Delta Creek is Ken Presse (Juno nominated international touring band The Franklin Electric, Damn Truth), Mario Telaro (Celine Dion, Bobby Bazini). A congregation of 2 career musicians who together have accomplished a sound rich with pop sensibilities while staying true to the everyman ethic of country. The songs are tough minded and sentimental, replete with driving guitars, banjos, and vocals described as being “as warm as whiskey” (Elle Magazine). After listening to ‘MY MELODY’, Delta Creek’s lead single, you’re immediately struck by Patrick’s remarkably muggy vocal tone that takes full command of the track. It would be easy to assume he's from Memphis, rather than his hometown of Montreal.
Labeled ‘Canada’s super group’ (Breakfast Television- City TV/Rogers), these 2 soulful musicians started playing together in 2012 . On their long drives touring Canada, they would often listen to country radio and found themselves writing country tunes in the van to pass the time. This inevitably led them on a journey to create Delta Creek. The band's blend of traditional country music and Southern rock combined with elements of gospel and pop music gives it a crossover appeal. Coming from musically divergent backgrounds, Delta Creek’s drive to create country music comes from a desire to play relatable pop music with exciting instrumentation and inspiring musicianship.
“Impressive! The best independent release I’ve heard in a long time. Whoever is singing sounds like Brett Young. This act will be interesting to watch!” (Cool 100.1 Fm Country)
The Delta Creek name came to be as a tribute to a moment rich in history and musical ingenuity. Their first single, released in June 2018, has had notable airplay on country hot AC radio across Alberta, Ontario and Quebec.
On the heels of a successful radio promo tour across Ontario, Delta Creek spends a lot of time in Nashville writing for their upcoming EP which will be released in the fall of 2019 so look out for them as a tour is to follow.
