Re: “Delta Rae's self-titled debut

Grayson I just listened to Wesley Wolfe's music and it is a few simple chords strummed as a rhythm back ground ton which to sing. Nothing complicated nothing harmonized. Nothing against Wesley and I hope he does very well but this is not a great comparison.
Ashley's review has some points that might be taken as criticism that could be taken with a grain of salt and then used to refine new songs, but what is missing in the write up is the mention of how vibrant is the sound and the passion of this group. I am not a youngster and for me many of the lyrics of young artists could use some refinement as they sometimes lack the depth of perception of life experiences that only come with living on this earth a bit longer. However the viability of Delta Rae's sound is undeniable and at all 4 of the live performances I have gone to the power of this presence just sweeps the audience up into the joy and the passion. When they opened for Edwin McCain at Cats Cradle in Chapel Hill many people in the audiance commented that they sounded more like a headliner act than a warm up for a headliner!
This CD has a very tight and well composed sound, balance and mix. The harmonies are outstanding. So many artists who attempt harmony today are not very skilled at even getting the notes let alone the blend correct. Not a problem with Delta Rae, these kids sound like they have sung together for years and in fact they have sine they were all kids out in California where they performed in an Acapella group called Til Dawn. In accapella singing you have nothing to hide behind and Delta Rae's sound has nothing to hide!
Having sung through out middle and high school and college as a choral performer and with such groups as the National Cathedral Choral Society and for recordings with Promise Keepers Praise and Worship albums I am no stranger to the joy and the art of singing.
Ashley you need to listen to the songs at least a 2nd time.
