Über Delta Spirit
Delta Spirit combine an enchanting array of Brit pop, pub rock and bluesy Americana. With influences that run from the Beatles and Bob Dylan to the Strokes and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, the San Diego quintet plays rowdy romps alongside acoustic lullabies, piano ballads and rootsy, harmonica-driven melodies. Bassist Jon Jameson and drummer Brandon Young played together in the emo band Noise Ratchet before joining forces with vocalist Matthew Vasquez, guitarist Sean Walker and multi-instrumentalist Kelly Winrich to form Delta Spirit in 2005. After obtaining a significant underground following while touring with like-minded indie rockers Dr. Dog, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Cold War Kids, Delta Spirit opted to self-release their debut, Ode to Sunshine, in 2007; it would be re-released in 2008 by Rounder Records.
