Mad Dog writes from the moment and sings from his heart. Although mostly known for his amazing blues harmonica, he is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and song writer. He influences include sources as divergent as William Butler Yeats and the delta blues. He has been featured on numerous recordings on harmonica, vocals, spoken word, Theremin, Theremini, Native American flute and assorted percussion. His songwriting is sincere, simple and often humorous. His spontaneous musical compositions often involve experimental electronic sound sculpting using the Theremin. His music and poetry have been played on TV & radio stations around the world. He has recorded numerous solo projects as well as with the Mad Dog Blues Experience, the Astral Project, Papa Juke, Mojo Medicine Show, Dan Hertel (Verses The Inevitable), Alex Bernat, Kristin McLean, Jenn Cleary, Rex Peoples, Johnny Johnston, Felonius Smith, Chris Hammong, Shawn Wright, Yo Yo Ma and Derek Trucks.

Mad Dog digs the Shaker Mad Dog Harp Mic!

Mad Dog digs the Mad Dog.

Finally, a mic that both screams some nasty hot leads and still articulates crisp rhythms with a tone almost as full as an acoustic recording mic. For me the Mad Dog does it all while still giving me the comfort and unique, strong hand cupping effects of the famous Mad Cat mic.
