Since forming in 2009, Nashville- based string band Della Mae has established a reputation as a charismatic live act comprising of some of the finest players in bluegrass, Americana and beyond.
Each member brings distinct elements that make Della Mae such a beloved band. Together they have a completely original style: sensitive yet assertive, intense yet playful, steeped in tradition yet undeniably current. Versatile instrumentalists and vocalists, they draw from a bottomless well of roots influences to create a vibrant original music that conveys expansive musical vision. With timeless lyrical truth-telling and an unmistakably contemporary sensibility, they stand alongside such roots-conscious acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers and Hurray for the Riff Raff.
Della Mae is composed of Celia Woodsmith (vocals, guitar), Kimber Ludiker (fiddle, vocals), Jenni Lyn Gardner (mandolin, vocals), Courtney Hartman (guitar, banjo, vocals) and Zoe Guigueno (bass, vocals).

“never failing to deliver punch, soul and emotion in equal measure_ rootsy, prayerful, spiritual almost-a statement of purpose and direction”- Pop Matters
