Deep Roots is excited to welcome back Blue Mother Tupelo, the songwriting, recording, performing artists made up of husband & wife duo, Ricky & Micol Davis.
2020 found Blue Mother Tupelo celebrating 25 years of music together. 2021 found BMT pretty Quiet. 2022 resounds with Love, Soul & New Music on the Way!
Rising up from the bluffs of Memphis to the mountains of east Tennessee, through the Mississippi Delta, Nashville & now Como, MS, Blue Mother Tupelo oozes a deep kind of blue southern soul & roots rock sound that’s been described as truly Americana.
Blue Mother Tupelo is Ricky & Micol (pronounced “Michael”) Anne Davis. Our life together as (The) Blue Mother Tupelo began in Knoxville, Tennessee as a duo in 1995 & melding into various experimental configurations, from notable blues-rock electric quartet to a kind of acoustic driven country blues.
The two moved to Hendersonville, TN just outside of Nashville in 1998 where they lived, worked, toured in and out of, wrote songs and recorded for 21 years until heading to the quieter cusp of the North Mississippi hill country and the Delta just south of Memphis. Como, Mississippi is now their home.
Blue Mother Tupelo brings a seasoned edge to American Roots music. Their music is rhythmic, melodic, harmonic and soulful; and their recordings have reached the Top 5 on the Americana charts, their album, Heaven & Earth, reached #2 on the Euro Americana chart; and their song, “Playing With Fire” (co-written with Katie Armiger) was a Top 40 Country hit in the U.S. for Katie. A new Blue Mother Tupelo album is set to release in early 2022. Blue Mother Tupelo’s music is a genuine Southern – American blend. Whether you’ve seen BMT on a festival stage, in a songwriter’s round, heard them on the TV or the radio, you might feel a simply heartfelt connection that makes you feel you’ve known them forever.
