Biography

Maker Danny Kortchmar (Billy Joel, Spin Doctors, Fabulous Thunderbirds), also a guitarist, made a decision to type his own blues music group within the mid-’90s. Known as Slo-Leak, the music group comprises Kortchmar on acoustic guitar, ex-Paul Butterfield bassist Harvey Brooks and vocalist/guitarist Charlie Karp. For the reasons of their 1st album, Slo Drip, on Pure Information, from Georgetown, CT, the trio utilized two drummers, Leroy Clouden and Wayne Wormworth. Other music artists, most from the brand new York City region, consist of Steve Russell on harmonica, Rob Paparozzi on harmonica, Fred McFarlane on piano and Chris Eminizer on tenor and baritone saxophones. Apart from dealing with Butterfield for quite some time, bassist Brooks also forged a popularity for his use Bob Dylan as well as the Doorways. Guitarist and vocalist Karp provides documented and toured with Pal Mls, Aerosmith, Buster Poindexter and Meatloaf. The associates of Slo-Leak present some flavor and understanding of the idiom within the music they cover, obscure gems like Willie Dixon’s “I Cry for you personally,” Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “Katie Mae,” Bo Diddley’s “YOU DO NOT Like Me” and Jimmy Liggins’ “Drunk,” however they do so within a 1990s blues-rock style. The group’s founders, Karp, Kortchmar and Brooks, also toss in several self-penned music on the debut record. Unless this group is preparing to tour, however, it?s likely that their renown won’t pass on much beyond NEW YORK and Westport, Connecticut, where Kortchmar and far of all of those other band are structured. They came back in 1999 with Once the Clock Hits 12.
