Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers / Press

“Harpe and the Swingers make an organic, modern sound that rocks free of the sometimes bloated blues interpretations”

“channeling the sound of Delta guys who got electric in that transitional period in the '40s and '50s on their way north (and the golden era of blues)”

“something akin to what the blues sounded like, Muddy and his band plugged in, which sounds better than ever in these hands.”

“This blues chanteuse breathes new, whiskey-soaked life into the likes of Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe, with a sound that's uniquely Charles River Delta.”
