PREVIEW: Delta Rae at the Varsity 3/31/2016


North Carolina’s Delta Rae are touring supporting their current album “After it All”. They will be at the Varsity Theater Thursday 3/31 and some tickets are still available HERE

The identity of the band and its six members has been key to both their current album and Delta Rae’s 2012 surging debut Carry The Fire. The group was formed in 2009 by three siblings, Ian, Eric and Brittany, whose childhood brought them around the U.S. to places like San Francisco, Nashville and Marietta, GA. After moving to Durham, NC for college, the trio partnered with Elizabeth, Mike and Grant to create energetic, impassioned music that could be a vehicle for layering their male-female vocals. The idea of dueling forces has lingered: their music continually reveals a tension between male and female, dark and light, and life and death. Carry The Fire was a snapshot of this aesthetic, recorded in only a few months with producer Alex Wong and funded entirely via Kickstarter before the band signed with Sire Records. It offered Delta Rae a platform for touring and the group spent the next year and a half on the road, and performing at festivals like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Hangout Festival. Along the way, the backdrop of America revealed itself to them.
Their show at First Avenue was outstanding and we are looking forward to seeing them in the Varsity’s setting where they play much closer to their fans.
