Delta Moon Live! Sat., Aug. 20, 8 pm
Delta Moon is a roots rock quartet from Atlanta featuring the unique double-slide guitars of Tom Gray on lap steel and Mark Johnson on bottleneck slide.
Their sound is solidly based in American roots and blues music, but they always manage to add their own twist.
Lead singer Tom Gray is well known to the music industry as a superb songwriter (he penned the hit “Money Changes Everything” recorded by Cyndi Lauper. With seven studio albums and three live CDs to their credit, Delta Moon tours extensively in North America and Europe.
The band’s latest album, Low Down, is a rocking set of 12 songs, including nine originals by Gray, the Roots Music Association’s 2008 Blues Songwriter of the Year, and covers penned by Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Skip James. Net Rhythms (UK) has called Delta Moon’s signature sound, “Music as it should be – raw and honest.”
The band calls it a voice, a groove and two slide guitar. Click HERE for a preview!
