Jacque Jordan releases new Americana EP "The L.J."

There's a smoky and carefree nature to Jacque Jordan's brand of folk indie; her newest EP The L.J. contains five tracks that Jordan has honed over the last several months to best show her style. As an Atlanta native who calls Nashville home, Jordan embodies the warmth of a Southern autumn night and the passion of a songwriter searching for the right words to paint a picture of her present moment. All of the songs on The L.J. contain field noise, which gives the impression that they were recorded live; that gives these polished songs the rough edge that makes Jordan's latest EP interesting. The album is available on Spotify; watch her live performance of the track "Wild Oats" below. - Will Sisskind

Iranian-American songwriter Sam Hale releases LP "Somewhere Between Love & War"

Sam Hale came to Nashville from Los Angeles in order to record and release his third album, titled Somewhere Between Love & War. This collection of songs written and performed by Hale came to life with the production expertise of Sam Kassirer, known for recording with Josh Ritter. The new album showcases Hale's blend of sounds, taking inspiration from standard fare indie rock and mixing in shades of EDM, classical, baroque pop, and emo. The title of the album sounds not just like an observation about the times we live in, but about Hale's own inner turmoil about uprooting his life to chase music in Nashville. But having listened to Somewhere Between Love & War, the end result sounds like it was worth it. Listen to the album below. - Will Sisskind

Jon Worthy & The Bends play Radio Cafe 11.19

Jon Worthy and his band The Bends play Radio Cafe on November 19th, but in the meantime, they've released a video for their track "Have It Your Way", an indie pop jam featuring fellow Nashville vocalist and songstress Stelle Amor. "Have It Your Way" comes from Worthy's album Only A Dream, which came out earlier this year. The band recorded the video at Front Porch Studios with Amor taking a verse and backing vocals on the chorus. The track is one of a few that Worthy's released as singles from the record; The Deli featured "Help Me" back in August. Worthy's working on the follow-up to Only A Dream now; he released the single "Is It Too Late" in October. Catch him and The Bends playing at Radio Cafe on November 19th, and check out the video for "Have It Your Way" below. - Will Sisskind

Levi Miller releases album from the depths "Tales In Red Writing"

We must bring to your attention the music of Levi J. Miller, especially his latest release Tales In Red Writing, which came out just in time for Halloween. Miller, who releases albums at a breakneck pace, continues his exploration of darkness in music on his new record, going full goth on songs like "Trepanning (-)" and "Petrification". He also includes touches of doom metal in tracks like "Tetragrammaton" and prog-rock on "Eliphas". In the seven tracks on Tales In Red Writing, you may receive a full crash course in all of music's darkest genres; Miller pulls the delivery of each off with ease. Miller will perform at The Post-Election Hangover at The End on November 15th. Take a listen to Tales In Red Writing below. - Will Sisskind 





Americana artist Sierra Ferrell thrives in solo songwriting career

Record companies running around in a fury screeching: "Where's the next Soccer Mommy? Where's the next rising female singer-songwriter coming out of the Nashville scene?" We here at The Deli Magazine don't have a definite answer, but we can suggest former 600 Lbs Of Sin frontwoman Sierra Ferrell as a tough competitor. She's busked around the country and built her following in her own way, choosing to blow with the wind and let her music take her where it will. Taking inspiration from Dolly and Emmylou, Ferrell makes Americana her own with her voice's subtle warble and breadth of emotion. One of her latest singles "Little Bird" showcases her brilliant arrangements and musical talent; take a listen to it below. Ferrell has just wrapped up a tour of the US, so stay tuned for new music or new show dates. - Will Sisskind
