He started with a house gig playing guitar and singing in a non-interruptive duo in ’80 opening up for comics at a comedy supper club in downtown Edmonton. Jesters presented many international acts from Phyllis Diller to Gary Muledeer, Harry Anderson and a young Andrew ""Dice"" Clay. That New Year’s Eve, his partner chickened out of an opening slot for the“Bad Habits blues band, but the show had to go on and it did. Now he was a solo act. Within a year of single gigs around town, he answered an ad in the newspaper"" Rock band looking for singer must be able to travel Harpdog spent 4 weeks with the band before giving his notice, he was ready to go out and build his own blues band. ""Yesterdays Paper ""was his first blues band. He took ‘em on the road and started his life long journey spreadin’ the blues like its news where ever he goes. From Alaska to Frisco and the Canadian West coast to the Capitol, he’s been there singing and playin’ the hell out of his harp. His official recordings: ""Beware of Dog"" ""Home is Where the Harp Is"" has received great reviews and acclaim and still stands the test of time.

Harpdog is a great blues man. This set captures the way he puts his individual stamp on everything he does. He is in total command onstage – and enjoying every minute. The addition of Will MacCalder is a bonus.
~ Holger Petersen ~ CKUA and CBC Radio ~

Brown is an excellent singer and bandleader who reminds me a lot of the late Hock Walsh and he has put together a program that you can often hear in clubs but seldom so well played - heavy on blues feeling.
~ John Valenteyn

Isn’t it nice to know that all the “fast – food / flavor of the week” blues artist are easily dispensed with when compared with the REAL THING.I mean the bona-fide, totally authentic purveyor of heart and soul, down-in-the-alley blues. And, belive you me, Harpdog Brown and the Bloodhounds are purveyors with pedigree.

~ Andy “Blues Boy” Grigg ~ Blues Review Magazine

""There's never been any question in my mind; Harpdog Brown is absolutely the 'genuine item, the real thing'. I'll say the same thing Eric Burdon once said to me,
""We're wild dogs from the same pack!""
