From Howlin’ Wolf to Ray Charles and “dark Motown” influences, sitar samples, gospel strains and even a snippet of water-splashing pygmies, The Bright Spots mixes diverse elements that dovetail into Randall’s finest album yet.

This Atlanta-based band combines the delta blues with roots rock, country and funky slide guitars. And with a live show second-to-none, the dual slide guitars of Delta Moon carry the listener deep into the heart of the American South, where sinuous Mississippi blues meets the gritty backwoods twang of Appalachia and winds around a rock-steady beat like kudzu on a barbwire fence. Net Rhythms calls it “Music as it should be – raw and honest.” We call it Blues-Infused American Roots. Backed by a rock solid rhythm section, Delta Moon soon began picking up steam as they gathered a wall full of “best” awards, including winning the 2003 International Blues Challenge. The band’s work ethic of constant recording and touring has made them even stronger and we are always happy to see them come our way!
