Listen and be convinced People! Yeah, that's right! ...His last name is Harp, brother! ...And after hearing his prowess in blowing those tiny 20 reeds one might think Deak Harp was born with that harmonica in his mouth!.....You just have to listen to his MySpace track "Ridin' The Rails" one time and you'll be convinced. If you can recall those large, vintage American contraptions we once called trains...Or if you remember anything of the sorts, it's gonna put a smile on your face!

Deak started playing harmonica at age 12, when he heard a schoolmate playing blues on a harmonica. Deak listened to British blues untill his brother Bob told him about a harp master named James Cotton.
