The Deltaz and You Knew Me When
The Deltaz have worked over a decade to master a wide spectrum of sounds, from heavy blues and psychedelic rock to classic country and folk. Brothers John Siegel and Ted Siegel spend many of their days perfecting new records at a handmade studio adjacent to residence in the hills of Mulholland Highway that overlook Los Angeles. They have become mainstays at a nearby Southern Californian institution, The Old Place, regularly performing for patrons at the ever-packed restaurant in the mountains. There, they caught the ear of the late bassist Rick Rosas (Neil Young, Joe Walsh), who became a mentor to the group. They spend their remaining hours rigorously touring, headlining shows across the country while attracting the attention of sonic peers such as alt-country act The White Buffalo and Mississippi Blues legend Watermelon Slim, playing with both on several occasions. The Deltaz have had their music placed on CMT and MTV television shows such as Jersey Shore andParty Down South.
The Deltaz were formed while the brothers were still in high school. The boys had already immersed themselves in the last century of popular music by that point, and this passion led them both to quickly pick up their respective instruments of choice. Ted has grown into one of the sharpest guitarists among the independent scene in Los Angeles today, while commanding drummer John has expanded his role in the group over the years to include impressive harmonica work and vocal harmonies that leave audiences overwhelmed at his coordination. The two have clearly learned to work with each other, feeding off of each other’s talents to bring ever-climactic performances to energized and extremely diverse

Outfitted with an array of instruments, You Knew Me When is a husband and wife indie folk-rock pairing with a full band sound. After uprooting from their Nashville home and full-time jobs in June of 2012, Cie and Karisa Hoover set plans to tour the nation for a full year…however, they never stopped. Since that time they have continued to tour full time, creating and serving up an array of craft brewed compositions coast to coast, as well as releasing their first studio album “You, Me, and the Rest of the World” in late 2012. Many miles and memories later, the duo have released their new album “We Found Roads”. The album is a culmination of mile-markers and moments derived from giving up everything and finding new paths together // now available via www.youknewmewhen.com, iTunes, and other online retailers.
