NASHVILLE, TN (August 22, 2018) – DELTA RAE embodies both the light and dark of Southern storytelling with their music … Dynamic interludes. Hushed tones. Bombastic drums. Angelic serenades. Primal vocals. Honing the eclectic style in front of an increasing congregation at headlining shows and coveted festival slots over the last decade, the band brings their 16-week residency to The Basement (1604 8th Ave S.) in Nashville this fall. The North Carolina-bred six-piece troupe today announced the initial round of openers: Austin Jenckes, Adam Wakefield, Baylor Wilson, Carolina Story, Carolina Glaser, Carrie Welling, Chloe Gilligan, Dallas Caroline, Emma Hern, Hannah Dasher, Jaden Michaels, Jillette Johnson, Josh Jenkins, Joel Levi, Kalie Shorr, Katie Cole, Kitty Hawk, Lainey Wilson, Lauren Jenkins, Levon, Liz Longley, Payton Smith, Sarahbeth Taite, Southern Avenue, The Last Bandoleros and The Redhill Valleys.
The Delta Rae Revival will offer a new immersive experience from the parking lot to the stage as audiences assemble every Wednesday from September 5 through December 19. Fans will have a three-dimensional experience rarely seen during musical live shows. On sale now at DeltaRae.com, tickets are $10 with a limited amount available online and the remainder sold first-come-first-serve at the door. Special guests and fresh songs are on tap each week and will be announced throughout the next months over the band’s social media.
“Since finding our home here in Nashville we’ve become friends with many artists we have long admired. We’re beyond excited and honored that this level of talent will share the stage with us every night for The Revival. Some of them are hidden gems, some are dominating the Music City scene, all are incredible, and we are thrilled to combine forces to create a musical experience unlike anything this town has ever seen. Country fans deserve a show like this, southern magic and music for the soul,” expresses Brittany Holljes.
Equally prominent in their commanding dual lead vocals, Brittany Holljes and Liz Hopkins alternate between two stylistic tones of warm love songs and swampy, mysterious tracks. Delta Rae is rounded out with Holljes’ brothers Eric (vocals, piano) and Ian (vocals, guitar) as well as Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass). Crafting their moniker from a mythical story their mother wrote, the siblings’ upbringing has been at the core of Delta Rae’s sound as artists, songwriters and social activists. Said the Nashville Scene, “Their vocal harmonies are powerful, their stage show is impassioned, and frankly they are the nicest bunch of folks out there…”
Creators through and through, Delta Rae literally builds out their vibe with hand-shaped visuals including their interactive set and soul-bearing sentiments, evident with the Eric-penned “No Peace In Quiet.” They released back-to-back EPs just last year alone – A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE and THE BLACKBIRD SESSIONS – on The Valory Music Co.
