Artist of the day: Dana Harmon




Some might recognize Dana Harmon as the guitarist of Tampa funk/metal outfit Samurai Shotgun. But in recent months he's taken his musical talents in an entirely new direction.

Harmon's solo debut, Guitar Sessions, is a spacey funk-soul throwback that calls to mind the wailing, meandering riffs of his own guitar hero, Carlos Santana. It's experimental, Latin-tinged classic rock with touches of psychedelic R&B.

Guitar Sessions is available for free download on Harmon's Bandcamp site. If you'd like to say thanks for that gift, check him out at one of two local shows: Wednesday (2/2) at 9:30 p.m. at the Good Luck Cafe in Ybor City ($3/$5); and Feb. 10 at 8:30 p.m. at Pegasus Lounge in Tampa.
