An amalgamation of blues, rock, funk, soul and world music, Australian singer/ songwriter "Peter D. Harper" creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica, and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. By combining traditional and modern influences, borrowing from Western and Aboriginal music, Harper & Midwest Kind has created a highly original take on the roots genre that is sometimes labelled 'World Blues'. Harper’s innovative use of electronic enhancement and feed back breaks the traditional boundaries of the blues harp, giving his music its distinctive harmonics and effects. The powerful guitar sounds and the unique drone of the didgeridoo create raw yet eerie sonic textures, somehow sounding primal and contemporary at the same time. No Depression Magazine,'s Rod Ames, says Harper "has written and arranged some of the most soulful blues-rock filled music I've heard in quite sometime".  

Harper has become a huge favourite on the world wide festival scene with an average of 20 to 30 festivals and 200 club dates per year. It was during one of these festival appearances that Chip Eagle, Publisher for Blues Revue/ Blueswax enthusiastically offered "Harper is one of the most exciting acts on the live scene today".  Harper recently took home a 2014 Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Vocalist.
