After their packed out show at Oran Mor during Celtic Connections in January and a number one record, The Delines are making a return back to Glasgow.


The Delines debut album Colfax surprised fans and critics alike. The band had only been together a week when they went into the studio and cut the record. Uncut gave it 9/10 stars and praised its “widescreen romanticism”, calling it “the richest collection of songs Vlautin has written.” Evoking the feel of a beat-up Dusty Springfield or a weary Rickie Lee Jones, Colfax made a dozen top ten records of the year lists and The Delines sold out venues in the UK, Ireland, and had successful tours in the Europe and Australia. 


The Guardian declared them the surprise hit of the End of the Road festival and then  it all came to a stop. Lead singer Amy Boone was hit by a car and put into the hospital and recovery for many months, finally putting the band on hold for over three years.


Amy is finally on the mend and The Delines are back with their sophomore effort released in January this year.


The new album Imperial was Number 1 for two weeks running in official UK Americana charts.

The Delines are led by vocalist Amy Boone( The Damnations, TX), the keyboard and horn work of Cory Gray, as well as Richmond Fontaine members: Sean Oldham, Freddie Trujillo, and Willy Vlautin. 

Vlautin, the acclaimed novelist and songwriter for Richmond Fontaine, has penned all ten tracks. Vlautin’s book Lean on Pete was recently released as a major motion picture. Richmond Fontaine broke up in 2016 after releasing over ten records.

Critical acclaim for The Imperial, out now on Decor Records:

“Boone’s rich, Rickie Lee Jones–meets–Chrissie Hynde voice is the careworn bedrock upon which these bruised, dynamics–rich songs depend… There’s no mistaking it’s pedigree.” 
MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“Portland sextet return from the brink in imperious fettle… Boone is on terrific form and these sad tales are given empathetic grace by The Delines’ stirring arrangements.” Uncut – 8/10

“Majestic… Boone’s smoky vocals fit the desperation of Vlautin’s mini–dramas perfectly, the band’s country–soul swing evocatively solid.” Q – 4 Stars ****

“Stunning… On songs such as Cheer Up Charley and Roll Back My Life, singer Amy Boone mines ever deeper levels of hurt and heartache.” Sunday Times
