2013 collaboration. Singer/songwriter Ben Harper has teamed with renowned harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite to create Get Up!, a piercing song-cycle of struggle and heart. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Harper, Get Up!, is his 12th studio album and first new recording since 2011's Give Till It's Gone (Virgin). A striking mix of blues, gospel, roots and R&B, Get Up! features 10 vivid musical character studies, skillfully rendered in cinematic detail, all written or co-written by Harper. Charlie Musselwhite's searing point/counter-point harmonica accentuates Harper's vocals throughout Get Up!, tying its songs together into a cohesive musical whole.
