While Cajun and zydeco usually get the most attention, there’s a special brand of music that evolved along the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, Louisiana, and southeast Texas (with influences reaching into southern Arkansas and Tennessee) called “swamp pop.”

The genre combines early R&B formats with a mainstream sensibility and a strong blues feeling. But what makes this music unusual is that most swamp pop musicians, and a large part of the music’s audience, are white.

Swamp Pop is the sequel to LocoBop’s Swamp Rock album, releases in 2010 featuring some of the most exciting and authentic interpreters of this genre.

Artists featured here include: Bourbon Street heavyweight Phat2sDay; harmonica virtuoso Tommy Dardar from Houston, Texas; the Pale Prince of Beale Street, Papa Don McMinn; the avatar blues star from Second Life, VonJohin; Memphis guitar blaster Terry Wall and his The Wallbangers; Shreveport, Louisiana natives, The Anderson Brothers; the explosive Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers; the inimitably soulful Memphis All Stars; good time Louisiana party rockers Charlie Cuccia and Bill E. Shaw; the King of Swamp Pop, G.G. Shinn; and Memphian Don Nix whose legend is legend itself.
