Hi Friends,

There is exciting news in the Octavia Music World.
Hang on to your seats! We have been recording my next two originals albums. I am ecstatic to report that for the first time I am taking full advantage of being in the studio and exerting all freedom to record vocal harmonies behind my vocal leads and play harmonica behind and around my harmonica leads etc…. All because “I Can!” For decades I have been recording supporting vocal and instrumental leads with rhythm and background harp behind everyone but myself. The magic of the studio affords me to do this behind myself for a change, and even though I can not achieve this live I certainly “can” create music from my soul in the studio. It’s a blast!
An imaginative audio creation of originals that I love and perform is in the making. My title track River Sigh turned a corner in production that I could never have imagined. To date it is the strongest of my songs and it is a stone cold super powerful rock number! This album has the amazing guitar leads from our guitarist Mike Grisafi…. Mike and I interweave solo’s in places and his amazing sound will fire you up and melt you down! We have 7 songs close to finished so far with a balance of 13 we are working on that are my next two albums.
Yes I’m super excited!
Performance updates can be found at at OctaviaBlues.com and The Octavia Blues harp at Facebook
Keep well music lovers everywhere.

Hi Friends,

Octavia is very excited and proud to have been endorsed by Suzuki Music USA and Godin Guitars. Octavia has been playing Suzuki Pro Master Valved Harmonicas for many years.  The Manji is also a part of Octavia’s harmonica collection. Both harmonicas have a clear bright tone with great action. They are well constructed, reliable and durable to an aggressive work and practice schedule.  New to Octavia is the Suzuki Chromatix harmonica.
Should you need anything Suzuki, please do not hesitate to call Daron Stinton at Suzuki Music USA, 1-800-854-1594. Daron is great to work with. Tell him Octavia sent you!

Octavia has been performing on Godin Guitars for several years. The A6 Ultra and the Acousticaster 40th Anniversary edditions are part of her collection. They are chambered solid body electric guitars providing both a rich clear acoustic sound from the acoustic bridge as well as slick electric sounds that the Humbucker pick up provides. Both guitars sound feel and look great. No one could ever take Octavia from her Guild guitars until Godin. There is “something” in the buttery feel of the Godin Guitar necks.

Octavia recently found out that Sophie Tucker was her great aunt!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophie_Tucker… Nice!
