"Beyond The Crossroads is a natural extension of what we started with "He Said - She Said" in that we're writing songs with themes in mind. Positivity, renewal, absolution." says Foley.
"These times are trying - in the heart and in the streets. Restless winds are blowing. It's personal not business. Now is the time to fire up the amps and blow heat." quips Karp.
On the heels of Blind Pig recording artists Peter Karp and Sue Foley's 2010 critically acclaimed and artistically daring collaboration "He Said - She Said" comes their next exciting CD: "Beyond The Crossroads." A high voltage, plank spankin', piano boogyin', slide guitar stompin' blues-rockin' CD that showcases 12 brilliantly crafted and unique original compositions that have become the trademark of these two noted singer-songwriter guitarists.
The CD hit the Top 10 on the Billboard Blues Charts and was #1 for 6 weeks on the National Blues and Roots Charts. For the last two years they have kept up a frenetic touring pace with features at the Bayfront Blues Festival, New York State Blues Festival, Pittsburgh Blues Festival, Bethlehem Musikfest, the Americana Festival, and Castel San Pietro Blues in Italy. "He Said She Said" was featured on Sirius/XM Radio, NPR, CBC radio, PBS TV, The House of Blues Bluesmobile and Woodsongs Radio Hour among others. They earned nominations at the International Blues Music Awards in Memphis and the Maple Blues Awards in Canada.
"Beyond The Crossroads" marks the newest chapter in the Karp-Foley collaboration. Recorded in the US and Canada it features their road band, Mike Catapano on drums and Niles Terrat on bass, as well as some old friends and bandmates. Formerly, Sue Foley toured with her own band, based out of Canada. But she is best known as one of Antone’s girls, in Austin, where she had her first record label, starting her international career. Peter Karp hails from NJ and has had a celebrated career as an ace singer/songwriter and strong guitarist and keyboardist. Together they spark comparisons to other musical pairings like Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, and Robert Plant and Allison Krauss.
