Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas
Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas
Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas return with their sophomore album “Telephone // Telefono,” their first full-length bilingual recording to be released in both English and Spanish language versions.

A second generation Cuban and Mexican-American, Jessica felt it her duty to further explore her own Hispanic heritage on the band's sophomore recording. She knew songs written and recorded in English required more than simply translation – a full rethink was needed to truly give them equivalent poetry and power in her second language. She pushed herself to use Spanish in ways she had never previously attempted, rewriting the songs with the invaluable aid of her mates in Mexico City to better suit the new lyrics and vocal style. Jessica even spent two full weeks speaking exclusively in Spanish, singing for hours in a friend’s studio to create a kind of muscle memory.

Intensely personal and undeniably provocative, “Telephone // Telefono” is a milestone achievement for the band who are upping the ante on their one-of-a-kind soundclash of Goth pop, Latin rock, psychedelic surf, punk cabaret, dirty dancehall, and bold balladry, a voracious approach made uniquely their own through Jessica's astonishing vocal power and The Deltas’ own boundless versatility. The new songs see The Deltas’ brand of Motor City magic taken to the max while their Spanish counterparts unveil fresh meanings and emotive power. The result is a genuinely unprecedented work of remarkable duality and impossible-to-ignore relevance.

In 2014, Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas released their debut “Secret Evil" and spent two years on the road; countless headline gigs, supports with such like-minded acts as Gogol Bordello, Social Distortion and St. Paul & The Broken Bones, and well-received sets at festivals like Lollapalooza, ACL Music Festival, Osheaga, and Bonnaroo. Jessica was intensely productive throughout the non-stop tour, somehow finding time to get married while also writing and readying the band’s next album. The Deltas reconvened in their native Michigan for sessions in early 2016, capturing all the fire, excitement, and band unity gained by their almost nightly performances.

Long hailed as an explosive and theatrical live outfit, Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas will celebrate “Telephone // Telefono” with a non-stop North American tour schedule, highlighted by headline dates, radio shows, festival appearances, and more.

This malleability expresses itself in so many facets of Jessica's life. The first-generation American grew up in Detroit. There are few regions more impressing as the nitty-gritty of Rock City and it left its mark on the 25-year-old artist. Her voice is instantly recognizable. Its strength and soul are matched by an honest vulnerability. Whether she is singing heartfelt words about someone that has left this world too early, or belting out a danceable tune through a big smile, Hernandez is unforgettable… especially with the ultra-talented Deltas behind her.

Never one to adhere to norms or outside pressures, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas have learned lesson after lesson along their rise as one of Detroit's favorite bands. They've honed their craft in sell-out shows and tours that span the nation. It's easiest to classify Hernandez by seeing the people that come to every show. All races, all ages, all fans of good music.
High Waisted
High Waisted
High Waisted is a NYC based surf band with pop sensibilities and an affliction for rock and roll.

Lo-fi fuzzy bass, reverb drenched guitars and radiant harmonies mesh to create the melodies of your wave-crashed daydreams.

Fronted by Jessica Louise Dye, her quirky spaghetti western aesthetic re-imagined from the nose of a surfboard makes High Waisted feel like the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino film.

Set to release their debut EP in the spring of 2014.
Best Behavior
Inspired by a breakup and a not-so-sunny cosmic prediction delivered by an astrologer, the songs on its debut release, Good Luck Bad Karma were written in under a month by Best Behavior's Alex Gruenburg, who went on to play and sing every part on the album himself. Reverb-soaked guitars are paired with playful vocal melodies and an infectious raw energy, resulting in the kind of summery, upbeat songs that will appeal to fans of Best Coast and Wavves.
