My First Broken Heart (Since My Last Broken Heart)
Cry Me a River
The Country Side of Harmonica Sam represents a rare and unique branch of contemporary country music. This is country music like it sounded in the late 50’s and early 60’s; more modern sounding than the 40’s Hillbilly style sometimes seen on the rockabilly scene around Europe.
At the same time it’s far from the contemporary Nashville sound of country music. With a steady 4/4 shuffle, steel guitar and tic-tac bass, the band performs their own original songs right alongside classics from Faron Young, Skeets McDonald, Billy Walker and Ray Price - to name a few. The band members include bandmaster Peter Andersson (pedal steel), Ulrik Jansson (upright bass), Patrik Malmros (drums), Johan Bandling Melin (lead guitar/harmony vocals) and Harmonica Sam (lead vocals/ rhythm guitar). In 2013 the band released a 7” single, 'Changing Her Thinking' creating a buzz among country music fans and rockabillies. In 2015 the band went to Berlin and Lightning Recorders to record their debut album 'Open Letter to the Blues'. For the recording of their second album 'A Drink After Midnight' the band decided to record at the local Gula Studion in Malmö, Sweden. With the release of 'True Lies/Lookout heart’ in 2016, the first single from 'A Drink After Midnight', The Country Side of Harmonica Sam was among the nominees in the category Honky Tonk Group for the second consecutive year at Ameripolitan Music Awards in Austin, Texas. 'A Drink After Midnight’, released on El Toro Records (LP & CD) May 5, 2017.
