Peter Karp grew up in New Jersey and in rural Alabama, becoming fully immersed in the music scene in both locations. After playing clubs in NYC like CBGBs, he took a 12 year hiatus from the music business. Then, after an intense period of songwriting, he released a record that caught the attention of Mick Taylor. Mick would end up playing on Peter’s next LP, The Turning Point, and shortly thereafter the two toured.
