American folk rock band Delta Rae are bringing their latest tour to the Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater’s Cleveland Street District.
Currently featured as VH1’s You Oughta Know Artist on the Rise, Delta Rae are the pride of Durham, North Carolina. The six-person unit, three siblings (Brittany, Ian & Eric Hölljes) along with Elizabeth Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson, create a sound rich in Carolina soul with hypnotizing four-part boy/girl harmonies. Think Americana meets Alternative meets bluegrass meets pop. The band puts on an incredible live performance and has headlined shows to sold-out crowds across the country and played several shows at SXSW in Austin 2012.
Delta Rae’s debut album Carry The Fire was released in June of this year by Warner Bros. Records. Delta Rae are one of the first signings in quite a while by the legendary Seymour Stein himself, who is renowned for having a keen eye for new talent and had a hand in the careers of such iconic artists as the Ramones, Talking Heads, the Pretenders, Madonna, and The Smiths. Stein called the band “an important addition to our overall roster. Their music, all original, is a mix of blues, country and gospel with a strong rock and roll influence. I hate labels, but if forced, I would have to call their music ‘Original Americana,’ not unlike what the English are sending over via Mumford & Sons and others. I’m very proud to welcome Delta Rae to Sire. I know you will love Delta Rae and their music as much as I do.”
Tickets: $20.00, $25.00
