About Me

My name is Geneviève, big harmonica fanatic before the Everlasting, I have been playing Blues harmonica since the 90es without however restricting myself to this particular type of music. I'm living in Brussel in Belgium.
I have a personnal Myspace :
I am initially graduated with an university degree in 'History of Arts and Archéology' from the Brussel Free University (ULB). I have always listen to american roots music and Blues and... harmonica ! After my studies i had the opportunity to follow some harmonica masterclasses in 1994,95 but i'm primarily a self taught harmonica player, training myself and playing again and again with many bands since the early 90's (94).
Today, i play with 'the Excello's' ( Swing Jump Blues band), the ' Bluesdealers ' ( Blues, boogie), and in duo with Jos Steen (surrealistic and multi-instrumentalist artist) with who i have record a CD called 'HARD BOILED BLUES' ( Sojneets product. n°34, 2009) : it's anarchist blues, CD available on request. I also play regularly with other musiciens for gigs, jam or recordings and have new projets....
I made few trips in the USA in the 90's, in San Francisco, Chicago and NY where i have visited the more popular blues club, meet and played with local musiciens and harpplayers. For the little story : i have tried in this time to have the 'green card' but without success.... after that my children were born  i decided to stay in Belgium....
Material : before i used a Fender Bassman 59 amplifier (reissue), now i use  Sonny Junior amplifier and for duo, trio or some studio i use a little vintage Kalamazoo amplifier or an Lectrolab. I play espacially with Astatic microphones but also an Electro voice 638 or anTurner custom mic. I play on Hohner harmonicas.



Harmonicas, Blues of course from its most acoustic form to its wildest electric one, playing live, I also love american roots music such as folk, oldtime, Bluegrass, hillbilly, cajun, zydeco...also Swing, old jazz and free jazz and some rock ( i'm for ever a big fan of Neil Young...and Patti Smith); i also play Didgeridoo, musical saw (and sometime frailing banjo or mandoline); meet musiciens; friends; Arts; ethnology, Amerindien culture, african art; philosophy, beat generation... and in sport Vtt mountainbike, swiming.
