Delta Rae
Delta Rae are Brittany Hölljes, Ian Hölljes, Eric Hölljes, Elizabeth Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson.

Known for their exciting live performances, selling out shows and performing at this years' SXSW, Delta Rae's pure sounds of Americana is what legendary A&R scout Seymore Stein loved about the Durham, North Carolina natives when he signed them to Warner Bros. Records.

"Their music, all original, is a mix of blues, country and gospel with a strong rock and roll influence," said Stein who also helped launched the careers of Ramones, Talking Heads, The Smiths and The Pretenders. "I hate labels, but if forced I would have to call their music 'Original Americana,' not unlike what the English are sending over via Mumford & Sons and others.  I'm very proud to welcome Delta Rae to Sire."

Comprised of siblings Brittany, Ian and Eric Hölljes along with Elizabeth Hopkins, Mike McKee and Grant Emerson, Delta Rae will release their debut album Carry The Fire on June 19th, the same day they plan to have their album release party at the famed Troubadour in Los Angeles.
