"Mama Lucky grew up in east Texas in the 1950s. Her mama owned a honky tonk on the Louisiana Texas border and she was reared to live hard, and sing about it. By the late sixties Mama Lucky was fronting seminal Texas rock bands like "Sweet Peter" and "Tar Baby". She spent her formative years kicking around the early Austin music scene, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Shake Russell. She spent a year opening for Willie Nelson in the mid-seventies.
In 1998, she did a self produced album of original songs and covers called "Barricades", recording three songs at the famous Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.
In 1999, she met Jim White, a cult favorite, alt-country singer songwriter, and began working with him. After doing back up vocals on two albums. Jim gave her a big break, by asking her to sing his music on a album he wanted to produce himself.
Jim White created "Mama Lucky", and the album "Permanent Stranger" was released in 2009.
The Mama Lucky Band is an eclectic blend of blues influenced, americana rock. Vocalist Linda Delgado, AKA "Mama Lucky", has her roots deep in the blues music of the southern Texas swamps. Keyboardist Gary Blount has lived all over the world, and his classical influences and unique style, are the base of the creative process. Drummer, J.D. Cowen provides not only a strong bottom beat, but is a master of percussion and the nuances needed to complete the "feel" of the music. Bassist Pat Harvey, sets a perfect groove, and his perfectionist attitude and imaginative bass riffs set the mood. The newest addition, guitarist Mark Hawley is a Canadian native, transplanted to Florida. His hard rock guitar sound rounds out the music perfectly. Add four part harmony and lots of passion and you have The Mama Lucky Band
