Delta Deep To Release New Album 1/26

Blues-Rock-n-Soul supergroup DELTA DEEP is thrilled to announce the release of their sophomore album East Coast Live through Frontier Records. The group, which made their chart topping debut in 2015 features Phil Collen, lead guitarist of Def Leppard,  Debbi Blackwell-Cook (back-up vocalist for such artists as Michael Buble & Gregory Hines), Robert DeLeo (bassist for Stone Temple Pilots) and Forrest Robinson (drummer for Joe Sample & The Crusaders, India.Arie & TLC).  Listen to the first track, “Bless These Blues,” exclusively premiered today at Elmore Magazine.

The group’s self-titled debut was released in June 2015 entering iTunes Blues charts at #2. DELTA DEEP immediately hit the road performing at festivals and concert venues across the country. Critics lauded the band, with Elmore Magazine declaring, “Delta Deep is a rocking force due to bring down any house– historical or modern.”  While San Francisco’s BAM Magazine said, “the live experience for Delta Deep is one not to be missed…Debbi Blackwell-Cook is mesmerizing!”


The group originally came together when Collen was jamming at home with his wife’s godmother, Debbi Blackwell-Cook. What started as a casual pairing, singing Motown favorites and classic blues when Debbi visited, quickly turned into much more.  Along with Collen’s wife Helen, the three began writing original music together. Eventually Collen and Blackwell-Cook began laying down demos and the rest is DELTA DEEP history.

Collen, widely known to millions of rock ‘n roll fans for his iconic albums with Def Leppard, recently explained why they decided to put out this live album and DVD. “We recorded every night of our 2016 tours, east and west coast, expecting to pull out the best performances from different cities. But we managed to capture one of those special, magical nights where all the stars fall into place in Pawling, NY at Daryl’s House. This whole album was recorded that night. It was so relaxed but we were so on fire at the same.”  The musicians of DELTA DEEP bring their varying experiences from all corners of the music spectrum together to make a unique stew of blues-rock-n-soul.  Collen also adds, “The intention was never to have a DVD addition to the cd but seeing the performances live and the fact that Daryl’s House also video records its shows was an added bonus for us.”
