I grew up in a one parent household in Northern California. Dad decided to move to the other side of country once my parents split up and mom achieved the near impossible, working more than full time while doing a fantastic job raising all three of us on her own. One spring a few years after my parents divorced, my mom said to us matter of factly “Kids, you’re going to spend summer break with your father.” It was our first full on, East Coast, long, hot summer, with muggy days, warm nights, fireflies, running in the sprinkler for hours, whiling away the afternoon on the swing set while eating Flintstones push-up popsicles. It felt like each day lasted a week and it’s still the source of some of the most fun memories of my childhood. That was the year I fell desperately in love with summertime. “Never Coming Back” instantly transports me to that moment. I hear the opening lines and I’m 8 years old again, it’s Independence Day. My brothers and I are walking with my dad, his girlfriend, her daughter, and other neighbors to a big hilly field so we can watch the fireworks. It was our famous summer. My brothers and I still smile and tell each other stories about it, even though it isn’t representative of most of our relationship with dad. It was the only time in life we can remember where we spent more than a weekend with him. “Never Coming Back” is a sad song, there’s no way around it. So are most of the memories I have connected to my dad. But there is some sweetness wrapped up somewhere in there too. Sitting in his lap looking up at the bright explosions of color — wishing it could last for more than a summer, knowing it wouldn’t. The sparks and the shadows. The light and the dark. Love, Liz This is “Never Coming Back” from the Spark & Shadow Sessions.

Sometime around 2014, with the band having had a great year prior, recently getting married, and feeling like things were settling into a happy, successful time for my family and Delta Rae, I wanted to write something that took a moment to celebrate. That song became Any Better Than This. Its lyrics contain the joys of young love and excitement of spending a good season in life with the people you value most. Given the miraculous kindness and generosity you all have shown us recently in supporting our move to independence and launching a whole new era of Delta Rae, it seems like another time worth celebrating. Thank you all so much. -Ian This is “Any Better Than This” from The Spark & Shadow Sessions.

For all of those who’ve waited for the darkness to come, it’s here now. I first heard “Come Back Alive” in Eric’s house with my bare feet on two hundred year old knotted planks and hand hammered nails. My only accompaniment was the band standing in a circle, clapping in 5/4. It felt like a summoning. I felt the wailing mother, I felt the fear and the anguish. I felt rage at the world. The emotion of the song came to me from under my feet and through my gut. It came as a warning and as a knowing. I still feel it every time. The allegory is too real. When there is no safe place for children, we have reached our souls’ blackest night. And even if the children come back alive, what toll did The Shadow exact on their spirits? On all our spirits? I love to bring this song to life because I believe in the power of a story. Maybe this story is scary enough to wake us up. Even from dead in our sleep at witching hour. With all my heart, Brittany This is “Come Back Alive” from the Spark and Shadow Sessions.

Outtakes from Open Water “video shoot.” 😂 Much like this video, our attempts to help protect the planet won’t always be perfect, but it’s a cause worth every effort! Thanks Open Water for creating an alternative to plastic water bottles. Watch til the end. Trust us, it’s great. Even for us. For us. For us. For us....For us.

I’ve been longing to release this song since I began writing it over four years ago. It's one of the few songs that arrived in one fell swoop as I was battling a night of depression alone in my apartment in North Carolina in 2015. I often turn to songwriting when I feel myself touch down at a low-point in my life. And I didn't want to be burdened with my limitations on the piano or guitar. So I started clapping. Then I started singing. And as this melody dawned for the first time, I felt a swell of excitement that lifted me, and my melancholy transformed to a light-hearted joy. Singing songs like these, with this band are why I'm here. Now I can't wait for you to hear verse 2 and the french horn in the album version. Thanks for the heartfelt reactions to “Take Me There” and “Shadows of Vegas” and thank you for giving us a chance to record this music as an independent band. We have two weeks left in our Kickstarter Campaign which means only 14 days to get the word out and invite people to pre-order these albums. We'd be so grateful if you would share. - Eric This is "No One Will Miss Me" from The Spark & Shadow Sessions.

SHADOWS OF VEGAS Drive all night through a sleepless desert Neon lights like a northern star I could ride these roads forever Babe we’re never gonna get that far Cause the odds are stacked in their favor We’re just working for a rich man’s crumbs Get so far into the darkness Forget where you’re coming from And we’re standing in the shadows of Vegas Yes we’re dancing at the edges of the city of sin Everyday we try to play the hand we’re given But the house always wins The Spark & Shadow Sessions. For the next two weeks we will reveal some of the songs you can expect to hear on our forthcoming albums, The Light and The Dark. We hope you’ll cast this shadow toward fellow fans, friends and family, to give them a hint of what’s to come. A spark ignites tomorrow... This is “Shadows of Vegas” from The Spark and Shadow Sessions.

The Spark & Shadow Sessions. For the next two weeks we will reveal some of the songs you can expect to hear on our forthcoming albums, The Light and The Dark. While the band was together in Nashville we took a few days for a secret project, capturing acoustic recordings and videos from the family home of our beloved Gideon Klein to give to you all. This is our first single from The Light, it’s the song that’s lead the way this year, as the name of one of the most fun tours we’ve played in our entire career and also because a month ago we asked all our amazing Kickstarter backers to help us reach a goal and y’all TOOK US THERE! We hope you’ll share this spark with fellow fans, friends and family, to give them a hint of what’s to come. A shadow haunts tomorrow... This is “Take Me There” from The Spark and Shadow Sessions.

