ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With all the popularity and interest there is today in what is referred to as “New Country”, what would possess four seasoned musicians to go entirely the other direction?

Call it integrity, going against the grain, being niche-y, whatever. Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys march to the country shuffle of a bygone era; before country was on FM radio, before country artists had personal trainers, and most certainly, before country sounded like rock and roll with fiddle.

Mixing self penned songs with old country hits (and unknown gems) by such artists as Hank Williams and Patsy Cline to name a few, Delilah and the Lost Boys come out on stage looking and sounding like a 45 year step back in time. Dressed to the nines in the tradition of pre-color television country singers and musicians, donning matching western suits and playing the finest vintage musical instruments in the finest old school way.

The leader of the band of course is Delilah, playing upright bass and singing lead. A veteran of the Michigan music scene for over 15 years and an alumnus of rockabilly institution DangerVille, is also a holder of the secret of standing on the bass while she plays it. Don’t ask her how it’s done, as it’s a secret.

Lee Harvey is featured on lead guitar. His serious demeanor onstage is not lament for Miss Delilah as much as it is reverence for the precision of his own technique. A whole lotta pickin’, not a lot of grinnin’.

On the drums we have D.J. McCoy, not of Hatfield and McCoy fame, but country nonetheless. D.J. is a veteran drummer with countless bands over the past 20 plus years from all across Michigan. Any drummers who see our lad D.J. in action more than once will note that he has a different vintage drum set virtually each time he plays. May be compensation for loneliness…

World-class musician Drew Howard (Capt Midnite) is behind the steel and some of the vocals as well. The Capt is famous for his one-liners as well as his diverse musical tricks. Feast your eyes on that vintage steel guitar! See more cool Capt stuff at www.drewhoward.com

Joe Wilson is another top notch musician featured on the new album. Not only is he a fabulous lap steep player, he's a mean horn player too. Joe slides in some muted trombone on "Texas in my Soul". Try and not smile when you hear THAT! Joe currently lives in Traverse City, Michigan, and you can also find him playing with Steppin' in It. www.steppininit.com

Mark Schrock is another veteran player in the Midwest scene. He's featured here playing fiddle, but you can find Mark all over the stage of Michigan playing bass, guitar, mandolin, and lending vocals to many bands such as Jive at Five, Schrock Brothers, Lost Boys, and a lot of bands that come through his excellent venue called Salt of the Earth in Fennville, MI. www.saltoftheearthfennville.com

Roger Brown is another friend who lent his talents to this latest album. He was the co-writer of "Just for the Hank of it" and is also featured on two tracks playing some excellent fingerpicking acoustic guitar.

The band began in the spring (one sunny day) in 2005 and had rather immediate and surprising success. Surprising because they weren’t entirely convinced that Michigan was interested, or ready, to embrace four western clad thirty-somethings playing music that has no presence on modern radio or television. But that was precisely the reason the crowds came. You can’t get music like this on radio or television anymore. They found out that neighboring states felt the same way as well.
As things have progressed, they have gotten sharper, tighter, and their repertoire has expanded, but they have been diligent in keeping their sound the same, as they believe their original concept is a good one and one not to stray from. And besides, there are plenty of New Country acts out there.
