Black River Delta
is a blues rock band originating from Bollnäs, Sweden. The group consists of Erik Jacobs (vocals, guitars), Pontus Ohlsson (guitars, harmonica), and Erik Nilsson (vocals, drums).
They have released two studio albums: “Devil on the Loose” (2016) and “VOL. II” (2018). The band formed in 2014 when Erik N and Pontus were living in Malmö. They invited Erik J, who was living in Stockholm, to come visit them in Malmö for some jam sessions. Soon after, the trio borrowed some microphones, went back to their hometown and spent the summer in a wooden cabin, writing and recording what would be their debut album, Devil on the Loose.
The bands raw blues rock sound draws from classic blues legends like Robert Johnson, the raw style of R. L. Burnside and modern artists as The Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr. and BRMC.
