Bluesman AL LERMAN is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter. He was founder and leader of the 2X Juno Award winning
band FATHEAD, and along the way built a solid career touring as an acoustic solo act, accompanying himself on guitar and rack harmonica. An engaging and skilled artist, he is regarded among the top harmonica players in the country and his prowess on the instrument has earned him no less than ten Maple Blues Award nominations in that instrument category. Both his harp and wailing tenor saxophone have been heard on countless recordings/live sessions with some of the best in the blues, and his 2016 standout recording "Slow Burn" made the esteemed world-wide list of Top 100 Blues Albums. That same year he received a Maple Blues Award nomination for "Acoustic Act Of The Year". In 2017 he received a Recognition Award for “Leadership In Arts & Culture” from the County of Peterborough. A soulful musician with an impressive catalogue of well crafted songs and a wry wit to boot,  Al casts a magical spell on his audience wherever he goes.
Northern Bayou, Al's third studio album, offers up a tasty acoustic/electric musical gumbo that will not only please fans, but will undoubtedly make many new ones as well. Produced by Alec Fraser (bass), Lerman is also joined by Lance Anderson (piano/organ) and Chuck Keeping (drums). Special guest Morgan Davis (guitar) adds to the mix on the rollicking harp instrumental "Delta Stomp". Eleven stand-out tracks in all. Watch for it!
