Introducing… Delta Maid

Signed to Geffen/Future Records this 25 year old Liverpudlian is a self taught guitarist who as a child became strongly influenced by American roots music. She is a delightful and unique singer songwriter who’s languid southern melodies will transport you to far and beyond the Mississippi Delta

Delta releases her debut single, the country-fried hip shaker ‘Of My Own’ on May 1st . The album, ‘Outside Looking In’ takes its cue from Rory Block and Bessie Smith and is set for release on May 8th.

‘Outside Looking In’ features the sultry, laidback swing of ‘Running On Empty’ and sunshine shot of ‘Spend A Little Time’ while ‘The Changes Made’ is an album highlight, a tender acoustic ballad worthy of Dolly Parton, laced intricately with Delta’s pure mountain vocal.

Breaking More Waves Blog said “The Changes Made by Delta Maid… It’s a beautiful, humble sounding piece of work, fashioned from soft acoustic guitar and the sweetest of voices that owes great debt to American country and blues music. Listen for just a few seconds and you can hear tones of Jewel and Stevie Nicks, even though Delta Maid is from Liverpool, UK.”

 

Daily Telegraph “Other unhyped and almost fantastically unfashionable new artists worth keeping an ear out for include Delta Maid, a Liverpool beauty who looks like a Wag and sounds like Patsy Cline, and gloomily poetic art-rockers Chapel Club.”
Delta has just finished a huge UK tour supporting Seth Lakeman and has gigged with Ray LaMontagne, Ellie Goulding and Martha Wainwright.
