Al Lerman is a veteran bluesman with a highly personal style, able to move seamlessly through the windows of Country Blues, Chicago Blues, Soul Blues, Americana and New Orleans Blues. With a great knowledge of the blues tradition on both harmonica and guitar, he brings that sensibility to songs that are written about his own contemporary life and times. He is considered among the top harmonica players in the country, and he has been heard on countless recordings and live sessions.
Al was founder and leader of the much-loved band FATHEAD, and led them from 1992-2016, garnering two JUNO AWARDS. After years of writing for FATHEAD and his own solo recordings, Al has a legacy of songs that few Canadian blues artists can match. He has been nominated for twenty-six Maple Blues Awards, celebrating his work as a songwriter, harmonica player, acoustic act and more.
