DELTA SPIRIT

History From Below

2010-05-24

After gigging with San Diego emo band, Noise Ratchet, Jon Jameson (bass) and Brandon Young (drums) had enough and ventured forth on their own. Joined by Matthew Vasquez (vocals), Sean Walker (guitar), and Kelly Winrich (multi-instrumentalist), they formed Delta Spirit and released their debut album, "Ode to Sunshine" in 2007. After three years of touring, they've become more comfortable with one another and it shows on their sophomore release, "History from Below". Featuring drums, guitar, and occasional keys, combined with sometimes gruff vocals (911), and sometimes sweet harmonies (Salt in the Wound, Devil Knows You're Dead), and even a combination of the two (Vivian), this is nicely produced rustic rock.
