Concert Film ‘Delta Rae — Coming Home to Carolina’ Due on Blu-ray Combo Nov. 20 From MVD

The concert film Delta Rae — Coming Home to Carolina will come out as a Blu-ray combo pack (with DVD and bonus CD soundtrack) Nov. 20 from Cleopatra Entertainment and MVD Entertainment Group.

Earthy, familial alt-pop outfit Delta Rae juggles gospel-tinged country-rock, sensual-soul and harmony-laden Americana. Formed in 2009 as a four-piece around the talents of siblings Ian, Eric and Brittany Hölljes, along with Elizabeth Hopkins, the North Carolina-based band expanded to a sextet the following year with the additions of Mike McKee and Grant Emerson. In 2011 the group inked a deal with Sire/Warner Bros. The resulting Carry the Fire, their major-label debut, arrived in 2012. Carry the Fire reached No. 11 on the U.S. Heatseekers chart and No. 13 on the folk chart. Delta Rae released their second album, After It All, in the spring of 2015. Following a relocation to Nashville, the band signed with Big Machine in 2017 and issued a pair of EPs — “A Long and Happy Life” and “The Blackbird Sessions” — in quick succession. The front part of 2019 saw a spate of new singles, though in July of that year, Delta Rae announced their departure from Big Machine following a massive company buyout. Choosing to go independent, they quickly launched a crowd-funding campaign for their next release, a two-part double album called The Light & the Dark. The first volume, The Light, appeared in March 2020.
