Now you can learn from them how to unlock the artist inside of you.

Gifted Nashville songwriter, critically acclaimed American troubadour, Peter Karp, is a master songsmith with an art for spinning true-to-life emotions, humor, and candor. With an upbringing that was equal parts southern Alabama and the swamps of New Jersey, Karps music is fueled by the Yankee-Rebel juxtaposition. A master songsmith, an accomplished guitarist and boogie-woogie pianist who repeatedly transfixes audiences across the US and Canada. His first national release The Turning Point showcased his guitar and slide licks infused by his love of Albert King and Elmore James. Peter Karp personifies the amorphous Americana sound, seamlessly blending roots music with a high sense of entertainment.

Sue Foley is considered to be one of the finest blues/roots artists working today. Born to a working class family Sue spent her early childhood moving from Canadian town to town with her mother. At 16 she embarked on her professional career. By 21 she was living in Austin TX and recording for legendary blues label Antones Records. Her first CD Young Girl Blues quickly established her unique talents as a blues guitarist and songwriter. Throughout the 90s she took to the road with her paisley Telecaster and honed her craft working/sharing the stage with such artists as BB King, Buddy Guy, Lucinda Williams and Tom Petty. After moving back to Canada Sue won the prestigious Juno award for her critically acclaimed CD Love Coming Down.
