I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm a pretty huge Fleetwood Mac fan. And while there are plenty of other bands from the 70s that modern bands draw heavily from for sonic inspiration, I can't name too many contemporary acts that make me want to play my vinyl copy of Rumours
afterwards. Maybe it's the vocal trio of two women and a guy. Maybe it's the country-folk tinged soft rock sound. Maybe it's the intricate harmonies. But whenever I listen to Delta Rae
I can't help but think of Lindsay Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, and crew.
I don't make Fleetwood Mac comparisons lightly; they're one of my all-time favorite bands. And when I found out that we were shooting a session with Delta Rae Wednesday at Attic Studios
-- as well as an intimate session with singer-songwriter Greg Holden
-- I got incredibly excited. Delta Rae has been on our radar for years now, and with the release of 2015's excellent, After It All
, our adoration of this North Carolina family act has only grown.
The band played a rollicking, multi-song set which captures that even if you love Delta Rae's studio material, you haven't truly experienced the band until you have the chance to hear their songs live. Performing their new suite of tracks including "Run," "Scared," and "Chasing Twisters," Delta Rae never let their intensity and passion flag for a second. When the video finally premieres, it will go down as a Baeble session classic.
