Robust harmonies wrapped around carefree, yet thoughtful, lyrics shine throughout A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE EP from Delta Rae, available digitally NOW. The six-piece outfit of musicians recorded four tracks, including the title track lead single, with producer Dann Huff. Serving as their first release on The Valory Music Co., the Durham, NC band is comprised of the Hölljes’ siblings Brittany (lead vocals), Eric (vocals, piano) and Ian (vocals, guitar) alongside Liz Hopkins (lead vocals, tambourine, auxiliary percussion) with Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass).
