Biography

The dual slide guitars of Delta Moon carry the listener deep into the heart of the American South, where sinuous Mississippi blues meets the gritty backwoods twang of Appalachia and winds around a rock-steady beat like kudzu on a barbwire fence.

The American Roots Music Association named whiskey-voiced Tom Gray 2008 Blues Songwriter of the Year. His songs have been recorded by Cyndi ... Read more in Amazon's Delta Moon Store

Editorial Reviews

Review

"A classy female singer and a pair of funky, slunky slide guitarists who play as one voice." -- The Charlotte Observer

"All in all an excellent disc, unique yet in a classic vein. Recommended without reservation!" -- www.mnblues.com

"Delta Moon strikes gold with raw intensity." -- Southeast Performer

About the Artist

Delta Moon formed in the late 1990s when Gina Leigh, Mark Johnson, and Tom Gray all lived within a few blocks of each other in Atlanta's Inman Park neighborhood. The three got together regularly in Mark's livingroom to work up arrangements of classic blues and original songs for two slide guitars and voices. Soon, joined by a rotating cast of percussionists, drummers, and bassists, the band was playing in rib joints, nightclubs, and festivals around Atlanta and neighboring cities. Following the March 2002 release of their debut CD, imaginatively entitled "Delta Moon," the band settled on a permanent rhythm section - The Quarter Ton of Fun: Johnny McKnight and Jon Schwenke - and started ranging farther from home, energizing crowds with their powerful and imaginative stage show. As one audience member said, "Thanks for inviting us to your party!"

I could start and finish my review with a single word: FANTASTIC! However maybe it is better to say something more about this abosutely marvellous blues CD. I never heard about this band in my life. I found them by chance surfing Amazon.com catalogue and I bought this CD because of the reviews published below. Really I didn't know what to expect when I put the CD in my car's CD player this morning. What a fantastic surprise! It has been a long time since a record has impressed me so much at the first listening. This is a traditional blues album played from start to finish with incendiary passion, great respect for the tradition and most of all with incredible mastery. The two guitarists' job on slide (electric and acoustic lap) is a real treat that will please even the more "difficult to please" blues lover, and Gina Leigh's singing is comparable to the great masters of the past. Best tunes: House of doll, Mansfiel road, the cover of the all time classic Shake 'em on down, and most of all the stunning original You can't make somebody love you. I liked it so much that the first thing I've done, as soon as I came back home, it was to buy the other two albums available! Five stars +!!

Delta Moon is centered around, Gina Leigh on vocals and percussion, Tom Gray on vocals, lap-style guitar and keyboards and Mark Johnson on the bottleneck guitar. The trio is assisted as needed by Tommy Dean on bass, Charles Wolff and Gerry Hanson on drums and Scott Callison on percussion. The song selection is a mixture of covers from Son House, Fred McDowell and Willie Dixon as well as some Delta Moon originals. The performance is excellent in all respects from the guitar work down to the vocals of Leigh and Gray. The disc opens with a refreshing take on Son House' "Preachin' Blues" where the vocals of Leigh, in my opinion, shine bright. Gray takes his shot at vocals on the original "House of Dolls" and from those two opening tracks you're hooked. And, while one can quibble as to whether we need another version of Dixon's "Wang Dang Doodle" I must say that as tired as that number is, Delta Moon, with the vocals of Leigh and the slide work of Gray, make it sound fresh and exciting. This is a top-notch indie release which is highly recommended.

I had the privlidge of seeing Delta Moon perform at a small club attached to a bowling alley. There was probably 20 people there and Delta Moon kicked ass. Towards the end of the set when Gina Leigh and the boys belted out "Preachin' Blues", I was at church for the very first time in years...I was a jumping up and down. The only problem I have is I don't know which CD I like better, this one or their sophmore effort "Delta Moon Live". These guys are the best thing happening in music today. With the slultry Gina on vocals, the twin lap and bottleneck slide attack and the tighter than tight bass and drums, just try picturing Little Feat with Robert Johnson and Susan Tedeschi (Gina's better) in the band playing Beggar's Banquet in a swamp with everybody drunk, stoned, dancing and a grinning and a hooping and a hollerin'. Trust me, buy this and their live CD and you will not be disappointed, but you still won't be as cool as me because I saw them live and intimate.

There's not a dud track on this whole disc. Everything is gutsy, energetic blues, brought to life by Tom Gray's riffs and his vocals with Gina Leigh. Get it . . . you will NOT be disappointed.

I saw Delta Moon at the Harvestmoon Bluesfest in Conyers, Ga. Labor Day Weekend 2002. They kicked off a 3 day festival that included some of the best blues acts of today. (Tab Benoit, Jimmy Thackery, Tommy Castro and Michael Burks just to name a few)
I had never heard of them and wasn't expecting much. They were the first group to perform and when they finished in my mind they were the best act I saw that weekend. Every group that played after them I kept saying to myself "Delta Moon was Better."
The twin slide guitar work of Tom Gray and Mark Johnson is unbelievable and will leave you in amazement. Gina Leigh on vocals was awesome and her dancing is the highlight of a live show. The Drummer and Bassist were two of the best I've heard. I was hooked on them after they played Mansfield Road, Shake Em' On Down and Jelly Roll which appear on this CD. Buy this CD! It is the best Blues CD I have heard in quite along time. The only thing better is to catch them Live. If they come anywhere near you don't hesitate to go see them. They put on a awesome show!

I have watched this band for two years now and have seen them just become better and better. Tom's slide guitar and Gina's vocals are top notch.
If you want a great album whith new twists to the Blues get this album and be on the look out to see this band.

*This* is the reason why it's well worth the time to seek out indie bands instead of blindly accepting the tunes spinning out of the FM band. The mix of songs stirs up a range of emotions - you'll want to get up and dance with Shake 'Em On Down and the sassy Jelly Roll and then lean back, close your eyes, and gently roll your head and sing along to Play Me a Song, Little Blind Boy and You Can't Make Somebody Love You. No doubt you've heard Wang Dang Doodle by a number of artists (Koko Taylor, Howlin' Wolf - even PJ Harvey??). . .this is one of the smokiest versions you'll hear - and you'll want to hear it over and over. The marriage of Tom and Gina's vocals are unrivaled. Truly awesome. We've had the opportunity to see the Moon play live when they've hit Florida. Don't miss it. ...
