SoCal Sound: Delta Spirit
Delta Spirit are showmen, plain and simple. They've mastered the art of the catchy rock song, blending smooth guitar sounds, poppy, but not over the top vocals, with odd, but steady percussion, but all with a style truly unmatched.
Hailing from America's Finest City, San Diego, CA, Delta Spirit were birthed in 2005. After releasing their first EP, they began touring with Cold War Kids, Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah!, and Dr. Dog. The band went on to record their first album in a cabin in the mountains of San Diego. Their sound evolved into something very unique; using trashcans and other random objects as his drumset, percussionist Brandon Young got really create, helping Delta Spirit get noticed. They now have a second album, and even played Lollapalooza this year.
Delta Spirit's live shows are electric and energetic, with never a dull moment in the set. After gaining notoriety and radio success, the band has toured internationally, and is about to embark on a tour of Australia.
