Its Time To Go,
Big Brown Land/ Levee Breaks
An amalgamation of blues, soul and world music, Australian singer/ songwriter «Peter D. Harper» now based in Detroit, creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica, and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Harper possesses a powerful soulful voice and a deep, almost mystical approach to music that some might say has evolved into its own genre. Harper calls it “World Blues” — a rich musical stew of ‘50s rhythm and blues, a ‘60s message of love and unity, and ‘70s funky soul, stirred up with masterful virtuoso harmonica and the deep, woody, percussive tones of the didgeridoo, served up in a feast of timeless mystery.
Harper has received an amazing 14 x Blues/ World Music awards (including a Gold Record) in the USA, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. He recently won a Detroit Music Award for «Outstanding Vocalist». Harper is backed by his talented Detroit based band «Midwest Kind» which features: Mike Howe on guitar, James Norris on Bass Guitar and Dee Washington on Drums. Harper has just released his new CD «Show Your Love» (Blu Harp). This incredible new CD reached # 3 internationally on the Billboard Blues Charts, only being beaten out by Eric Clapton and Joe Bonamassa, and an amazing six months in the Top Ten. Also # 1 in the Netherlands, # 1 in Italy and # 3 Debut on the Australian Blues Charts (Top 5 for 5 months)
