Hello all you music lovers out there. I'm Sheldon Ziro, stage name, "Bent Reed". I formed and fronted my own band for a little over 4 years called "Bent Reed & Co." in Seattle, WA. I've been playing harmonica since 2002 and it's changed my life. I love playing with other like-minded musicians. I left Seattle at the end of 2007 and hit the road. I've been traveling up and down the west coast ever since, stopping in Portland, OR. everytime to play with other great musicians in a great music city. I've since left the west cost and am currently heading east bound and down and am ultimately headed for Nashville, TN. to start my own band again, this time focusing on almost all original material with a few choice covers thrown into the mix. I love to talk harmonica and also am interested in learning more about customizing my own harmonicas. Everything that I've learned about it so far has been completely on my own thru online sources. So if you know anything about the whole "customization" process, please feel free to fill me in with a few tips here and there because I'd love to learn more! After being on Harmonica Space I've met some great people here and have also learned a little more about working on my own harps. I also love hearing other great harmonica players. YouTube is a huge part of my online activities, along with MySpace and most recently Facebook, which I prefer for most communications! Please feel free to connect with me on any of these sites also. Harmonica Space seems like a great idea and a wonderful place to meet other players! Please drop me a line, a comment, or a friend request, anytime!
Sincerely, Sheldon "Bent Reed" Ziro ®
Music, dogs, family, sleight of hand, movies, and of course...HARMONICAS!!!
