RJ Mischo is considered by critics and fans worldwide to be in the upper echelon of today’s great blues harp players and singers.
RJ started playing at the age of ten and by the time he was 19 he was working as a full-time professional musician. He began his career in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis & St. Paul, Minnesota, an area that has spawned so many famous musicians. RJ cut his teeth with the legends of the Twin Cities’ Blues scene Percy Strother, Mojo Buford, Sonny Rogers & Lazy Bill Lucas. It was in 1992 that RJ caught the attention of blues fans worldwide with the release of “Ready to Go”. This album is now of cult status amongst collectors. In 1996 RJ Mischo moved to California where he continued to grow & develop his skills. He established himself a wider audience with a prolific performance schedule at major venues and festivals across the United States, Europe and extensively up and down the West Coast.

Zweifelsohne zählt der US-Amerikaner R.J. Mischo heute zu den höchst angesehenen Meistern der Blues-Harmonika. Er spielt sein Instrument mit Kraft und grosser Leidenschaft und er ist ein ausdrucksstarker Sänger mit einem eigenen Stil. Wild, abwechslungsreich, innovativ als Harpspieler und mit Talent ausgezeichnet, spannende Songs mit relevanten Texten zu schreiben, steht sein Name für schweisstreibende Auftritte mit ungeschliffenem Blues in der Tradition der Chicagoer Southside.
