The harps and gear I used on “Double Lucky”
As a rule, most of the pieces on “The Lucky One” have somewhere between three and five harmonica parts in the mix. “Double Lucky” is an exception, with only two harps, and I think its simplicity makes it a good place to start my series…
“The Lucky One” is here! Check out the songs!
Richard Hunter has released â€œThe Lucky One,â€ the groundbreaking 21st century rock harmonica record. The 13 songs on this record, including ten originals plus covers of Morphineâ€™s â€œEarly to Bed,â€ Amon Tobinâ€™s â€œOrphan Black,â€ and ? (Question Mark) and the Mysteriansâ€™s â€œ96 Tearsâ€, are full on rockers with a unique sound driven by layers of amped-up effected harmonicas. This record establishes entirely new roles for the harmonica in a rock band, and the result is a big new sound and new life for the instrument.

“The Lucky One” is on target for release this month!
I haven’t posted much to this blog lately; been too busy behind the scenes getting “The Lucky One” ready for release. At this point the overdubs are done, the mixes are underway, and we’re getting the artwork ready for production. Whew! Lotta stuff. Worth the…
“The Lucky One” is coming soon, but not before Christmas
I’m nearly finished with vocal and harp overdubs for my record “The Lucky One.” I’d originally thought we’d have the record available for sale (and for distribution to the people who contributed to the Indiegogo fundraiser) by Christmas, but it’s looking more like January now….
Making the Harps a Little More Grippy
When I recorded with the band in Philadelphia for my upcoming record “The Lucky One,” we had to turn off the air conditioning in the studio every time we did a take, and that room got pretty toasty after a while. On some of the…
Something for now: The Road Out of Here
“The Road Out of Here” is one of the pieces on my upcoming record “The Lucky One.” I’ve previously released a solo looped version of this tune via this site. The version on “The Lucky One” is supported by a full band, but it’s got…
