Dear Friends!

We're writing to you from sunny Los Angeles, just starting the first leg of our month-long cross-country tour. We've had some great shows out here in California, and are heading up to the Bay Area next to continue the adventure. Thank you so much to those who've come to see us and if we haven't made it to your town recently, hopefully we'll be there soon! In the meantime, we've got some big news that we'd like to share with you.

We're very excited to announce that we are now officially signed to Warner Brothers' Sire Records!! Sire has been home to amazing artists from The Ramones and The Talking Heads to Madonna and Regina Spektor. Back in July, we played an acoustic showcase for Sire Records founder, Seymour Stein and he's been following the band closely ever since. He was recently honored with the the first ever Billboard Icons award in Cannes, France and mentioned Delta Rae in his acceptance speech. Seymour shares our artistic vision for Delta Rae and we couldn't be more excited about working with him and the Sire/Warner Brothers team. Check out this article and this video if you'd like to know more.

You should all know that none of this would have happened without you. We are so grateful to have the support of so many wonderful and kind people, and know we wouldn't be having any of this success if it wasn't for your early belief in us. 

You may be wondering how this news will effect the album that you helped us fund. After all, the goal of our kickstarter campaign was to create a fan-funded album that represented the music of Delta Rae at it's best. And that's exactly what we did -- together. The project that we set out to make is the one that we will soon be sharing with you and the world. The recording is nearly done and it sounds absolutely AMAZING! We've been working diligently with our producer, Alex Wong, over the past 3 months -- recording drums, piano, guitars, tons of vocals, harmonium, organ, strings, horns and even the waterphone (might want to google that one). We CANNOT WAIT for you to hear it!! Working with Sire and Warner we'll have an incredible team helping to market the album and find opportunities for our music to get to more people. In short, the effect will be to get this remarkable album we made together in front of the world!

Also, we're still 100% committed to following through on all of our promises to you as Kickstarter donors, and will keep you posted as we make progress. Sorry if you feel like we've been slacking on that commitment. We've been working hard on the album, but as we put the finishing touches on all of the songs, we are turning our full attention to completing all the other great rewards we promised. 

Thank you all so much again! We feel so lucky to have so many amazing fans supporting the music we make, and are so grateful for all we've accomplished together. Please come see us live so we can say so in person!

Love,
Delta Rae
