The Delta Bell is the songs of singer, musician and songwriter Kate Gerrard, based in Brighton, UK. Following the success of debut single Wasted in March 2014, her debut album Bow Out Of the Fading Light was released in July 2015 to critical acclaim, including a nomination for Best Female Vocalist by Fatea Magazine. The album features ten timeless songs of love, loss and redemption over arrangements of guitars, piano, pedal steel, harmonium and strings. Songs sweep from tender, intimate arrangements to warm orchestration and gospel harmonies.
Since the album’s release, The Delta Bell has become a live band including Andrew Blake (pedal steel/guitars), Beth Chesser (backing vocals/keyboards), James Bandenburg (bass/harmonica), and Bob Baker (drums). In October 2017 the band released the album Hold Fast The Fire on indie label Random Acts Of Vinyl. Described as “Americana via the Velvet Underground” the album is available now on 12″ vinyl and download.
