Delta Riggs - Mary

Not sure how I missed this, but in case you’re like me, The Delta Riggs released “Mary” a few months ago.

On “Mary,” The Delta Riggs take their foot off the gas pedal and throttle it down from their usual foot-stomping, barn-burning blues rock for some simmering bluesy soul. Lead singer Elliot Hammond wails plaintively about woman troubles as a swollen chorus backs him in full gospel fashion while the guitar lines sting and sear their way through the lush layers of piano and percussion.

There's some serious blues going on here, so throw on those headphones and set aside the next couple of minutes to fully savor every beat.
