Dave Plaehn

Profile:
Dave Plaehn was born and raised in Iowa. Both his parents were singers and he played in a high school band covering The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Henrix, Bob Dylan and more.

In college he played in a jug band, developing his singing and harmonica playing. After college, he moved to Madison WI and joined with Tony Brown, Ted Wingfield, and Jim Cowan to form The Tony Brown Band. He left Madison in the late 70's and began focusing more on songwriting. His first album Smokin' was released in 1980 with all original songs. His next release soon followed, as a blues/folk/jazz EP called Mouth Full Of Blues.

He then moved to Oregon in the mid 1980's, joining Neal Gladstone & Company. He started performing with slide guitarist Jeff Hino as a duo in 1990. They went on to release the mostly acoustic blues CD "On Your Bond" in 1996. In 2002, they released "Can't Get My Rest" which is a mix of acoustic and electric blues. They continue to perform in the Plaehn-Hino Blues Band.

In 1997, Dave was endorsed as a harmonica player by Hohner, Inc. That same year he sat in with the OSU-Corvallis Symphony. His newer releases are "CrazyMan" released in 2008, "Amos Got Soul" in 2013, and "Radio Sister" in 2014. Dave continues to release music to this day.
