Raised in the beautiful coastal
city of Perth, Western Australia, Harper is known for his soulful
vocals, unique harmonica performances and his innovative song
writing style. He also includes the intensely spiritual didgeridoo
("Yidaki"), an Australian indigenous instrument). Harper grew up
listening to folk, soul and blues music and surfing Western
Australia's incredible coast line.
Award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Peter D. Harper -- known in the music world simply as "Harper" -- creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Harper's latest CD, "Show Your Love," features 11 original road-tested tracks recorded with his well-traveled Detroit-based touring band "Midwest Kind." "Show Your Love" hit # 3 on Billboard, USA and remained in the Top Ten for an incredible six months!
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 50's rhythm and blues, a 60's message of love and unity, and 70's 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.
