Delta Spirit

Pitching its style between indie rock and alt-country, Delta Spirit features bassist Jon Jameson, drummer Brandon Young, vocalist Matthew Vasquez, multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Kelly Winrich, and guitarist Will McLaren. The band began when Jameson and Young's former band, the San Diego-based emo outfit Noise Ratchet, called it quits in 2004. Seeking a rootsy sound, the pair joined forces with Vasquez, Winrich, and founding guitarist Sean Walker. In 2006, the band issued their debut EP, I Think I've Found It, and hit the road alongside Cold War Kids and Dr. Dog. The following year, they self-released their first full-length Ode to Sunshine; after Delta Spirit signed to Rounder Records, the label reissued a remastered version of the album in 2008.

Earning acclaim for their recordings as well as their live show, the band began recording songs for its second album at Prairie Sun Studios in 2009. The finished product, History from Below, was released in June 2010. Just before Delta Spirit's self-titled third album arrived in 2012, Walker left and McLaren joined C.O.C.; soon after, they moved from Long Beach, California to Brooklyn, New York. In 2013, the group contributed an exclusive new song, "Running," to the soundtrack of the AMC show The Walking Dead.

Delta Spirit returned in 2014 with Into the Wide, a darker, heavier set of songs written and recorded in the practice space they'd rebuilt near an Atlanta shipping yard after Hurricane Sandy's devastation. It was recorded with producer Ben Allen (who has also worked with Animal Collective and Deerhunter). It became their most successful album yet, both commercially and critically, and Vasquez also began recording solo singles and EPs, culminating in the 2016 album Solicitor Returns. ~ Andrew Leahey

This band came to Honolulu to headline Hallowballoo , a Halloween festival/str e e t party. When an overly cautious tsunami warning and downtown evacuation canceled their show, they played for FREE the very next night in a local club. It was a very cool thing to do. They rock!

These guys played a fantastic set at Maha Music Festival this past weekend.

The bio is not entirely accurate -- Will has been with them for a year at least, not as recent an addition as it's being made to seem here.

So them this weekend in Chicago. Great live show. They play the heXX out of their instruments. I with their album reflected that energy a little more. Live album would be a great addition to what they are doing. Matt came down after the show to take pics with fans and thanked everyone he could for coming to the show, real eye-opener on how much it personally means to them. I wish I had that kind of energy and love for anything. Made me want to pick up my guitar and form a band.

I went to watch The Shins in Seattle, and came out completely falling in love with every facet of this band. They are completely unique and worth a listen ... or 12.

definitely a great band and an awesome album. My roommate and saw them at the beach to brewery bike festival at the karl strauss brewery in san diego and they were great. Listened to there cd about 10 times on a cross country drive recently. Good stuffin!!

I just saw them live last night at WWU in Bellingham and it was absolutely amazing. Matthew was red in the face at some points because he was singing so hard and they often had two people playing precussion which produced a beautiful sound. The bassist Jon was definitely my favorite to watch live though. They opened for the Shins (favorite band of all time).
