Jon Worthy & The Bends play Radio Cafe 11.19

Jon Worthy and his band The Bends play Radio Cafe on November 19th, but in the meantime, they've released a video for their track "Have It Your Way", an indie pop jam featuring fellow Nashville vocalist and songstress Stelle Amor. "Have It Your Way" comes from Worthy's album Only A Dream, which came out earlier this year. The band recorded the video at Front Porch Studios with Amor taking a verse and backing vocals on the chorus. The track is one of a few that Worthy's released as singles from the record; The Deli featured "Help Me" back in August. Worthy's working on the follow-up to Only A Dream now; he released the single "Is It Too Late" in October. Catch him and The Bends playing at Radio Cafe on November 19th, and check out the video for "Have It Your Way" below. - Will Sisskind


Levi Miller releases album from the depths "Tales In Red Writing"

We must bring to your attention the music of Levi J. Miller, especially his latest release Tales In Red Writing, which came out just in time for Halloween. Miller, who releases albums at a breakneck pace, continues his exploration of darkness in music on his new record, going full goth on songs like "Trepanning (-)" and "Petrification". He also includes touches of doom metal in tracks like "Tetragrammaton" and prog-rock on "Eliphas". In the seven tracks on Tales In Red Writing, you may receive a full crash course in all of music's darkest genres; Miller pulls the delivery of each off with ease. Miller will perform at The Post-Election Hangover at The End on November 15th. Take a listen to Tales In Red Writing below. - Will Sisskind 

Americana artist Sierra Ferrell thrives in solo songwriting career

Record companies running around in a fury screeching: "Where's the next Soccer Mommy? Where's the next rising female singer-songwriter coming out of the Nashville scene?" We here at The Deli Magazine don't have a definite answer, but we can suggest former 600 Lbs Of Sin frontwoman Sierra Ferrell as a tough competitor. She's busked around the country and built her following in her own way, choosing to blow with the wind and let her music take her where it will. Taking inspiration from Dolly and Emmylou, Ferrell makes Americana her own with her voice's subtle warble and breadth of emotion. One of her latest singles "Little Bird" showcases her brilliant arrangements and musical talent; take a listen to it below. Ferrell has just wrapped up a tour of the US, so stay tuned for new music or new show dates. - Will Sisskind


Soul songwriter MELD launches Kickstarter for debut LP

Having released her debut EP H.U.R.T. in 2017, soul fusion singer-songwriter Melanie Dewey -- known as MELD -- has launched a Kickstarter to kick off recording sessions with her band for her upcoming debut LP. Dewey has performed around Nashville for a few years now, and has taken her act across ten different states and over twenty-five cities. Her hope with her music and her debut album is to help inspire more women into the forefront of soul music and to show that eclectic musical elements can jam well together when put together the right way. With her Kickstarter, Dewey hopes not only to cover all the costs for her band, the studio time, and the other production expenses, but also to build a record that will allow her to share her voice beyond anywhere she's ever shared it before. You can view the campaign page here, and you can watch Dewey and the rest of MELD perform live at Rockwood Music Hall in New York below. - Will Sisskind


Arts Fishing Club play 11.01 release show at True Music Room

With a now fully-realized band sound and an EP on the loose, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Chris Kessenich's project Arts Fishing Club will perform a Nashville release show on November 1st and True Music Room and Bar. Kessenich and his band released the first set of tracks from their EP Human on October 26th; the five songs showcase Kessenich blending his past folk sound with a touch of indie rock and world beats. The track "Cannibals (Song For Aleppo)" -- about the Syrian Civil War -- has notes of passion from Chris Martin and Bono, and gives a lyrical nod to Steve Perry. Songs with stadium rock electricity like that on this record show that Kessenich and Arts Fishing Club as a whole are headed in an exciting direction; check them out on 11.01 at True Music Room. Take a listen to the first track from Human, "Icarus" below. - Will Sisskind
