I sat in a creaky pew last night drinking herbal tea, and listening to Delta Maid. If you get a chance to see her live, don’t be fooled by the over-produced and sweetened plinky-plonk of her recordings, and do it. She’s a natural performer with a big fierce voice and a brilliantly rhythmic and percussive guitar style, and it is so refreshing to see a woman get on a stage in jeans and a shirt and just fill the room with big bold unforgiving waves of sound, and never once simper or bat eyelashes. Glorious.
Her album Outside Looking In is out on May the 9th, but comparing what’s on her myspace to live experience, a person might be better off getting to a gig.
