Meet Our SXSW W Hotel Artists: Delta Rae
Posted 2/26/2013 12:12:00 PM

Maybe you caught this gospel-tinged folk rock group opening our 22nd Anniversary Party back in December. They made a lot of fans that night and we suspect they'll even make more when they kick off our live SXSW broadcasts from the W Austin Hotel Wednesday morning at 6am.

Hailing from Durham, NC; half of this band are siblings Brittany, Ian, and Eric Hölljes - which may explain why their tight harmonies sound so delicious. Rounded out by vocalist Elizabeth Hopkins, bassist Grant Emerson, and drummer Mike McKee, this six-piece released their debut album Carry the Fire in June.

A friend of mine actually brought them to my attention shortly before that thanks to their chilling introductory single, "Bottom of the River:"
