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.”
Sawyer is a Nashville based duo comprised of Kel Taylor and Emma Harvey that can be described in no other way than “Indie Sparkle Pop.” With comparisons to Lucy Rose, COIN, and HAIM they have built a resonance that can’t be forgotten. Indie Shuffle has described their music as “impeccably crafted” and The Wild Honey Pie has proclaimed, “Sawyer promises to be a part of the next wave." Since their official formation in 2014 the two girls have amassed their vastly growing fan base for being quite “normal.” Even in their normalcy, the Harvard Crimson has deemed them as "airy, nuanced, and utterly aflame." Their down to earth identities and endearing reliability is seen through every post, tweet, and musical note. The Nashville Scene has praised them saying their, “straightforward lyrics and charming guitar riffs put Sawyer in the same class as [your] favorite indie-pop aficionados The Staves.” With over 130 shows under their belt, 2.2 Million streams on Spotify, and multiple sold out shows in the Pacific Northwest they’re just at the beginning of their fandom. Emma Harvey and Kel Taylor are relatable rock stars ready to show the world the magic of Indie Sparkle Pop.
