Hailing from Philadelphia, Mississippi, The Delta Get Down bring their own brand of blues-rich rock 'n' roll to the stage. Their sound is a hot, smoky, dimly lit juke joint--gritty songs inspired by the legends of Delta Blues. "Sharp As A Razor" (found on every major streaming service) features the soulful harmonica and slide cigarbox guitar of Hunter Gibson. The band's near-complete studio recordings and live shows bring to the forefront co-founding member Phillip Savell's dirty-as-it-gets lead and rhythm guitar. Bassist Quintavious Mason (The North Mississippi All Stars) and blues staple Trez Johnson on drums lay down the foundation.
While "Sharp As A Razor" is laid over a drum loop and polished enough to serve as a backdrop for a Hollywood feature, The Delta Get Down are true-to-form organic old time soulful rock. Their soon-to-be-released work brings to the mix more of an Allman/jam feel. You might hear some Howlin' or some even some Cream, but what you get from a set by The Delta Get Down is honest, kick ass, original music.
The Delta Get Down have some big projects in the works: an album currently being mixed and mastered and a two festival appearances this summer: the 51st Annual Bentonia Blues Festival in Bentonia, Mississippi as well as a road trip to Sedalia, Missouri this July for the 49th Anniversary Ozark Music Festival.
