  It’s still evolving and I really enjoy playing it at shows.  I hope you enjoy!

A Sincere Thank You

Written by Bill on January 26, 2015 – 1:56 pm -

Bill Harp MIMI wanted to thank everyone who came to the show at the MIM (Musical Instrument Museum) on January 22nd. It’s opportunities like that evening, that make performing well worth it. Having a quiet, attentive crowd that listens to and hangs on to every note, is the most rewarding experience a musician can have.

Sincerely,

Bill

The Phoenix Acoustic Musicians Network

Written by Bill on January 5, 2015 – 10:36 am -

live cd label swirlI’ve started a new Facebook group designed to promote dialogue, regarding the workings of what it takes to perform as an acoustic musician.  It’s called the Phoenix Acoustic Musicians Network.  While this site is meant to promote acoustic musicians in the greater Phoenix, AZ valley, it also serves as a great platform to share ideas, tips and tricks, gear and business practices, as they relate to acoustic music.  If you’re a solo-acoustic performer, play in an acoustic duo or ensemble, please check out the page!

Peace, Love and Altered Tunings!

Bill New Pic BW2014 was a productive year and I’m looking forward to continuing that momentum into 2015.  I’ll be performing at some new venues as well as returning to some I haven’t played in awhile.  I’ve been writing new material and have been diving back into my archives of unfinished song ideas to complete another CD.  As always, I appreciate your support of independent music and  I wish you and your families a Happy New Year!

MY TOP-TEN ESSENTIAL GIG ITEMS

Written by Bill on November 12, 2014 – 8:14 pm -

MacGyver 1I’ve always been one to try and live by the motto, “Always be prepared”.  Some of my close friends have been known to jokingly call me “MacGyver” when it comes to fixing things, or trying to make substitutions for something that’s missing, when completing the task at hand.

I carry that mantra with me when performing live and thought I’d share my essential top-ten items that I take with me, when performing my solo-acoustic shows. While these items are not in a specific order, I’ve found that keeping this Read more »
