We’re delighted to welcome The Delines to Ramsgate on October 31st for an evening of sublime country soul!
The band features vocalist Amy Boone and novelist Willy Vlautin (formerly of Richmond Fontaine). An astonishing line-up of talent – we cannot wait.
“Owes something to the classic sounds of Kristofferson, Gentry, Chips Moman/Dan Penn and Glen Campbell, but there’s no throwback nostalgia here. The Delines’ way with romance is all their own” – UNCUT
The Delines are led by vocalist Amy Boone (The Damnations TX), with keyboardist and trumpeter Cory Gray, drummer Sean Oldham, bassist Freddie Trujillo, and guitarist and songwriter, Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine).
Vlautin is no stranger to critical acclaim in the US, UK, and Europe, enjoying cult success and rave reviews from the likes of the New York Times, Uncut, Hot Press, Rolling Stone and Mojo Magazine, both as a novelist with six books under his belt, and as the former front man of alt-country outfit Richmond Fontaine.
The Delines debut record, ‘COLFAX’, appeared in 2014 and surprised fans and critics alike. Evoking a beat-up Dusty Springfield or a weary Rickie Lee Jones, ‘COLFAX’ made over a dozen top ten lists. It was a four-year wait until their sophomore effort, ‘THE IMPERIAL’ was released. Amy spent much of that time in hospital beds recovering from serious injuries sustained in an accident in Austin, Texas. When she was just strong enough to stand she finished ‘THE IMPERIAL’, a record that spent two weeks on top of the UK charts with the band playing sold out shows across the UK and Europe.
“An intoxicating piece of work from The Delines; if it were a film, Fritz Lang would have been the director” – Folk Radio
“Wonderfully immersive stuff” – MOJO
“The perfect marriage of music, melody and the art of immersing the listener in a song. The Sea Drift is yet another utterly compelling chapter in The Delines’ ever-growing songbook” – Post to Wire
