“AL LERMAN serves up original blues as enthusiastic, congenial and markedly tuneful as one is likely to come across; the consistent strength of the material and the overall good-natured atmosphere being the constants here.” - Roots Music Report
AL LERMAN is a veteran bluesman with a highly personal style. His brand new album "Country-Fried Blues" will be released in spring 2024.

His soulful delivery, coupled with wry and thoughtful songwriting, make him an engaging and hypnotic solo performer. He is considered among the top harmonica players in the country, and has been heard on countless recordings and live sessions. Al was founder of the much-loved band FATHEAD (1992-2016), garnering two JUNO AWARDS, and he is a long-time member of the renowned Maple Blues Band. A solid fixture in the blues & roots scene for over fifty years, Lerman has amassed an impressive legacy of songs along with a deserving list of industry awards & nominations.
