In a relatively short period of time, Della Mae has become a sensation in the music world. Commanding a powerful collective chemistry with vocal, instrumental, and songwriting talent to spare, the Boston-based combo mines time-honored elements to create music that's unmistakably fresh and contemporary.
The group quickly won an enthusiastic following through their high-energy live performances at festivals around the country. The band expanded its reputation with their self-released first album, 2011's I Built This Heart, which won an impressive amount of attention for a D.I.Y. release.
"A 'woman' who can burn the pants off everyone at a Texas fiddle contest AND sit just as comfortably in an Irish, bluegrass, Swedish or swing jam. Kimber Ludiker represents this new ideal of a truly well-rounded musician with deep roots and a wide open mind."
— Mike Marshall, Mike Marshall
'This World Oft Can Be,' Della Mae's Rounder debut, shows that like The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers, and Punch Brothers, the five multitalented young women of Della Mae are respectful of American musical tradition, but not restricted by it, combining centuries' worth of musical influences with an emotionally tough, undeniably modern songwriting sensibility. In a relatively short period of time, the band has become a sensation in the music world, commanding a powerful collective chemistry with vocal, instrumental, and songwriting talent to spare. 'This World Oft Can Be,' recorded at Johnny Cash's cabin in Hendersonville, Tennessee and mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, The Pixies, Uncle Tupelo), mines time-honored elements to create music that's unmistakably fresh and contemporary.
Singer-songwriter-instrumentalist Phoebe Hunt just can’t stay planted in one spot for long, and that insatiable wanderlust drives everything she does — from mastering myriad musical styles to living the life of a touring musician.
An Austin-to-Nashville émigré, the gifted Americana-pop artist headed to another musical center, Los Angeles, to record her self-titled debut EP with producer Matt Rollings, who helped create a captivating introduction to her solo work. Propelled by her genre-jumping fiddle, Hunt wraps her sultry voice and sincere lyrics right around listeners’ souls with each song. Influenced by Country, Western swing, blues, gypsy, jazz and soul Hunt’s music shifts moods from innocent and playful to seductive and intimate in the blink of a beat. But the quality that shines through most of all is her honesty.
A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Hunt spent her college years touring around the Lone Star state with folk trio the Hudsons. After graduation, she hopped in the Belleville Outfit’s van, spending four years touring nationally with the renowned Americana act. She also shared songwriting and lead-vocal credits on two albums.
Hunt spent the past year in Nashville, honing her songwriting skills and touring with Kentuckian cellist and songwriter, Ben Sollee. She also spent time traveling in India, where she donated her time and passions to a remote village school in the Bhatti Mines outside of Delhi, further expanding her understanding of different people and cultures. Compassion and grace inform Hunt’s ever-evolving world vision of music’s power to heal, and that vision has become the focus of her musical journey.
"With her sultry voice, and clever lyrics, Hunt is a spellbinding performer...hopefully just the beginning of a solid songwriting career
from this already accomplished young musician."
Meet Phoebe Hunt, and fall in love.
