“a mash-up of all the world's most danceable music, from electro to Afro-beat,
to reggaeton and post-punk.
It's a hell of an experience to see them live.”

“It’s an electro dance martini.
Take a few shots of synth, pour on reggae and funk drums,
shake, shake, shake and serve over rockin’ guitar lines.”

Lovewhip is led by the soulful electro-rock diva/guitarist/frontwoman “Empress Erin” Harpe, a rockstar through and through, looking sexy in her oversized shades while wowing crowds with her mesmerizing over-the-top psychadelic guitar solos, percussion breakdowns, and dance moves. Backing up the Empress of Electro-Rock is her partner in crime “Juicy Jim” Countryman, on bass and sequencer, providing a layered and full sound that includes electronics, synthesizer, and vocoded robot voices. Drummer “Bob Weird” Nisi brings the sexy beats and backup vocals. This 3-piece can rock any crowd and get them dancing!
Lovewhip has released four critically acclaimed studio albums (Whip It Baby!, Bouncehall, Virtual Booty Machine, and Love Electric) and one live album (Live Booty Pop). Their latest album, Love Electric, is a futuristic dance party complete with unicorns, icebots, intrigue, and rock'n'roll! Each song on the album is chock full of catchy hooks, mixing dancehall reggae with disco, pop and rock. The album was produced by Jake Zavracky (producer/composer, of the bands Cyanide Valentine and Quick Fix), and recorded in Boston and Brooklyn. “It all comes together like a Kraftwerk cover band hanging out with Fischerspooner on a DEVO appreciation night at the hottest dance club in town.”
