Who’s ready for a slice of modern heartland rock?

I originally heard about Delta Rae while living up in Bethlehem, PA. The lively country six-piece has come up to Christmas City a handful of times in the past, and even won our hearts with a high-powered song about the rise and fall of Bethlehem Steel on 2015’s “After It All.” Even so, I had never gotten the chance to take in the full, live Delta Rae experience…
…until Wednesday night.
Amy Gerhartz’s forthcoming album, “Hold On,” is scheduled for release in early 2019. If it’s anything like her 2017 release, “Fire,” you’re in for a real treat.

I’ve been in Nashville for a week, and I already find myself inspired by this city. I’ve been laying low a bit, taking my time as I get to know my surroundings and the general landscape around Music City.
Nashville-based bluegrass artist Sierra Hull announced her ‘Christmas Time Is Here’ tour on Friday, designed to give back to several communities across the midwest and south this holiday season.
Each of the four tour stops will be partnered with Toys for Tots and/or a local food bank, seeking to ease the stress of the holidays for the less fortunate. Each attending fan who donates an unwrapped toy, canned foods, or makes a monetary donation to the local food bank on-site will receive a free, signed poster for Hull’s Grammy-nominated latest release, Weighted Mind, while supplies last.
Together, with her band (Justin Moses, Kai Welch, Eddie Barbash, Ethan Jodziewicz, and Jamie Dick), Hull aims to bring Christmas joy to those attending the shows and those in need this December. Details on each tour stop are below:
Dec. 7 — Sheldon Concert Hall — St. Louis, MO
(Toys for Tots, canned food, and monetary donations accepted for St. Louis Area Foodbank)
Dec. 8 — Franklin Theatre — Franklin, TN
(Toys for Tots, canned food, and monetary donations accepted for Second Harvest Food Bank)
Dec. 20 — Tangled String Studios — Huntsville, AL
(Monetary donations accepted for Food Bank of North Alabama)
Dec. 21 — Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts — Franklin, NC
(Toys for Tots, monetary donations accepted for Macon County Care Net)
In September, I gave you an insider’s look at Canton, Ohio’s Hey Monea. Now I’m giving you a chance to get your own look as they hit the road for their first tour of 2019. If you’re here in the east, there is ample opportunity to catch them live from New York to Florida. I wouldn’t wait too long to get your tickets, though. Great music has a way of drawing people in.
While we were in Nashville this past week, we got to #GoUnderground there for the first time — and our first glimpse of Music City’s original scene lived up to expectations.
We’re on the road, headed right for a weekend of exploration in Nashville!
We’re pretty pumped to get down and check out the sights and, of course, sounds of Music City. Along the way, we’ll surely be checking in with our discoveries.

Since January 2016, Lehigh Valley Underground has featured some of the best and brightest independent musicians, in our region and others. We have welcomed and reviewed submissions of all genres, covered hundreds of performances, and have built a stronger community around the art being created every day, in our own backyard.
As we continue forward, we are inspired to take what we’ve done in eastern Pennsylvania and use it as fuel to think bigger. We envision a platform that connects independent musicians with their peers in other markets, as well as with the larger music industry and its vast educational resources. This, we believe, will take everyone’s game to the next level. However, we realize that we must walk the same walk and do that ourselves.
Today, we announce the next phase of our evolution: We are now the Underground Music Collective (UMC).
Georgia native Lauren Morrow, whom some might know from her time with Americana band The Whiskey Gentry, has stepped out with her own self-titled debut EP, recruiting some of Nashville’s finest players along the way.
