Info for Family Reunion
Della Mae is a GRAMMY-nominated, Nashville-based, all-female string band made up of lead vocalist/guitarist Celia Woodsmith, 2-time national champion fiddle player Kimber Ludiker, and mandolinist Jenni Lyn Gardner. Hailing from across North America, and reared in diverse musical styles, they are one of the most charismatic and engaging roots bands touring today. They have traveled to over 30 countries spreading peace and understanding through music. Their mission as a band is to showcase top female musicians, and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance. This record is about independence, ownership, trust, and family. We relied on our instincts, skills and musicianship. It is also about catharsis - rising from the ashes of a global pandemic with new skills, songs, and outlook on life. (Della Mae)
The follow-up to their Grammy-nominated 2013 album, ‘This World Oft Can Be,’ Della Mae’s self-titled second release for Rounder finds the all-female combo delivering eleven compelling new tunes that embody the musical and emotional qualities of the group’s prior output while venturing into uncharted creative territory. Produced by Jacquire King (Of Monsters and Men, Norah Jones, Dawes, Kings of Leon), ‘Della Mae’ showcases the band’s emotional intensity and musical invention on such originals as “Boston Town,” “Rude Awakening” and “For the Sake of My Heart,” as well as on vivid, insightful readings of the Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations” and the Low Anthem’s “To Ohio.” With an approach that’s steeped in tradition yet firmly rooted in the present, Della Mae draws from a well of influences to create vibrantly original music that conveys their expansive musical vision with timeless lyrical truths and a contemporary sensibility all their own, placing them alongside such young acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.
