The Delta Twins w/ Anthony Retka and Emily Rose – March 25
Delta Twins is a four-man blues/rock/soul band that is known around southeast Michigan for their soulful vocals, passionate guitar solos, and poignant original lyrics that explore and celebrate the human condition. Songs like “Work My Blues Away” and “Workingman” pay homage to the hard-working blue collar ethic for which Detroit is known. “Stirring Up The Muddy Waters” melds blues, rock, and jazz into a tantalizing stew, while “Fool For You” will leave you breathless.
Though Delta Twins’ sound is larger than just the blues genre, they have been a finalist in the Detroit Blues Challenge, as well as a nominee for Outstanding Blues Artist in the Detroit Music Awards. Several of their songs have also won songwriting competitions.
Lead singer Bob Young “digs deep and lets lyrics fly with a salt of the Earth gusto that is as true as the music he’s playing.” (Heath Andrews, album review). He also handles keys and occasionally wails on harmonica. His “twin brother of another mother” Tom Kozanecki provides a steady rhythmic anchor as he locks in on bass with rock-solid drummer Doug Austin. Veteran guitarist Terry Birkett brings both the tasteful ambiance and the scorching fire.
Delta Twins is currently working on their fifth album. Their most recent album – Nothing Left But Hope – had a funkier rock edge to it, while The Seasons & The Scars (recorded live at the Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit) has more of a Blues/Americana feel.
No stranger to Trinity House (this will be their fifth time), Delta Twins will take you on a wild musical journey and bring you back home safely… but different… better.
