JULY 5, 2018
As Della Mae gears up for summer touring and fall recording, we have important news to share with our community of fans.
After eight years of performances all over the world and three records with us, our beloved Courtney Hartman is parting ways with the band. Courtney wishes to spend less time on the road so she can be closer to her family and devote time to a variety of other musical pursuits. She will be releasing new music soon and you can follow her work at www.courtneyhartman.com.
Courtney is one of finest musicians out there, and we all look forward to hearing what incredible music she creates next. We are as excited for her future as she is for ours.
Della Mae was founded to showcase top caliber female musicians, and our plan is to do just that at upcoming shows. Our performances will feature GRAMMY award-winning banjo player Alison Brown, Bonnie Paine of Elephant Revival, original Della Mae guitarist Avril Smith, and more.
We're excited to be writing for our next record, and to welcome these special guests this summer and fall.
We so appreciate all your love and support, and look forward to seeing you at festivals and concerts in the coming months.
