Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas are a wide-ranging, high-energy rock & roll band whose sound is equal parts rockabilly and surf pop, cabaret jazz and funky reggae, Latin psych and Gypsy punk – all cooked up on the hot Motor City pavement and seasoned by that distinctly Detroit combination of blasted R&B, showband theatrics, and limitless rock ‘n’ soul energy.
The release of 2013's Demons EP and 2014’s Secret Evil record put the band on the road for most of 2014 + 2015. The band has supported Saint Paul & The Broken Bones and Social Distortion, played on Late Night with David Letterman, and performed a series of headlining and festival shows (Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, ACL).
Songs like “Caught Up” and the rollicking “Sorry I Stole Your Man” crank like Wanda Jackson fronting The Seeds in an Acapulco dive bar. The Deltas busting out their wicked blend of girl group melodies, driving arrangements, and infectious energy. Tender tracks like “Cry Cry Cry” and the album-closing “Lovers First” stand out as snapshots of experiences, intimacies, and moments that matter.
Look out for new music coming soon.
