Peter Karp Band



Peter Karp Band (Americana Blues, Nashville, TN)  New CD Alabama Town, featuring Mick Taylor, Garth Hudson

Singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist Peter Karp has carved out his own unique niche, raised both in the swamps of New Jersey and  trailer parks in southern Alabama. That will leave a mark. Karp masterfully crafts music fueled with a Yankee-Rebel juxtaposition by infusing genuine emotion, humor and candor.


As a songwriter Karp first saw national attention through his collaboration with guitarist Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones who recorded and toured with Karp on his first release, The Turning Point. Blind Pig Records next released Shadows and Cracks. In 2008 Karp formed The Karp Foley Band with Canadian blues guitarist Sue Foley. With Karp as the principle songwriter, they released two CDs on Blind Pig that went to #1 on the Blues Chart. In 2016 Karp released “The Arson’s Match” a live show with Mick Taylor recorded by Sirius radio at The Bottom Line in NYC, part of a charity project that he started for Ovarian Cancer Research. This was nominated for 2 Blues Blast Awards in 2016 and Best Live Album from Blues 411 Jimi Awards. This year's "Alabama Town" has been on the Blues Chart for most of the year also and up for a few "Best Of" awards.



“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’s one cool cookie, all right — from his muscular slide guitar soloing to his observational and oh-so-true songwriting and, most of all, that soulful expressive voice of his, dripping with innuendo.  Dude’s entertaining as hell.”  Mike Greenblatt, Goldmine Magazine


“Karp is his own man, an artist who blends roots music styles into something that transcends blues, country, R&B and swamp, John Prine’s wordplay, Joe Ely’s rocking instincts, Billy Joe Shaver’s fatalistic outlook.”  J. Poet –
