Warner Bros. Records is proud to announce the signing of Durham, North Carolina’s Delta Rae, whose debut album, Carry The Fire, was just released on June 19th.

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.”

Delta Rae are the pride of Durham, North Carolina. The 6 person unit – 3 siblings, Brittany, Ian & Eric Hölljes along with Elizabeth Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson – create a sound rich in Carolina soul with hypnotizing  4-part boy/girl harmonies. Think Americana meets Alternative meets blue grass meets pop.  The band put on an incredible live performance and have headlined shows to sold out crowds across the country and played several shows at SXSW in Austin this year.  They are currently out on the road and will play a variety of festivals this summer and fall including Mountain Jam in Upstate NY and Harvest Fest in Arkansas (a full list of upcoming dates is below.)
