So, my buddy Zach, from Brain Release Valve, Memphis Fast Fiction, and The Great and Secret Thing, gave me a call on Saturday while I was shooting a wedding. He asked if I could come downtown to the Emerge Memphis Building and shoot a band for him because he and Laurel had inadvertently become the managers. The band is called The Delta Collective. They’re a product of the Memphis Music Launch, which works just like the 48 Hour Launch for start-ups and small businesses. None of these fine folks knew each other before they met at the event. They wrote and recorded two songs in 48 hours while also putting together a business plan that was able to secure them a place in the final four of the event. This means they’ll have an opportunity to play some gigs and get some exposure, possibly a record deal if they can win the whole thing.
So go check out their website (also done inside of that 48 hour window), like them on the book of faces, share their track with everyone you know. Let’s help these folks start something great, bring a bit of music back to The Bluff City, while also showing that folks of all walks of life can come together from all over this diverse landscape of cultures we call Home (Memphis) and make something truly grand.
