Mark Hummel will tour extensively in support of the CD, both with his own band and as the lead act in the Harmonica Blowout Tour with Lee Oskar, Magic Dick, Jerry Portnoy and Billy Boy Arnold performing at Festivals and high profile clubs like B.B. Kings in NYC. Karen Leipziger of KL Productions will supply publicity for both the CD and the tour. 200 plus Blues Radio Markets will also be serviced.
He's been described in a 2005 Blues Revue magazine cover story as a "harmonica god," and you'll soon hear why on Mark Hummel's "Ain't Easy No More," the West Coast harp ace's dynamic third release on the Electro-Fi label. Mark has a deep love of the blues and it's showcased through his vocals, songwriting and harmonica mastery on this new CD which also features his razor sharp band The Blues Survivors. Especially noteworthy is the original track "Big Easy," Mark's heartfelt tribute to the city of New Orleans and the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
