    Blues in Mind
Songwriter. Guitarist. Singer. Pianist. Bandleader. Operating within the fiery brand of roots/blues music that Karp calls "Soul-influenced Americana-Blues rock." The music is crackling with smart and witty lyrics.
His ability to give the audience such a great time while doing it is refreshing. Peter Karp is a storyteller who also happens to be an assertive singer, an insightful songwriter, a spellbinding performer, and a searing slide guitarist. Fortunately, those distinctions aren’t mutually exclusive. Nor is it a contradiction to call Karp both a master of the blues and an Americana aficionado. In Karp’s case, all these threads are bound tightly together.
“Guys like Peter Karp, James Taylor and Bob Dylan embody Americana Blues, and us English guys are inspired by it.” - Mick Taylor, The Rolling Stones
Karp first saw national attention when guitarist Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones recorded and toured with Karp on his third indie release. Signed to Blind Pig Records he released several other albums, including two with Sue Foley, that worked their way to the top of the Blues and Billboard Charts. A common theme they possess is Karp’s heartfelt, critically acclaimed songwriting amidst a group of masterful musicians. Ever the multi-tasker, Karp bounces between several instruments, handling electric resonator slide guitar, acoustic guitar — as well as harmonica and piano. Each song is driven home with his soulful voice and original songwriting style.
