Blue Mother Tupelo

With Anu Sava

Rising up from the dusty Delta lowlands and muddy bayou banks of Indianola, Mississippi through the bluffs of Memphis to the mountains of east Tennessee, comes the unique Southern Soul sound of Blue Mother Tupelo. Paste Magazine wrote, "Blue Mother Tupelo is quite possibly the best husband and wife duo you've never heard of. Micol and Ricky Davis play swampy, gospel-tinged southern soul-blues. Micol displays the full-bodied vocal fire of Janis Joplin, while she rattles and slaps her tambourine with the ecstasy and know-how of a black gospel choir member. Ricky plays muscular, stabbing figures on acoustic guitar and dobro, and the two join in close, soul-searing harmonies like only intimate kin can; a heady blend of otherworldly longing and thisworldly passion, bodies swaying and tambourines shaken emphatically." BMT's dreamy rendition of the Paul Anka classic, "Put Your Head On My Shoulder" was included on the big screen in the closing scene of the movie, "Daltry Calhoun" (Miramax Films). Their critically and fan acclaimed album of original songs, "Heaven & Earth" made waves across Americana radio worldwide, debuting at #2 behind Kris Kristofferson on the EuroAmericana Chart and hitting the Top 40 on Americana radio in the USA, and remained in the Top 40 of Roots Music Report's "Roots Rock" Chart for a year.  Check them out by clicking HERE.
