C.P. Love

Born in Louisiana just outside of New Orleans' colorful French Quarter, CP Love grew up surrounded by a heritage of Blues and Jazz. CP was raised listening to the greats, many of who also started their music careers on the Mississippi, down in New Orleans.

Sam Cook, Elmo James, and Johnny Taylor all became the foundation of Blues that inspired CP to create his own style. Filled with soul and high energy, CP delivers his music with a tremendous amount of feeling through a clear soulful voice that was made for Blues. The only son of Roy and Corine Love, CP took to music as a teenager. Local bands solicited CP's guitar playing and he found himself with professional gigs as early as age 15. Being too young to legally enter, let alone play in a club, on occasion when police would stop in during one of their gigs, CP would quickly disappear and wait out back till authotities left.
