Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers / "Love Whip Blues" (11/4/14)


We are particularly thrilled to welcome Boston's Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers to the VizzTone family. Erin learned to play Delta Blues guitar at an early age from her father, Maryland area bluesman Neil Harpe. Erin's travels brought her an appreciation of World music styles, particularly Afro-Beat and reggae. Landing in Boston, she did solo blues gigs, simultaneously started a electro-funk dance band called Lovewhip, and self-released a couple of acoustic blues CDs. A few years ago, Erin formed the Delta Swingers, a deep blues-based group that was also a dance band with a wealth of influences. The sound was aptly christened "Charles River Delta Blues". The Delta Swingers immediately won the Boston Blues Challenge, and went to Memphis for the International Blues Challenge. "Love Whip Blues" was recorded in Boston, then post-produced, mixed and mastered by the amazing Dave Gross at his Fat Rabbit Studios, with guest appearances by Dave Gross and Bob Margolin.