We promised our amazing Kickstarter supporters we would kickstart it forward by GOING GREEN! The beauty of the natural world inspires a lot of Delta Rae’s music, and we believe it’s vital to heal and protect our planet by making more sustainable choices and supporting earth friendly companies. That’s why we’re replacing our single use plastic water bottles with sustainable Open Water in 100% renewable aluminum bottles! We are so excited to share this company with y’all. If you have an event coming up that requires water bottles, or if you’re touring musicians like us who’ve gotta stay hydrated on the road, choose Open Water 💙#byebyeplastic

A snippet of Lead Me Home, backing Jamey Johnson. It’s a song we’re forever grateful to know. We were honored to get to sing it with these magic makers.
Delta Rae Aug 12, 2019
He may come off as an ass-kicking God of Thunder, but he’ll write a song to make you weep. Roar like a lion and then ease you into a lullaby. The mythic Jamey Johnson, his wickedly talented band, and his hardworking crew made us feel like family this weekend, and his fans welcomed us too. We are so thankful for the past three days.

We wouldn’t be a band without you, Adam aka Atay. Repost from @wadamt: 8/10/2011 — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I met this band 8 years ago. Delta Rae became my favorite band out of the hundreds of shows I had worked up to then. Here they are listening back to the show I had just mixed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A year later they asked me to go out on tour. They have fulfilled my dream of traveling the world and working for music I love. It’s been the best years of my life. Thank you, Delta Rae. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They’re my family. I’m proud of them. #deltarae @ The Plaza Live

Gilroy. El Paso. Dayton. Our hearts are with you. Our sadness and anger are deepened with every mass shooting and the subsequent inaction of our elected officials. Those killed and grieving are to be honored and held in reverent space. But the policies that allow for such mass death to be commonplace and hateful ideologies that fuel genocide in America should be met with swift, scourging change and evolution. The shooting in El Paso was not a random, senseless, lone wolf crime. It was motivated by a collective and growing force of white supremacists and racist xenophobes and made possible by the gun lobby and bought-and-payed-for politicians. Our diverse points of view and upbringings are being exploited to keep those in power there and the rest of us in conflict, distracted and terrorized. These are political issues only in the sense that we MUST elect better leaders who make better policies. This is life or death, not right or left. Individuals and representatives, we CAN put country above party and find a better way. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. Universal background checks, assault style weapons ban, close the gun show loopholes, and affordable accessible mental healthcare for all. Write. Call. Vote. Video: Nate C. Concerts via YouTube

A sister is a champion. A sister tells you the truth. A sister is a soft place to land and a fierce ally. A sister sits with you in silence, grieves with you, laughs at jokes told through eyes, hugs you even when they’re mad because they know you’re hurting too. Sisterhood is empathy and patience and holds space. It’s a lot. Or sometimes it’s broken and that’s ok. Because sisterhood is NOT defined by blood relation or being “female,” it’s a voluntary bond across the spectrum. So we shout it out today, but it’s more of a forever thing 💞 #NationalSisterDay #standbesideyoursisters #defendyoursisters #sistersnotcisters

This is our final in the Shots Behind The Shot series for Do You Ever Dream. Thank you for taking a moment to witness the blood, sweat, and tears poured into this video. Despite being signed at the time, we created, funded, and filmed it on our own. It was scary on a number of levels, and even though we don’t own the final product anymore, we have no regrets about following inspiration when it struck. From this point forward: Everything we create, we own. Thank you for dreaming with us. If you’d like to be a part of our next chapter as an independent band and help us make more music videos please check out our link in the comments 💙

The Shots Behind The Shot. Sometimes, you just get lucky. A big part of the inspiration for the “Do You Ever Dream?” video came from the landscapes of Iceland. When our director Law found cheap tickets, we plotted the shots, booked the most affordable Airbnb’s along our route, and two weeks later we were there capturing our vision. Ellen was our host one night. She stayed up until 2am to receive us, as all the roads on our way to her place were closed. We had seen horses in her pictures so we hoped they might make it into the video, we had no idea that Ellen had in fact been a horse trainer in the states before moving back to Iceland. She was the kindest, most helpful friend we made in our travels. And the moment felt as surreal behind the scenes as it does in the finished piece. Meant to be.
Delta Rae Jul 24, 2019
The Shots Behind The Shot. We made “Do You Ever Dream?” with the help of amazing friends and family. Our director, LAW — who also directed Bottom of the River — donated his time, our childhood friend Mark flew in last minute to play our dreamless dude, and Grant’s cousin offered the use of his house as a make shift green screen studio. With no budget we had to get creative with this shot, but thanks to Eric’s editing skills, the stunts did not involve actually falling off a cliff. Delta Rae’s motto: “Even though whatever we’re doing is crazy, it’s really f*cking fun.”
Delta Rae Jul 22, 2019
Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a Delta Rae music video? We want to make so many more of these. And now thanks to you we can. The more we raise on Kickstarter, the more music videos we can make. Do you ever dream?
Delta Rae Jul 21, 2019
Over $270,000. Over 2100 backers. And the Kickstarter has been live for less than 3 weeks. Ian came to Nashville today. He and Eric have begun work on the pie in the sky pipe dream we never let ourselves believe was possible. But your belief in us in magic. Your flame lights the ones within us. We’re about to share all our wildest dreams with you. Thank you all so much. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deltarae/the-light-and-the-dark-delta-raes-first-independent-release
