If Fleetwood Mac came up in North Carolina, they might resemble Delta Rae.
They’ve taken the time to harness a romantic, southern mythos to open emotionalism, sugary, red-blooded harmonies, anthemic hooks and a propulsive, guitar-driven attack.
Six-piece band Delta Rae hails from Durham, North Carolina. Liz Hopkins and Brittany Hölljes front the robust group with sultry harmonies rounded out by Hölljes’s brothers Eric (vocals, piano) and Ian (vocals, guitar) as well as Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass). The band chose their moniker from a mythical story the Hölljes siblings’ mother wrote about a Southern girl of the same name who summons the Greek gods to earth.
Headlining over one hundred shows each year and a regular on the festival circuit since forming in 2009, Delta Rae’s larger-than-life performances have earned coveted spots at Bonnaroo, Tortuga Music Festival, Austin City Limits, Firefly, Bumbershoot, Summerfest, Hangout Fest, Kaaboo, Basilica, Voodoo, and Lollapalooza. They have received national attention, with features in NPR, Washington Post, and New York Times, in addition to late-night television performances and inclusion in Forbes’s “30 Under 30” list.
