Episode 85 – The Home Spun Sessions: Tarq Bowen

Up and coming Psych-Blues singer and slide guitarist extraordinaire, Tarq Bowen graces the Home Spun Sessions this week for a heavy-weight wig-out. Bowen is tearing up the contemporary British Blues scene with his killer guitar licks and highly original lyrics.


  • When Westerners interpret the quarter note scales of Eastern music, often it’s a success, sometimes a failure, but always well worth the attempt.
  • How important are words to you? Some artists can’t write lyrics for toffee!
  • Whisky all the way! Getting messy with the brothers Trice.
  • Hearing sounds in you head: How Brian Jones & John Coltrane were able to envisage what something would sound like on a different instrument.
  • The recorded version of a track should never be the final version. Keep reinventing that tune or it will become a yoke around your neck.
