Biography

San Diego, California, United States (2005 – present)

Delta Spirit is a band from San Diego, California, United States, beginning in 2005. This band is most known for their intense live performances, their congregational song-writing, and their driving rhythm. The group consists of Jon Jameson (bass), Brandon Young (percussion), Matthew Vasquez (vocals/guitars), Kelly Winrich (multi-instrumentals) and Will McLaren (guitar).

“The raw spirit of indie rock. An amplified, rocking version of ’60s protest folk. The soulful passion of the Violent Femmes and The Waterboys.” All of these comparisons have been made in attempts to describe Delta Spirit, the southern California five-piece who might just be one of the most important new bands of the decade. Each description contains elements of the truth, but the real answer to the question “who is Delta Spirit?” lies within Ode to Sunshine, the band’s captivating debut. The group’s DIY ethic shines throughout the album, with songs honed razor-sharp over a year of non-stop touring across America. Opening sold-out tours for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cold War Kids, and Dr. Dog, the band developed a riveting live show and gained a loyal following amongst tastemaker music fans, earning them invites to national festivals like Austin City Limits, Noise Pop and Sasquatch.

    Delta Spirit aren't upstarts, nor are they technically a California band anymore.

    Would like a return to the Americana sounds too, but the new record is pretty quality and it does sound massive. Think I like it better than the S/T.

    I'm a little disappointed they continued down the LA rock/pop path like their previous album instead of returning to a more Americana sound like their first two, but I feel like they have a much better grip to this approach in this effort compared their s/t.

    I just moved to California a few weeks ago and have been listening to the lyrics for California for months before then! It fits my situation so well.
