Delta Rae were signed by the legendary Seymour Stein himself; the first signing in quite a while. Stein is renowned for having a keen eye for new talent and had a hand in the careers of such iconic artists as the Ramones, Talking Heads, the Pretenders, Madonna, and the Smiths. Stein called the band "an important addition to our overall roster. Their music, all original, is a mix of blues, country and gospel with a strong rock and roll influence. I hate labels, but if forced I would have to call their music Original Americana,' not unlike what the English are sending over via Mumford & Sons and others. I'm very proud to welcome Delta Rae to Sire. I know you will love Delta Rae and their music as much as I do."
