Harper and Midwest Kind:- World blues and roots music from Australia.

New CD "Show Your Love" # 3 on Billboard - 6 months in Top Ten/ 14 x Blues/ World Awards
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". No Depression Magazine,'s (USA) Rod Ames, adds that Harper " has written and arranged some of the most soulful blues rock filled music I have ever heard..". While Chip Eagle, (Blues Revue) said at a recent festival "..Harper is the most exciting artist on the live scene today". 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's new CD "Show Your Love" (Blu Harp) reached # 3 internationally on the Billboard Blues Charts, only being beaten out by Eric Clapton and Joe Bonamassa and an amazing 6 months in the Top Ten, . Also # 1 in the Netherlands, # 1 in Italy and # 1 on the Australian Blues Charts (Top 5 for 5 months). Harper and Midwest Kind have recently returned from an amazing sell out tour of Australia and a ground breaking debut two week tour of China. Harper and Midwest Kind continue their record of being booked at 30 - 35 festivals/ 200 shows per calendar year.

HARPER REVIEWS:
A singer/songwriter and masterful musician,
Harper brings his stories to life with his unique blend of styles that incorporates elements of blues, soul, folk, R&B and so much more.· Harper's work on the harmonica is superb...and then some!!!. Reflections in Blues, USA.


There are many moments of true brilliancy....Harper's new album is, undoubtedly, the pinnacle of his career so far. Gio Pilato, Blue Bird Reviews, United Kingdom

Impassioned vocals and an equally emotion-laden harp! Harper’s songs – all eleven tracks here are originals – are distinctive and often catchy blues, avoiding blues clichés though rooted in a late 60s/early 70s style, occasionally with a tinge of Americana or rock. This is a fine release, recommended to all lovers of modern blues – but don’t expect a guitar fest, this is far more subtle than that. Blues Matters, United Kingdom

This originality deserves the attention of all music lovers! Rootstime, Belgium

A beautiful album with fine music and especially meaningful lyrics. Eric Campfens, Barn Owl Blues, The Netherlands

"Show Your Love" is not your conventional blues album, but Harper’s vocals and harmonica virtuosity, along with the tight support of the backing band are a plus, and the use of the “Down Under” instruments add a lot of character to these songs ... already good songs anyway. If this is what we’re calling “World Blues,” count me in. The terrific music and the positive messages make this album a keeper in most discerning fans’ collections. Graham Clarke, Blue Night USA

“Harper is an original, playing the harmonica like an authentic Chicago bluesman, singing about unity and love like a member of peacenik jam band, belting crisp vocals like a straight-up classic rock performer, and then pioneering the didgeridoo into these popular forms of modern music. Unique and quality music of this kind is truly a rare treat”. Karyn Albano, Modern Rock Review, USA

"Harper was born to play the harmonica. He has an amazing presence and sense of what fits in when he is playing. His blues is original!” Muzik Reviews, USA.
