This week’s featured Homegrown Country artist is Delta Rae from Durham!
Earthy familial alt-pop outfit Delta Rae skillfully juggle gospel-tinged country-rock, sensual blue-eyed soul, and harmony-laden Americana, resulting in an infectious, radio-ready sound that falls somewhere between Nickel Creek and Adele.
Formed in 2009 as a four-piece around the talents of siblings Ian, Eric, and Brittany Hölljes, along with Elizabeth Hopkins, the North Carolina-based band expanded to a sextet the following year with the additions of Mike McKee and Grant Emerson. They released their first major-label debut Carry the Fire in 2012, their second album After it All in 2015 and are currently working on their third and fourth albums: The Light and The Dark.
This week’s show also features music by:
- Jon Wood from Wake Forest, NC
- Debonzo Brothers from Raleigh, NC
- Dani Dease from Charlotte, NC
- Trey Calloway from Charlotte, NC
