  An Evening with Delta Spirit

Delta Spirit

Acclaimed San Diego-bred five-piece Delta Spirit add fall dates to their extensive nationwide tour celebrating the release of their anticipated album Into the Wide, due September 9 via Dualtone Records. Keeping an eye toward the live experience is always essential to the band. "We just want the songs to be as epic and meaningful as possible when we play them in front of people, which is the be-all and end-all for us as a band," says Matt Vasquez (vocals, guitar).
Into the Wide follows the band's 2012 self-titled release, which charted #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers and was praised by Rolling Stone for its "broader sonic palette." The latest teaser trailer featuring the song "Live On" is streaming now at http://youtu.be/WqcrPa83__U. See below for full track listing.
The new album was born in a flood-ruined, cave-like, rat-colonized room in Delta Spirit's new hometown of Brooklyn. The band spent more than a year writing together in the windowless studio they rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy. "That sense of feeling trapped in our studio and in the city definitely gave the album more of a weight than our previous records and played a big part in this being our moodiest recording yet," notes Kelly Winrich (multi-instrumentalist, vocals) of the experience. When it came time to record, the band relocated to Maze Studios in Atlanta and teamed up with producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter), who helped breathe new life and brighter energy into the songs while still capturing the claustrophobia of their creative writing space. Of the recording process, Brandon Young (drums) explains, "One of the most important things was getting back to all of us being in a room together for every single song and recording everything live."
Formed in 2005, Delta Spirit is Will Mclaren (guitar), Jon Jameson (bass), Winrich, Young and Vasquez. Their debut full-length Ode to Sunshine garnered a widespread critical response leading to numerous television performances including "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," "Conan," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and "Later with Jools Holland," as well as relentless touring and festival appearances worldwide including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo among many others.

Co-produced by the band and Chris Sheldon (who has previously worked with Pixies, Radiohead & Foo Fighters, amongst others), 'Ancient Secrets' was recorded at Livingston Studios in North London, and will be available as a digital download plus a numbered, colored vinyl 10".

Inspired in part by Apocalyptic times, 'Ancient Secrets' includes five ripping tracks, with man's stuttering evolution at the core of the action; the featured songs include 'Mermaid's Revenge' (about our ill-fated attempts to conquer nature), for which a video has just been filmed, and 'Zero Friends' (society's slow death by social networking).

Arum Rae, formerly known as White Dress, is a modern day siren based in Brooklyn, by way of Austin, TX. Arum's music and her voice is here to inspire... it is honest at its core so that you can do with it what you please, with no regrets. Everything Arum has lived through and all of the songs that have been born from it, are not meant to impress. They are meant to lead. Her ability to transcend styles allows the music to complement country, resurrect the soul, feel the blues, and ruin then re-­invent rock, through her deeply rooted foundation as a singer--songwriter. Arum's name is derived from a water lily (Arum lily) in Latin. Growing up, her family moved often, so at every new school, she always found shelter in the music programs. At her third high school, her choir teacher heard her potential, and took Arum under his wing and helped secure her a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music. During her last semester in Boston she started writing original music, learning to play guitar to accompany herself so she wouldn't have to depend on anyone and find her own voice... artistically and literally, studying the vocal stylings of Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone.

After relocating to Brooklyn, Arum was introduced to producer Sanford Livingston, and the two hit it off immediately. They began recording together in August 2013 and are pleased to present their first EP, Warranted Queen. With a minimal use of instrumentation, combined with Sanford's heavy beats tailored around Arum's dynamic voice and lyrics, the EP is a brilliant fusion of their mutual influences. Arum has toured extensively over the past several years, opening up for, and sharing stages with legends like Willie Nelson, Rodriguez, BB King, Dan Auerbach, Gary Clark Jr., Peter Bjorn & John, and The Civil Wars, to name a few. She also co-wrote the song "If I Didn't Know Better" with John Paul White of The Civil Wars that eventually found its way to the season one theme song on the NBC television show Nashville, and charted as a hit single on iTunes and Billboard. With renewed energy and passion, Arum looks to 2014 and beyond to place her mark on the industry that has given her so much. A mark she hopes will embolden artists and singers like herself to pursue their passions without pause or regret or fear.
