New Orleans is more than gumbo, Mardi Gras, the French quarter, and drive
through margarita bars. The heartbeat of the city has always been music. Music
represents so much in the “big easy,” especially when it incorporates the melting
pot of French, African and American cultures as New Orleans bred band Water
Seed has. As drummer and bandleader Lou Hill said to Gambit Weekly, “There’s
no place like New Orleans to play music.”
As a Thank You to the city that helped raised them, Water Seed is releasing their
second – and first live – album, SAY YEAH!!! LIVE AT THE BLUE NILE out
June 1 on Water Seed Music. “After touring from coast to coast we wanted to
give our fans a special treat, a live album. Once the decision was made it was a
no brainer, we had to record in New Orleans,” explained Lou. Joined by vocalist
Berkley the Artist, pianist J Sharp, flautist Cinese and vocalist Shaleyah, Water
Seed has been at the forefront of the New Orleans music scene with a rapidly
growing fanbase worldwide with their relentless touring schedule.
Rising Appalachia brings to the stage a collection of sounds, stories, and songs steeped in tradition and a devotion to world culture. Intertwining a deep reverence for folk music and a passion for justice, they have made it their life’s work to sing songs that speak to something ancient yet surging with relevance. Whether playing at Red Rocks or in rail cars, at Italian street fairs or to Bulgarian herbalists, this fiercely independent band has blazed a unique and colorful path across the globe. 11 years into their movement, Rising Appalachia believes that the roots of all these old songs are vital to our ever evolving soundscape.
Since its formation in 2014, the band has released two critically acclaimed albums, performed at the 2018 New Orleans French Quarter Fest as well as some of New Orleans’ most iconic venues, and maintained a national tour schedule averaging 150 dates/year.
Propelled by a the frenetic performances and memorable songwriting of band leader Andrew T. Weekes and drummer Ciaran Brennan, Deltaphonic has cultivated a distinct sound that veteran music critic Robert Fontenot described this way: “If you opened a lounge outdoors in a graveyard next to a swamp, this would be the only album you’d need on the jukebox … NOLA finally has an answer for the Black Keys and the White Stripes—dark Americana with history’s dust shaken off.”
Though primarily touring as a duo, Deltaphonic consistently features a variety of notable guest musicians with Weekes being the only member present at every show. Past guests include Khris Royal (KRDM, George Porter & The Runnin Pardners, Rebelution), Paul Provosty (Earphunk), Ed Williams (The Revivalists), Eric “Benny” Bloom (Lettuce, Pretty Lights Live Band), Russell Batiste (The Funky Meters), and many more. The band is currently working on a third album set for release in 2019
