I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

The Delta Saints Sign With Loud & Proud Records And Release Bones August 7, U.S. & European Tour Dates Announced




NEW YORK, NY (June 9, 2015)Loud & Proud Records today announced the signing of Nashville-based band, The Delta Saints and will release Bones on August 7, 2015, the follow up to 2012’s Death Letter Jubilee that Pop Matters hailed saying the band, “…mix Lynyrd Skynyrd swagger with Kings of Leon angst and a touch of that old-time gospel to create a heady, intoxicating mix.”

Produced, engineered and mixed by Third Man Records alum, Eddie Spear [Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, Neil Young], Nashville’s Sputnik Sound studio provided a ghostly, psychedelic atmosphere for the recording of Bones, yielding a sound uniquely their own. Stripping their roots/blues sound down to its essence, The Delta Saints’ second full-length effort expands on that sound and explores influences such as Jack White, The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses and Led Zeppelin.

“Loud & Proud’s history is rooted in releasing new music from celebrated veteran artists.  But in some instances, such as with The Delta Saints, we can’t resist signing exceptional new talent” said Tom Lipsky, President of Loud & Proud Records. “This band impresses in every way with their original style of songwriting, fantastic individual and collective musicianship and electrifying live performances.  Additionally, they have built a legion of loyal fans from several years of relentless touring across the country as well as from successful touring of international markets on their own.  With their tough work ethic and global solid foundation, The Delta Saints will undoubtedly earn respect and success for years to come, with Loud & Proud as their long time label partner."

Ringel adds, “We are extremely excited to announce our signing with Loud and Proud Records. They are a great company who believes in good music and hard work. We're honored to have them behind the release our new album Bones and can't wait to get this record in your speakers."

The Delta Saints are a global touring band, having spent the last eight years playing the U.S. and Europe averaging about 200 shows per year, organically growing their audience fan by fan, city by city, country by country.  They have made several major festival appearances in the U.S. at Wakarusa (which they played again this year), Summer Camp, Harvest, The Ride, Summerfest and The Simple Man Cruise.  A testament to their mixed appeal, they have opened for such diverse acts as Blackberry Smoke, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Taj Mahal, Dickey Betts and Michael Franti & Spearhead.  Having a large international fan base as well, The Delta Saints have toured Europe a total of six times, selling out countless venues and playing hundreds of shows in Spain, Sweden, France, Switzerland and Germany, as well as several festivals in Holland (Moulin Blues, Ribs and Blues), Belgium (Gevarenwinkel) and Germany (Grolsch Blues Fest).

Loud & Proud Records will release Bones in North America through RED Distribution (a division of Sony Music Entertainment) and earMUSIC will release it in the rest of the world.
