"This is American roots music, and it’s blues, boogie, jazz, swing, stride, rock and roll, rhythm and blues, gospel, all those things." - "Boogie" Bob Baldori
The Delta Saints are a band with a big, eclectic sound that encompasses past, present, and future. They’re sonically rich but not dense, rooted in the roots but not cliched, and darkly bluesy without being overwrought.
"Willie Mae" features the rich Mississippi vocals and guitar of Bill "Howl-N-Madd" Perry supported by Corritore's playful harmonica dance and the nimble drumming of Malachi Johnson.
'Please Don’t Be Dead' works because it sounds so natural. Every song sounds just how it should be...
"The lyrics to 'Turn Your Money Green' were the main thing that drew me to this song. They are particularly witty and visual, so I wanted to match them with an equally up-tempo and joyful sounding musical arrangement on the lap steel."
"It seemed like everything, from guitar parts, bass, percussion, solos, just played themselves. When it was over I was dizzy and could barely walk out of the studio."
