What the press is saying about our new album:
“(★★★★) Avoiding the perils of predictability, these four New Englanders craft a fresh, genre-crossing group sound…” –DownBeat Magazine
“Erin describes the sounds on Love Whip Blues as a Blues/Roots/Americana cocktail. Once you have tasted Erin’s unique Delta Blues cocktail, you will be asking for a second round.” –Gregg Saur, WYCE (Grand Rapids/West Michigan)
“They won me over with a sound that harkens back to the time of juke joints, with some modern funk and rock woven in. Erin Harpe’s got a righteous set of pipes and plays a mean guitar and the rest of the band has a whole lot of awesome going on.” –Aimsel Ponti, MaineToday's Face the Music
“I saw the band this summer at the Northampton Summer Concert Series and I can't overstate how impressive they were. The group blasts out a singular brand of blues that is anchored in an old time Mississippi delta sound... Harpe is an amazing talent and the band is a revelation.” –George Lenker, MassLive.com
“The vocals and writing are on point and the result is charmer. She even gives “Angel from Montgomery” that certain Delta thing you never heard in it before that gives the song a certain sass and twist that brings it back to the future. Well done.” –Chris Spector, Midwest Record
“Listening to Love Whip Blues, one appreciates why this group has been developing a large following around Boston. In fact, they won the Boston Blues Society’s Blues Battle and will be competing in Memphis at the 2015 International Blues Challenge. One certainly expects more will be heard from them.” –Ron Weinstock, In A Blue Mood
“Love Whip Blues is a good time album, full of retro touches, fine musicianship, and a lively vocal performance from Erin Harpe... If you like blues music, which is well played and sung, with an eye on keeping the feet tapping, then this album should be on your list.” –Blues Matters (UK)
“An electro-dance diva in another incarnation, Boston-based vocalist/guitarist Erin Harpe’s precocious vocals mesh well with the blues, imbuing this set with a most appealing personality without overtaking her obvious flair for the roots.” –Duane Verh, Roots Music Report
The album’s also doing great on the radio charts, worldwide!
