Malcolm Arison


Malcolm Arison aka Hank Williamson was born in Manchester/UK. He is playing the HOHNER Blues Harp since he has been 14 years old. Malcolm left England as a teenager and travelled with his guitar and harmonica as a street musician trough Europe. This shaped his playing ability for which he is distinguished today. In 2006 Malcolm joined the band The BossHoss where he is playing Blues Harp, Mandolin and Washboard. Since then he has been touring with the band through Europe but also realizes from time to time solo-projects like the composition of film music or playing together with other musicians. Furthermore Malcolm appeared in the Pro-7-Show "The Voice of Germany" as musical advisor of Alec "Boss" Völkel and Sascha "Hoss" Vollmer.

Malcolm is both endorsee for HOHNER harmonicas and for HOHNER guitars of the Essential Roots and Essential Pro series.


Harmonica has been my lifestyle. I got my first HOHNER BLUESHARP for my fourteenth birthday and it has accompanied me from my first days of playing on the streets. My personal favorites are the MARINE BAND DELUXE and the SPECIAL 20.
