Delta Spirit and Friends Come to Warsaw Tomorrow Night

August 6th, 2015

Charismatic frontman Matt Vasquez (vocals and guitar), Jon Jameson (bass), Brandon Young (drums), Kelly Winrich (keys and vocals) and Will McLaren (guitar) formed the soulful Americana five-piece Delta Spirit (above, performing “From Now On” for KUTX FM) a decade ago in San Diego. They won over fans the old-fashioned way, crisscrossing the country—often with their musical brothers-in-arms Deer Tick and Dawes—and becoming known for arena-ready songs and energetic, leave-it-all-onstage live shows, not to mention their quality discography, which includes four well-received studio full-lengths. The most recent of which, Into the Wide (stream it below), came out last year. Per Consequence of Sound, “They’ve successfully expanded their range without it feeling unnatural. The change is never forced; they just have faith in their intuition. That’s what led them to Brooklyn, which led them to Into the Wide. Wherever those instincts take them next, they should trust it.” And not only do Delta Spirit play Warsaw tomorrow, but they’re also bring some friends with them: MGMT’s James Richardson, Guards’ Loren Humphrey, Cults’ Brian Oblivion, Madeline Follin and Gabe Rodriguez, and Jessica Lea Mayfield.
