It's been a good few years for the relentlessly hard working six piece rock band from Durham, NC, whose sophomore album After It All came out on April 7, 2015. Since the release of their debut album Carry The Fire in the summer of 2012 and 2013's follow-up EP Chasing Twisters, Delta Rae has been profiled everywhere from NPR and Time to Forbes. Rolling Stone proclaimed that "if Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae." VH1 hand selected them for their "You Oughta Know" Artist Of The Month program, and they performed not once, but twice on both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Conan. Live is where Delta Rae truly flourish, having spent the last year and a half playing to sold out venues from coast to coast, even sharing the stage with First Lady Michelle Obama when they performed during a Democratic rally at UNC Chapel Hill. They've played pretty much every festival under the sun, including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Voodoo, and are excited to be hitting the road again this spring.
They met. They fell in love. They wrote songs.
They fought. They made up. They broke up. They wrote songs.
At a time when for most it would be the end of a relationship, for Sydney duo Falls it was just the beginning. Every Wednesday night for almost two years, Falls played at a little hotel in Sydney called the Hollywood. It’s there that they found their sound and where they wrote the songs that would become their debut EP Into The Fire.
In this intimate setting, the connection between these two onstage was palpable. Their emotionally fueled live performances drawing rave reviews, with the Sydney Morning Herald noting "their voices sit next to each other like they've been pouring from the same pot of tea for years".
In late 2013, Falls caught the ear of Universal Music Group’s Verve Records. Upon signing to the label they moved to the US and have spent the past 12 months traversing the country playing shows and falling in love with the landscape and it’s people.
Having toured with The Lumineers, Passenger and Of Monsters and Men, Falls are fast developing an impressive live resume which also includes performances at Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, CMJ, Bumbershoot, Loufest, The Americana Music Festival and most recently Austin City Limits. In 2015 they’ll be hitting the US summer festivals again including Firefly and Bonnaroo.
The band spent this past winter in Omaha Nebraska putting the finishing touches on their debut album with producer Mike Mogis (Jenny Lewis, Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit, She & Him, M. Ward) – due out through Verve/Interscope in AUGUST 2015.
With an unmistakable sound, barefoot collaborators and best friends Falls are gently making a name for themselves.
Singer and songwriter Angelica Garcia’s journey “down the rabbit hole” began when she moved to Accomac, Virginia. Graduating from Los Angeles School for the Arts, the 17-year-old native Angeleno found herself living in a 200-year-old gothic brick home encircled by magnolia trees and under a blanket of bright stars. Her stepfather traded a career in the music industry for Episcopalian priesthood, and an Eastern Shore church would serve as his (and the family’s) first congregation. Isolated and alone, Angelica locked herself in the parish house and fashioned a musical world that veers between ghostly gorgeous countrified blues and sly swamp Americana. With a childlike whimsy, quirky sense of humor, and dynamic delivery, it could easily soundtrack an apparitions’ ball in some Faulknerian mansion. Upon first listen, it entranced Warner Bros. Records. Recorded by Charlie Peacock [The Civil Wars, Switchfoot] in Nashville, her full-length debut Medicine For Birds unlocks this world for everyone in 2016.
