Delta Rae

#sxsw #DeltaRae


From the deep woods of North Carolina comes Delta Rae. With pure Carolina soul, a rich rootsy sound and four powerhouse lead vocalists, Delta Rae’s music is born for the live setting. Swells of gorgeous harmonies and infectious hooks float atop an array of Americana alt-pop influences. Effortlessly bridging rock, folk and piano-pop with gospel, country and the blues, Delta Rae is food for the musical soul.

The band - made up of siblings Ian (vocals/guitar), Eric (vocals/keyboard/guitar/piano) and Brittany Holljes (vocals/percussion), Elizabeth Hopkins (vocals/percussion), Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass) – have been headlining shows across the country for the past two years. They’ve also shared the stage with the likes of Carbon Leaf, Rooney, Hanson and Edwin McCain. It has been their gripping vocal deliveries, dynamic interplay on stage and the hope-filled songs that have been winning over every audience they play for. You’ll be hearing a lot more from this promising young band in the coming months.

Delta Rae recently signed to Sire Records and plans to release their debut LP in Spring 2012.
