smart and assured, a continuation of the bands penchant for blurring the lines between bluegrass, folk, soul, and old-time traditions-The Boston Globe never failing to deliver punch, soul and emotion in equal measure rootsy, prayerful, spiritual almost a statement of purpose and direction-Pop Matters arresting, defiant -NPRSince forming in Boston in 2009, Nashville-based string band Della Mae has established a reputation as a charismatic live act comprised of some of the finest players in bluegrass, Americana and beyond. Originating from different musical backgrounds and states across the US and Canada, each member brings distinct elements that make Della Mae such a beloved band. Together they have a completely original style sensitive yet assertive, intense yet playful, steeped in tradition yet undeniably current. Versatile instrumentalists and vocalists, they draw from a bottomless well of roots influences to create vibrant original music that conveys expansive musical vision. With timeless lyrical truth-telling and an unmistakably contemporary sensibility, they stand alongside such roots-conscious acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff. They were IBMAs Emerging Artists of the Year in 2013, GRAMMY Nominees in 2014 for their debut album on Rounder Records, named among Rolling Stones 10 bands to watch for in 2015, and have since traveled with the US State Department to over 18 countries spreading peace and understanding through music.
