Delta Rae
Delta Rae "Fresh out of the Bull City with a sound that recalls gospel choirs and big-vintage pop, Delta Rae welcomes summertime with soulful sounds that ring of timeless pop greats."( -The Daily Tar Heel) DELTA RAE is a force of nature -- Like a fire that can either warm your soul or burn the house down, they often do both. From a quiet house in the woods of North Carolina you can hear their voices ringing out, capturing the hope, optimism and unbridled energy of their generation. Comprised of siblings Ian, Eric, and Brittany Hölljes, along with childhood friend Liz Hopkins, and rhythm section Grant Emerson and Mike McKee, DELTA RAE has opened for Hanson, Carbon Leaf, Rooney, and Edwin McCain, among others, and sold over 4,000 copies of their independently released debut EP. Recently, DELTA RAE's song "Ooh Caroline", written by Ian and Eric (also co-writer of Mike Posner's #6 Billboard Hot 100 Hit, "Cooler Than Me"), was featured on NPR's nationally broadcast "The Story" reaching over 150 cities across the country. And beginning in February, 2011, the band will release singles from their next EP track by track for free download from their website: http://deltarae.com/
