HARPER WINS 2014 DETROIT MUSIC AWARD FOR “OUTSTANDING VOCALIST”
An amalgamation of blues, rock, soul and world music, multi award winning Australian singer/ songwriter “Peter D. Harper” creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica, and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. By combining traditional and modern influences, borrowing from Western and World music, Harper has created a highly original take on the roots genre which many have labeled “World Blues.” His innovative use of electronic enhancement and feedback, breaks the traditional boundaries of the harmonica, giving his music its distinctive harmonics and effects. The powerful guitar sounds and the unique drone of the didgeridoo create raw yet eerie sonic textures, some how sounding primal and contemporary at the same time. 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.” Harper is backed by his incredible Detroit based band “Midwest Kind”  www.harper.biz
