We shot a ton of great video content in 2015, but when I think about the cream of 2015's crop, it's impossible to leave out Delta Rae. We trekked down to Long Island City in Queens that day to shoot the fiery Americana act, and expectations were high. You don't get Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham to record a song with you without having some serious musical chops. And, thankfully, Delta Rae didn't disappoint.
After that session was over, I spent the next twelve months with "Run," "Scared," and "Chasing Twisters" stuck in my head on repeat. Delta Rae aren't just masters of the instrumental elements of our current Americana renaissance. Their three lead vocalists are old-fashioned powerhouses, and if you can hear Elizabeth Hopkins belt out "Chasing Twisters" without getting chills, you might be broken.
