Primich, Gary

Ace blues harmonicist/vocalist/songwriter Gary Primich is among a rare breed of harpists on the blues scene today--those who learned directly at the feet of the masters and proved themselves on the mean streets and ghetto club stages of Chicago. A dedicated musician who not only reveres tradition but forges his own innovative sound, Primich honed his meaty, fat-toned harmonica chops and energetic R&B vocal style at Chicago's storied and legendary Maxwell Street Market. Jamming there in the late '70s and early '80s along greats like Big Walter Horton, Johnny Littlejohn, Sunnyland Slim, and John Henry Davis, Gary received a first-hand blues education that could never be taught in a classroom. Although a resident of Austin, Texas for the last fifteen years, Primich still embodies the characteristic blue collar work ethic of his Midwest stomping grounds, recording six albums in the last ten years, and relentlessly playing over 200 nights per year nationally and internationally. Gary is also held in high esteem by his peers. Juke Logan says »Gary Primich scares the bejesus outta me. As a harmonica player's harmonica player, that is.« Cub Koda echoes that sentiment with »He's always willing to lay his heart on the line for the music.« In addition to his solo efforts, Gary is an in-demand sideman, gigging and recording with notables such as Omar & The Howlers, Tish Hinojosa, Steve James and Libbi Bosworth. Humble, ever a bluesman and »a regular Joe,« he envisions his epitaph. »He changed his oil every 3000 miles.«
