SLCene Suggests: Delta Rae at Eccles Center for the Performing Arts

by on February 1, 2013

DELTA RAE, ECCLES CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS, Park City, Saturday, Feb. 2, 7:30 p.m., $20-$67

North Carolina’s Delta Rae is based around the kind of mesmerizing vocal harmonies that only seem to come through family ties–think the Beach Boys. Except in this case, you have the boy-girl harmonies of Ian, Eric and Brittany Holljes, along with childhood friend Elizabeth Hopkins and a rhythm section that joined in 2010–altogether, Delta Rae delivers more of a countrified Fleetwood Mac vibe, with touches of blues and soul in the mix. They’re slick; anyone who is more a fan of gritty Americana might find them a little too slick. But fans of mainstream country acts like Lady Antebellum will find plenty to love in Delta Rae’s songs. And if you need any hipster cred to decide to go–Delta Rae was landed by Warner Bros. exec Seymour Stein–the man who signed Talking Heads and Madonna way back when.
