Six-piece band Delta Rae hails from Durham, NC with Liz Hopkins and Brittany Holljes fronting the robust group with sultry harmonies rounded out by Holljes’ 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 Holljes siblings’ mother wrote about a Southern girl of the same name who summons the Greek gods to earth.
Headlining over 100 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’ 30 Under 30 list. Delta Rae were recently named One to Watch in 2018 by Billboard, CMT & Rolling Stone.
Now signed to Big Machine Label Group’s imprint The Valory Music Co., Delta Rae are on tour in support of their latest release, A Long And Happy Life, and their latest radio single “No Peace in Quiet.”
Lucette has firmly established herself in both the Edmonton and international music scene. Although still emerging, the waves she has made within the Country/Americana world are evident in the opportunities that have graced her path. 2014 saw an extremely successful independent release, showcasing at Nashville’s Americana Fest, and ending the year with a support slot on Grammy Award Winner Sturgill Simpson’s tour. Since then she has gone on to tour over 70 cities and 40 states, 3 provinces in Canada, and played esteemed festivals all over North America.
Although only 25 years of age, it is undeniable that Lucette has a surprisingly old soul, which brings audiences of all ages together for her dynamic stage show. Her commitment to creating soulful, raw, and relatable music has brought her to tours with Texas legends like Joe Ely and Alejandro Escovedo, new wave artists such as Mason Jennings and David Ramirez, and brings audiences to an intimate and heartfelt experience every time she plays. Her unwavering voice and mature songwriting is truly evidence that Lucette is one to watch. Her debut release “Black is the Color” currently has over 5 million spotify streams, with her single “Bobby Reid” at over 3 million on it’s own.
Most recently she opened for Netflix documentary star Rodriguez in Calgary and Vancouver, notably playing to a sold out crowd at Vancouver’s legendary Orpheum theatre. She plans to release her sophomore album in 2018, creating a richer, more soulful sound.
