NEW RELEASES FROM BLIND PIG!
Welcome to summer! Time to pick up on some cool new music from Blind Pig Records. Now you can pre-order our upcoming new releases from guitarist Elvin Bishop and American troubadour Peter Karp.
ELVIN BISHOP - "BOOTY BUMPIN'" - BPCD5118
A rollicking new live set from blues icon Elvin Bishop. Ever since coming of age as a bluesman on Chicago's South Side and joining up as an original member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band in 1965, Elvin has always infused his music with a distinctive freshness and vitality. His reputation as an outstanding live performer comes from his ability to turn every show into a raucous party. Or, as Rolling Stone put it, “a good-time romp, delivered with unflagging enthusiasm and wit.” Downbeat said, “Bishop is a good-hearted soul whose life mission is the entertain to the best of his ability.” This CD finds him at the top of his game, delighting his audience with new tunes and old favorites. Note: The first 150 people who order Elvin's new CD from our website will receive a copy autographed by Mr. Bishop himself.
PETER KARP - "SHADOWS AND CRACKS" - BPCD5115
Peter Karp is a master songsmith and a truly original and unique voice in American roots music. He’s an accomplished musician, but it’s his knack for penning songs that truly defines this prolific artist and places him in an elite class. He crafts tunes that are poignant, funny, irreverent, romantic and true to life. Blues Revue called him “an underground genius…like Jackson Browne and John Prine, with a healthy dose of blues, too.” Steppin’ Out magazine said, “Karp’s unusual style enables him to effortlessly merge folk, funk, blues and rock into a steamy mixture of American music styles…Fans of J.J. Cale, Freddie King, and Bob Dylan will love him.”
