"Glen Delpit- High Water Everywhere"

Glen Delpit, High Water Everywhere (Dharma Brand Records) - Long-time Fresno favorite Glen Delpit returns with High Water Everywhere, his fourth solo effort. Delpit works from an acoustic and folk base, singing the gambler's blues.
High Water Everywhere is filled with images of down-on-their-luck gamblers, itinerant preachers, and burning rain. Yet I like the album best on songs like "Dark Carnival," "Shifting Sands," and "There's a Road," in which Delpit works from his story-telling strengths.
High Water Everywhere is more in the realm of Mark Knopfler than Robert Johnson - more emphasis on guitars than exorcism of past demons.
With his use of sound bites from old films, Delpit seeks to bridge the past with the present. Watch out for High Water Everywhere.

"Glen Delpit and the Subterraneans Lean Times in the Land of Plenty"

Glen Delpit & the Subterraneans
Glen Delpit ended up in the Central California San Joaquin Valley by way of New Orleans and he may well be one of the West Coasts best kept musical secrets. He’s played music rooted in the Blues and Folk all his life. He formed The Subterraneans in the 1990s and their three albums to date stand up tall alongside some of the rich and more famous Alt-Americana bands of today. The new one LEAN TIMES… features a veritable history of his musical influences from Appalachian, to Bluegrass, Bayou and Deep South with at times an early R&B vocal inclination a la Van Morrison. In this land of plenty & too much of everything the music of this heartfelt handcrafted album stands out.
