"He Said, She Said" is an inspired collaboration of original songs adapted from correspondence the two shared through letters written over a two year period. These letters started as a casual exchange between two committed performers sharing their common bond of the loneliness of the road, the pain of separation from family and home and above all, the drive to make music. But as time went on, the letters they shared became more poignant, more revealing, more intimate. An account of the personal struggles and dramatic changes that were happening in their lives, they chronicle a crucial period of time of growth and struggle for them as artists and on a personal level.
Both artists had no idea and no intention at the time that the letters would become an album. Creatively, the creation of the album was an organic process, as the two songwriters eventually came to recognize that their letters provided the basic material for a series of songs.
Karp and Foley have also developed a compelling "He Said - She Said" live performance based on the album. The show features the interpersonal dynamic that formed the genesis and evolution of the recordings. The songs represent a meeting of hearts and minds, an interplay of shared artistic purpose and spiritual kinship.
Whether they're performing as an acoustic duo or with their electric band, the music encompasses elements of folk, jazz, flamenco, and blues, resulting in a show that is moving, literate, romantic, rocking and exciting.
Blues Revue Magazine says "'He Said - She Said' is a unique, daring idea beautifully executed by two talented, inspired artists unafraid to express themselves outside of - but still influenced by - their respective genres."
"He Said, She Said" released in March 2010 on Blind Pig Records hit 1 on the Blues Chart, Top 5 in the House of Blues Chart and Top 10 on the Billboard Blues Chart!
