|Phil Collen, lead
guitarist of British rock band Def Leppard & alternative
roots/rock band Manraze, started DELTA DEEP as an extreme
blues project. The band has been likened to Aretha
Franklin & Chaka Khan performing with Led Zeppelin.
Phils love and appreciation for the blues since childhood
enabled him to move forward quickly with the bands
inception in 2012.
Blues was created out of something completely different from what we hear today. I grew up listening to rock music but then I found out it was all based on blues. Jimmy Page, Hendrix, all of those guys-they got it from blues. Todays musicians miss out on what blues is completely about. Theres a type of blues style but not actual blues music. I just dont hear true blues anymore unless I go back and listen to really old music. With that reasoning Phil decided to change the tide of what he was hearing.
The critical authority, Elmore Magazine said of the band, If youre into good old spiritual, emotional and thought provoking rock n roll, look no further than Delta Deep. Screamer Magazine accurately described Delta Deeps music as Sweltering hot, sorrow-drenched, deep southern blues. Axis Magazine declared, [i]f the goal of (DELTA DEEP) is to create music that revives an appreciation for blues music. Mission accomplished. The band also features Debbi Blackwell-Cook (vocalist/songwriter), Stone Temple Pilots Robert DeLeo (bassist), Forrest Robinson (drummer), and Helen L. Collen (songwriter). The band released their self-titled debut in 2015. Together with the release of the brand new CD/DVD "East Coast Live", Frontiers Music Srl reissues the debut album from the band which was originally released in 2015 in the USA and UK only. The record includes 11 excellent Blues and Rock numbers and sees cameo appearances from none other than Whitesnakes David Coverdale, Collens bandmate Joe Elliott and Collens ManRaze bandmates Paul Cook (Sex Pistols) and & Simon Laffy.
