Black River Delta

BLACK RIVER DELTA

Raw and bluesy.

That's the sound of Black River Delta. Three friends from the northern parts of Sweden packed their guitars and moved down to the south. With inspiration from early blues like Robert Johnson, the raw style of R.L. Burnside and the modern sound of Gary Clark Jr, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Dead Weather, they locked themselves into a studio.

The ninth of May 2015 their debut single Follow You Down was released. A series of gigs followed in Denmark, Sweden and Canada. With new material in mind the boys packed their stuff and headed homeward to their northern forest. After spending weeks in an old wooden cabin, recording everything themselves, an album was created.

Devil on the loose, an 8 track album, was released March 4, 2016. The sound is dirty, the riffs are raw, and the lyrics are naked and honest.

For the first time ever Sweden has a band true to the name of blues, performed by three persons seemingly possessed by the souls of rock stars long gone.
