SINGER - SONGWRITER - BLUES-HARP PLAYER
With “V8 capacity” vocals and a reputation as Australia’s Queen of the blues-harp, Dorothy-Jane performs as a duo, trio and with her smokin’ hot band.
Interview with 'Bluesharp Info'
I was recently asked to participate in on online bluesharp group 'Bluesharp Info'. From time to time the group interviews different harp players from around the world, asking each the same questions. They have interviewed some top players so it makes for an interesting read for harp enthusiasts. Check it out!
This is a double compilation album curated by Norman Davis, a blues radio presenter from Idaho and released by Ruf Records. The album celebrates female harmonica players, with 31 tracks from players across the world, including 2 Aussies - Dorothy-Jane and Marion Turner. Norman says “I hope this album will shed some light on what has been a black hole in the blues universe. Perhaps this will help female players get the attention that has passed them by in the past.”
The album can be purchased through itunes, Ruf Records and other online stores.
