The Delgonives

'The Delgonives' love to sound 1960's and 1970's being influenced by 'The Beach Boys', 'Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons', 'The Reflections', 'The Embers', Carolina Beach Music, Northern Soul and Motown. Mainly new songs with the odd cover version, they hope to appeal to a more mature audience who appreciate shorter retro sounding material.

Being based in London, England they have been releasing recordings since 2013 and are currently working on a song called 'Dear Tammi' which is a Motown styled throwback. The groups original material is all written by Hull/England born composer Carl Dixon who has written and co produced material in both Detroit and Philadelphia in the past which featured some members of 'The Funk Brothers' and 'MFSB' on the recordings.

One of The Delgonives significant releases was the 2015 'Loving you always came easy', which was featured on the BBC's 'The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show' that year, a first for a song written, produced and lead vocal sang by Carl. This proves that the notion of UK produced music with a blue eyed soul style can crossover into the soul arena for progressive listeners who can enjoy the past, but consider the newer soul material being released today. Currently The Delgonives are experiencing some US air play on Surf 97.3 (WQFB) Flagler Beach Radio.

'One piece of cake' is the latest release and again, a Detroit styled 60s throwback with no less than eight different mixes. Similarly to other tracks the musicians are contractors from Nashville and Detroit. In to 'Dear Tammi', there is another in the works called 'You ain't changed' for a 2018 release and 'She's always mad about something' which could be available before the end of November 2017.
