Delta Moon’s latest album, Low Down, released in May 2015, is a rocking set of twelve songs, including nine originals by lead vocalist Tom Gray, the Roots Music Association’s 2008 Blues Songwriter of the Year, and covers penned by Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Skip James. Net Rhythms (UK) has called Delta Moon’s signature sound, “Music as it should be – raw and honest.” We call it a voice, a groove and two slide guitars.

A chance meeting in an Atlanta, Georgia, music store brought Delta Moon’s two founders, Tom Gray and Mark Johnson, together. Tom tried to sell Mark a Dobro out of the back of his van. The girl with Mark whispered, “Let’s get out of here.” Mark didn’t buy the guitar, but the two exchanged phone numbers and soon were playing together regularly in clubs, coffee shops and barbecue joints around Atlanta. The name Delta Moon came to Mark on a pilgrimage to Muddy Waters’ cabin near Clarksdale, Mississippi.

Delta Moon quickly gathered a wall-full of local “best” awards. After winning the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2003, the band widened its travels to include the US, Canada, and Europe. In 2007 bassist Franher Joseph joined Delta Moon. He was followed in 2015 by drummer Vic Stafford (Blueground Undergrass, Donna the Buffalo, Toubab Krewe) to complete the current line-up.
