Singer-songwriter, slide guitarist and pianist Peter Karp has carved out his own unique niche. At once funny, poignant, irreverent, romantic and always true to life, Karp’s compositions reflect his own intriguing backstory.  Raised both in the swamps of New Jersey and rural trailer parks of Southern Alabama, Karp masterfully crafts music fueled with a Yankee-Rebel juxtaposition by infusing genuine emotion, humor and candor in a setting of exquisitely performed rhythms and compelling vocalization. As a songwriter Karp first attracted national attention and critical acclaim through his collaboration with guitarist Mick Taylor of the Rolling Stones who recorded and toured with Karp on his first label release, The Turning Point. His next national release on Blind Pig Records, Shadows and Cracks, had Karp sharing the main stage with the venerable Delbert McClinton, New Orleans-based roots rock band, The Subdudes, and three-time Grammy winner, blues great Keb’ Mo’. In 2008 Karp formed The Karp Foley Band with Canadian blues guitarist Sue Foley. As the principle songwriter of the group Karp made 2 very successful albums, “He Said She Said” and “Beyond The Crossroads.” Early in 2016 Karp released “The Arson’s Match” a live show recorded by Sirius radio at The Bottom Line in NYC. That album is part of a charity project that he started for Ovarian Cancer Research, and has already received award nominations and positive reviews from around the world.

Karp’s unmistakable lyrical style, consummate handling of the slide guitar and his propensity for dynamic performances have garnered him comparisons to such luminaries as James Taylor, Bob Dylan, and John Prine, and in turn a reputation as a remarkably rare talent in American roots music.
