Maddock, Dehlia Low Perform Sunday
Summer on the Porch continues in Aberdeen, Sunday, June 13, with a co-bill of talented musicians.
James Maddock, a New York singer and songwriter, will open the show at 6 p.m..
Back in 1999, James Maddock, the lead singer of the band Wood, looked like he was on the verge of worldwide fame. The group’s debut album, “Songs From Stamford Hill,” was showcased on popular TV dramas such as “Dawson’s Creek,” while Wood was touring with the likes of Paula Cole and Train.
Now Maddock is back as a solo artist. Ten years after his debut, Maddock has created a heartbreakingly lovely debut solo album, “Sunrise on Avenue C.” His timeless songwriting style, which seems to draw from great songwriters of every era, conveys quiet confidence and tender intimacy.
Dehlia Low is a young Asheville-based band focused on early country, bluegrass and original music. Their songs feature honest, hard-hitting vocals with tight harmonies, backed up beautifully by masterful dobro and mandolin playing, lively fiddling, solid guitar and a booming upright bass.
Beginning in 2007, the group developed a devoted fan base with the help of their self-titled EP, receiving national and international reviews and radio play. In 2009, Dehlia Low released “Tellico,” showcasing the group’s exceptional songwriting talent and outstanding vocal and instrumental performances. They traveled across the U.S. on the national festival circuit in support of the release, including appearances at Appalachian Uprising, Pickathon, Jammin’ at Hippie Jack’s, Durango Meltdown and Bristol Rhythm & Roots.
