The Delines, a side project of Americana favourites, Richmond Fontaine, will play Oran Mor as part of the Glasgow West End Festival on Friday, June 20.

Headed by vocalist, Amy Boone, the band’s debut album, “Colfax” comes out in April, with all songs written by RF frontman and now successful author, Willy Vlautin. He loves Amy’s voice, so much so he spent a year writing songs for her to record.

The Delines line-up is certainly handy as it features, Jenny Conlee (The Decemberists) on keyboards, as well as fellow Portlanders drummer, Sean Oldham (RF), Vlautin himself and, on pedal steel, Tucker Jackson (Minus 5).

Vlautin says the album is full of haunting, modern stories through “the musical lens of soul and roots music of decades past.”

“Amy’s voice has always stopped me in my tracks,” says Vlautin.

“I wanted to write songs like her voice: songs that might have a drink in the morning but they still make it to work.”
