Delta Howl are set to release their debut single Reach The Shore. (May 19th) The single was named Single of the Week by Classic Rock magazine earlier this month.
Together less than a year, the band are already flagging up on the radar of music tastemakers and the Black Country duo of Grant Ashman and Mark Neat show all the signs of a musical act ready for the journey ahead.

The duo both grew up in the small town of Dudley, in the heart of The Black Country, England. The pair first met during a live music showcase in the West Midlands over 8 years ago and since then worked diligently on various music projects.
During mid 2016 the duo re-united and spent the rest of that year writing and recording the material that has become Delta Howl.
Reach The Shore is the first single of a 5 track EP which is due to be released in the summer of 2017. “It’s a thought provoking song, something that takes listeners on a journey. We wanted to paint a picture with the song and let the listener really feel a raw emotion” says vocalist Grant.
From the introductory acoustic guitar and hand claps, it’s easy to go along for the ride, with the bands influences of Folk, Heartland Rock and Country on show throughout the track it’s evident to see that the audience will become enthralled to the group choruses and Reach The Shore will become a song that really does get stuck in your head.
‘We have huge ambitions and milestones we want to hit, the passion and belief is there so who knows what can happen in this crazy, exciting world of music’ says Mark.
