CD Review: Delta Rae "Carry The Fire" For Country Music

From Durham, NC comes a new band, deep-rooted in country-folk/Americana, as Delta Rae released their debut album, "Carry The Fire" on June 19 through Sire Records. They recently appeared on The Tonight Show and also sold out the Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA. Delta Rae are ready to bring four-part harmonies and heartfelt vocals to radio and music venues across the U.S.

The new album begins with “Holding On To Good” as singer Britney Holljes pours her heart into her performance of this slow-building acoustic, country-folk song. The harmonies on this album are outstanding, just check out the mellow “Country House.” The album’s first single “Bottom Of The River” sounds like a slave chant as the complete band harmonies give the song a powerful effect with hardly any instruments. The pounding drums continue during “Dance In The Graveyards” as they sing about living and enjoy life. The album’s latest single, “Is There Anyone Out There” keeps building with intensity and harmonizing that rocks the chorus. The album ends with some more great harmonies in “Hey, Hey, Hey” as the island beats give the song a fun, lighter tone.

Delta Rae began their tour in mid-June and will be on the road through August. They have two stops in Connecticut on July 14 in Westport and on August 9 at The Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun Casino.  They also have a few festivals in October and November.
