Coming on June 25, 2021
Delta Nove’s newest album, Beyond, is a passionate artistic expression of a band at their most evolved level. The double-LP exemplifies the distinctly diverse sound that Delta Nove has honed through two decades of playing together. Delta Nove’s live performances, affectionately dubbed “the D-No Show” by those in the know, is legendary for taking dancers on a musical journey of globetrotting styles. This 16-song, 80-minute studio endeavor takes its inspiration from these live sets, seamlessly blending heavy funk, rootsy rock, samba reggae, afrobeat, and psychedelic explorations.
The musicianship of Delta Nove’s seven-piece lineup shines as strong as ever on this record. And, to add even more depth of sound to the album, the band called upon some of their famous friends they’ve made throughout their two decades of touring. These guest artists include funk trombone legend Fred Wesley (James Brown, Parliament Funkadelic), percussionists extraordinaire Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident, EOTO) and Jiro Yamaguchi (Ozomatli), and contemporary vocal powerhouse Adryon DeLeon (Orgone). Additionally, the D-No Show’s original sax player and fan-favorite Rob Covacevich reunited with his old bandmates for a guest feature on the band’s re-imagination of Fela Kuti’s Upside Down; aptly titled Downside Up.
As its title implies, Beyond is also a bittersweet celebration of the life of Dominic Feedam, Delta Nove’s long-time drummer, co-vocalist, and contributing songwriter who lost his hard-fought battle with cancer in 2019. Thankfully, the basic tracking for this album was completed before Dominic became too ill to perform. Thus, Dominic is present on all sixteen songs, and his performances encapsulated within are nothing short of inspired. The Delta Nove family hopes that this album serves to honor the memory of their beloved brother Dominic, and as a testament to the never-ending pursuit to always go Beyond.
