Grammy-Award winning, multi-platinum-selling artists Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite are bringing their second joint album No Mercy in This Land to stages across Australia this July.
Touring as a five piece line up, Ben and Charlie are continuing their 5 year-old collaboration, releasing their first new music together since the 2013 release of their collaborative album Get Up! which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Blues Albums Chart, winning a Grammy Award in 2014 for Best Blues Album. A musical expression of the kinship between the two, the album recounts both Ben and Charlie’s personal stories and adds to the sonic history of American struggle and survival.
The great Willie Dixon called blues, “the facts of life expressed through words and song.” No Mercy In This Land is that kind of record. It’s the sound of pain and perseverance, it’s a meditative church and a roaring fuzzed out celebration. Experience two unimaginably talented musicians as Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite hit the road this July across Australia.
