Country-soul group The Delines are the result of the musical collaboration and friendship of Willy Vlautin and Amy Boone.
Former frontman of alt-country pioneers Richmond Fontaine, Willy is also an acclaimed novelist whose books have been made into acclaimed feature films (The Motel Life and Lean on Pete). It’s this character-driven and visually evocative and mood that sets the tone of the music.
Their recently released third studio album, The Sea Drift (Decor Records) received widespread critical acclaim and they join us having completed a run of sold-out show across Europe.
The cinematic feel of the album is bolstered by the rich, warm instrumentation throughout. Cory Gray’s keyboard, string, and horn arrangements serve as central musical motifs, over soul bass supremo Freddy Trujillo and jazz drummer Sean Oldham’s rhythm section.
“Wonderfully immersive stuff…”
