Warm Thoughts.

We, like most of you have been inspired by the recent apocalyptic weather to focus on the things that can be enjoyed inside. Things such as sleeping, snuggling (mostly between David and Ben Azzi), movie watching, and a bit of song-writing. We are very pleased to announce that we have taken the first big step in the journey to a new recorded product. We are honored to be working with J. Hall, who will be producing the new recordings and helping us steer this awkward ship to what we hope will be a partly sunny horizon. We still aren't exactly sure what the final product will actually be, so as not to jump the gun and use the terms EP, full-length, multiple disc youtube anime soundtrack, etc... What we do know, is that we are beginning preproduction and are all really excited about the next 6-8 months.
We are also beginning to plan our shenanigan filled show for April/May. We are wanting to throw a big party/release show for the DVD footage that we took back in September. There are talks of pressing a limited number of DVDs and figuring out something for the online enthusiasts. Anyways, we'll be getting back to you with more info as it becomes available. We are also competing in a couple of different local music competitions over the next few months. We've been selected along with 32 other bands to compete in Lightning 100's "Music City Mayhem" campaign. Each weekday, 2 local artists face off throughout the day to see which can get the most votes and support. The winner of each day moves on the next round until there is an overall winner. Our day is March 2nd, 2010 and we'll be matched up against the incredibly talented Zut Alors. On the 2nd, go to ( and vote for our track (Train Song) to move to the next round. We are also privileged and pleased to announce that we will be competing in this years "Road to Bonnoroo" contest. Our day is May 17th, so if you're free, 21 and older, and feel so inclined, come out to the Mercy Lounge and help us get out to that "field of dreams and other hallucinated journeys" in June.
We hope that this post finds each and every one of you happy, healthy, and warm. Much love,

The Thank You Speech That Should Have Been..

I just reviewed the couple of posts that we've got on here and I apologize if their seems to be a frequently reoccurring theme... But to add to a possibly over-beaten drum, we just want to say thank you to everyone who came out and showed their support at the Rock Showcase tonight. It has been a dream to win a showcase for each and every one of us, and to be a part of tonight and to be chosen as the winner is an incredible and humbling experience. As always, there is bittersweet feelings involved, as the other 3 bands that we had the honor of sharing the stage with are incredible and each deserved to win. Daniel Berrios is a really great songwriter, and has one hell of a stage presence. In the 2+ years that I have watched Danny, he has never ceased to impress me ( Eikon is one of the great fresh new bands that I have come across. Tonight was my first time hearing their music, and I as well as many of the people who I have talked too, was blown away. They are an awesome mix of Muse like melodies and a writing style that is faintly Radiohead-esque ( And finally, John Flanagan.. I've never heard a voice like this guy's got. Him and his band were tight, his voice was on, and his performance was captivating. To top it off, he's one of the nicest, most humble guys that you will ever meet ( We are humbled and thrilled to have shared the stage with such incredible friends and performers.
The crew of the Rock Showcase this year were second to none. Jessica Wardwell, Lindsey Woodward, and Philip Hagood put together the smoothest, best sounding, and most fun showcase that I have ever been a part of. And did all of this with class and professionalism. The crew was gracious, constantly helpful, and on top of their game. It's the crew and producers that deserve the credit for tonight, as they are the ones who made this possible.
I hope that this makes up for our lack of thank you speech. In the heat of the moment and with the feeling of being completely overwhelmed with gratitude, I'm not sure that what we had to say would have been coherent. Thank you so much for all of the support and love. It is truly overwhelming , and we are incredibly grateful. We look forward to partying with you all very soon.

Much Love,
The Delta Saints
