North Carolina’s Delta Rae is a excellent new addition to a growing pop-folk field of performers that are almost single-handedly bringing the Americana music genre into the mainstream. They join their contemporaries The Civil Wars, Mumford and Sons, the Avett Brothers and others embodying a branch of the Americana family tree that is attracting a significant number of fans that wouldn’t typically give twang and roots a listen. While these bands share the music on a larger stage, and bring more people into the genre tent, the soul remains intact.
Header over to my twitter page and for a chance to win a copy of their debut “Carry The Fire” and ook for a review of the album on Twang Nation soon. In the meantime you can stream the entire album over at Rolling Stone. The band has also been busy participating recently in Billboard’s “Under Cover” program by covering Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” as well as playing their single, “Bottom Of The River.”
Delta Rae will also be in LA on Tuesday celebrating the release of their album with a sold out show at the Troubadour. They’ll also be performing at the GRAMMY Museum in LA on Monday, June 18th as part of an event with Seymour Stein. They are also currently on tour and, if that wasn’t enough the band will also be performing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno June 25th.
A larger stage indeed
