Delbi's songs are built to put the musical vibration as the first ground, his warm and sensitive tales are progressive and improvisation is always required.

Biography

White Folk with Black Groove.
Delbi, as a solo project from his beginning in 2008, made his live music by using loop and multi-effects on stage, while playing guitar, keyboards, percussions and singing.
Influenced by old blues style and music from the 70's, his voice reminds artists as Jeff Buckley or Tom Yorke, and his playing touch has been compared to Ben Harper or John Butler.
Delbi's songs are built to put the musical vibration as the first ground, his warm and sensitive tales are progressive and improvisation is always required.
As a one man band, Romain Delebarre aka Delbi played around 200 gigs in France until 2010, and has been helped and supported by several northern structures (he lives in Lille, North of France) until the french medias and professionals started to get an interest in his music.

He then opened the project to three musicians, and the band worked on the original songs, giving them a live energy driving to a rock n'roll and powerfull show.

Delbi has played in opening of: Hawksley Workman, Nervous Cabaret, Okou, The Sweet Vandals, Lucky Peterson, Trigger Finger...

Lyrics

WHEREVER

Written By: DELBI

I'm Climbing up the mountains with my bag on my back No need to retain me I'll be back I've cried so many nights, surprised by the sunlight But I'll never, I'll never be who I've been before
Such a coward in a hole
I'm going nowhere, to find somewhere A land in piece where, I could defnititly wear My rested soul, then I'll give you a call You will join me, you will join me We'll be back on the road
Together, wherever
We've walked hundred thousand miles through the rain and the snow We've met people whose lies were keeping them so low Back into the wild, no more mild We've got nothing to do with those fucking blind masses
Together, wherever
Across the world, across the line You've got to keep all this in mind And tell about it, tell about it
Go far, leave alone, like wise stars not rolling stones Go far, go far

LITTLE LIFE MUSIC

Written By: DELBI

I’m rising from  a long sweet night into your arms
I feel  so warm and soft
Opening an eye and looking out

I see a burning sky
Tears from you  eyes
 
You’re strokin’ me but I can feel that it’s the last Time we share our  skin
Shadows are hidding your smile but I can see it throught
A hope for my all life
 
All over here is hate and despair
All over you is filled with  pain
Go away , my boy

WISER

Written By: DELBI

I closed my eyes for a few days Such a convenient way to look inside While all my friends have gone on their own ways So alive
Now here I'm alone like a keeper I'm watching over what they left behind I'm afraid I missed the boat for the new world I'm a fool
Days are growing longer Face to face with myself Stone-heart and glass-eyes I'm running through a steam of lies All around, all around me
Now I'm talking with an old seaman Who gives me some news of my old friends They have found what I am losing
Days are growing longer Face to face with myself Stone-heart and glass-eyes I'm running through a steam of lies All around, all around me
Go wiser, feel stronger, sing louder ?til your heart is broken ...
