Delta Rae /ˈdɛltə reɪ/ is an American folk rock band formed in Durham, North Carolina. The band consists of three siblings Ian Hölljes (vocals and guitar), Eric Hölljes (vocals, guitar, piano and keys) and Brittany Hölljes (vocals), as well as Elizabeth Hopkins (vocals), Mike McKee (percussion) and Grant Emerson (bass guitar). They began as a four-piece ensemble and added McKee and Emerson to the dynamic in 2010.
Their name hails from a fictional story the Hölljeses’ mother intended to write about a Southern girl named Delta Rae who summons the Greek gods to earth.
On November 19, 2013, they released the EP Chasing Twisters which included a new version of their single “If I Loved You” featuring Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Delta Rae have toured in support of this release for much of 2014, including a set at Lollapalooza.
