EP REVIEW: NO DEPRESSION

To replicate the energy and spontaneity of hardcore bluegrass, the band recorded each track live at Nashville’s Butcher Shoppe Recording Studio…This decision, paired with the simultaneous tracking of all lead vocals, maintains the freeform feel of the band and its guests’ live sets. Despite this loose approach to recording, it remains obvious that there’s always as many as seven top-notch players joining forces to do these live favorites and cross-genre cover songs justice.

EP REVIEW: COUNTRY STANDARD TIME

How many bands have taken the time-or had the vision-to create a mission statement?

I'm guessing not many, but Della Mae's is a significant one: to showcase top female musicians, and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance.

Noble and, as they have repeatedly proven, attainable.

EP Review: TAHOE ON STAGE

Della Mae’s broad-minded approach to music excels especially well in their masterful workout on The Allman Brothers Band classic, “Whipping Post.” The simultaneously weeping and surging melody, complex picking, and Woodsmith’s bluesy pleas, stir up a squall of reverence and innovation. Good Lord, I feel like I’m dyin’ to hear some more heavenly Della Mae again, right now!

...[the EP] gracefully displays the embarrassment of riches that is Della’s Mae’s skill set. On several tracks we hear a band that is able to play/write/sing music in the bluegrass tradition as well an anyone else alive.

Della Mae Sets The Station Inn On Fire

I love to play a little Della Mae on Spotify while I’m working. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to see them live, maybe two years ago at the Basement. But long enough that I’ve forgotten, as good as their music is, it can’t compare to seeing them live. You just can’t record that kind of energy. Their “Holiday party” at a packed Station Inn last Wednesday 12/12 reminded me of that.
