  • Description

    Iris DeMent has returned with her first album of original music in 16 years, Sing the Delta . The album brings the delta to life through timeless songs, DeMent s richly evocative voice and support from a cast of first-call musicians including Al Perkins, Reese Wynans, and album co-producers Bo Ramsey and Richard Bennett. Sing The Delta is uplifting and heartbreaking, ripe with twang and soul. Dixie horns, weeping slide guitar balladry and bright, Gospel-tinged piano swirl as Iris contemplates religion, love and family with introspection and imagery that few singer-songwriters can convey. Iris voice soars over a bluesy crawl on 'The Kingdom Has Already Come' while 'The Night I Learned How Not to Pray' is a vivid story about the tragic death of a young boy and subsequent religious reckoning.
