Della Mae

Saturday, May 30, 2015

 In a relatively short period of time, Della Mae has become a sensation in the music world. Born from a yearning for a traditional bluegrass sound in the heart of New England in 2009, the Boston-bred, Nashville-based outfit has established a reputation as a charismatic, hard-touring live act, building a large and enthusiastic fan base through their high-energy live performances at festivals around the country while racking up massive amounts of critical acclaim with its first two albums. Commanding a powerful collective chemistry with vocal, instrumental, and songwriting talent to spare, the combo mines time-honored elements to create music that's unmistakably fresh and contemporary. With a sensitive yet assertive approach that's steeped in tradition yet firmly rooted in the present, the four versatile instrumentalist/vocalists draw from a bottomless well of rootsy influences to create vibrantly original music that conveys the band's expansive musical vision with timeless lyrical truths and an unmistakably contemporary sensibility that places them alongside such roots-conscious young acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.

 Inspired by great American performers and songwriters like Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Jimmy Martin, the Carter Family and Loretta Lynn, Della Mae strives to create music that tells a story while delivering a punch. Though distinctly bluegrass, their unique sound is the culmination of diverse musical backgrounds.
