Delta Rae
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.”
Frances Cone

Frances Cone is a Nashville based indie folk band. Founder Christina Cone grew up in South Carolina, made the classic move to New York City, had her heart broken 27 times, met the love of her life and moved to Nashville. She seems preternaturally capable of writing songs focused on capturing the insane, unthinking fireworks of the human heart. Anxiety. Heartbreak. Terrifying love. The secrets of a diary so sacred and precious it only exists internally, every word an eyes-shut-tight whisper. To create music like that, such as on their album ‘Late Riser’, takes actual, emotional bravery. It takes a level of empathy that stays locked and unavailable in most people. Luckily, Christina and her multi-instrumentalist musical and life partner Andrew Doherty found each other in Brooklyn NY and all the locks failed. They started creating what would become ‘Late Riser’. Between them there was just enough courage to jump.

They landed in Nashville, TN and immediately found a home in the city’s thriving alternative scene. There were challenges and successes and but all along the songs kept coming. Music lovers at Noisey, Billboard, and Stereogum began to take notice. NPR invited the band to perform at their Tiny Desk concert series. The record is a testament to what modern pop music is capable of when imbued with honesty and emotion so palpable you can taste it in your mouth. It is pure feeling: watching a fireworks display through happy tears.  - Michael Flynn
