Preview Stunning “Do You Ever Dream?” Video Ahead of the Immersive Musical Experience
NASHVILLE, TN (September 5, 2018) – Delta Rae kicks off their much-anticipated,16-week residency at The Basement tonight in Nashville (1604 8th Ave S.) with Carrie Welling and Liz Longley taking the stage at 8:00P. As promised, they have been teasing a special guest for the evening who will make the lucky fans in the intimate crowd “Surrender.” Tickets for the show sold out online, prompting the band to open the doors for a limited number of $10 walkup guests.
The Delta Rae Revival will offer a new immersive experience from the moment fans arrive to the stage as audiences assemble every Wednesday from September 5 through December 19. This three-dimensional experience offers a palpable energy and dynamic rarely seen during concerts. More surprises are to come each week and will be announced throughout the next months over the band’s social media.
The wait is over for loyal supporters eager for new music. Leading up to their Music City celebration, Delta Rae has continued to create inside and outside the studio and today officially released “Do You Ever Dream?” to all digital partners. The song comes alive in an accompanying new video filmed in the band’s origin state of North Carolina and across the globe in Rekjavik, Iceland with director, Law. The stunning cinematic endeavor captures the complexity between two people whose relationship has fallen cold. Lead vocalist Brittany Holljes stars in the video portraying a dream-sequence visual depicting the reality of love lost and a yearning for more. She and her bandmate brother Eric Holljes (vocals, piano) produced this soul-stirring journey with Law that also features bandmates Liz Hopkins (lead vocals), Ian Holljes (vocals, guitar), Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass).

“One of my best friends from college is a genius filmmaker who directed our first music video for 'Bottom of the River,'" expressed Eric. “He’s always wanted to shoot a video in Iceland, so we booked the cheapest tickets we could find, story-boarded on the flight, and traveled around the gravel roads eating salami and cheese sandwiches in a rental car, pulling over to shoot when we saw something beautiful. We wrote the song after Brittany’s break up with someone who didn’t share her imagination and vision for the future, and I think it was cathartic for her to finally tell that story. For me, it was one of the most creative experiences of my life and it has jumpstarted the next chapter for the band, which is proving to be our most ambitious and creative yet.”
Added Law, “Shooting in Iceland was an unforgettable experience. Every day was a fight against the elements, whether it was wind, rain, snow, sleet, cliff edges or puffins, Brittany was a trooper and overcame it all. She also asked to do everything barefoot because it just wasn’t difficult enough.”
The six-piece troupe will add an interactive element to the new song and more from their hearty catalogue – including hits from their Valory Music Co. EP’s A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE and THE BLACKBIRD SESSIONS – on stage week to week. The Delta Rae Revival offers first-timers and longtime fans a perfect combination of light and dark of Southern storytelling accompanied by impressive set design that Eric conceptualized and built.
