BAND’S SONGWRITER, AUTHOR WILLY VLAUTIN, IN AUSTRALIA LATE AUGUST FOR MELBOURNE & BRISBANE WRITER’S FESTIVAL.

From Portland, Oregon The Delines released its debut Colfax in the USA in April 2014 on Decor Records. You can find out more about the band right here and here’s the clip to “I Won’t Slip Up” which is from that release.

 

 

On the ever of the first Australian tour by this Americana country soul band, Warner Music Australia has announced the Australian release of the band’s debut album.  The band is here in October for an appearance at the new Americana festival Out On The Weekend and an East Coast tour.  The album, with two exclusive Australia/New Zealand bonus tracks, is out September 12.

The Delines is Willy Vlautin, with Amy Boone of The Damnations (TX) and members of Richmond Fontaine and The Minus 5.  Indeed, Vlautin is both the front man of alt-country outfit Richmond Fontaine and a novelist and will be in Australia August 29 –September 7 2014 for appearances at both the Melbourne and Brisbane Writers Festivals.

The seeds for Colfax were sown in 2012 when Vlautin, so beguiled by Boone’s voice, wrote an album-worth of songs and built a band around her.  Recorded at Flora Recording and Playback and produced with John Askew in Portland, Oregon, Colfax tells haunting, modern stories through the musical lens of soul and roots music of decades past.

Vlautin is currently promoting his fourth novel, The Free, published by Allen & Unwin in Australia.  It has garnered acclaim from journalists, fellow authors, and musicians.  Drive-By Truckers front man Patterson Hood penned the song “Pauline Hawkins” based on a character in The Free.  The film version of Vlautin’s first novel, The Motel Life, was recently released as a critically lauded major motion picture staring Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Stephen Dorff, and Kris Kristofferson.

Willy Vlautin appears at the Melbourne Writers Festival August 29-31 and the Brisbane Writer’s Festival September 3-7.
