Delaney & Paris / Press

“These two ladies don’t just cross the line of what is “appropriate” or “polite”; they take a battering ram to it. And it is refreshingly hilarious... This dynamically dicey dose of double trouble could have easily pursued a more traditional music career with their skill set, but together, they have found a niche that is uniquely and brilliantly their own, and have formed a beautiful friendship in the process.”

"Delaney and Paris achieve what very few artists (in any genre) accomplish: expressing, openly and honestly, their artistry without gravitating to the lowest common denominator or the substantially bland end of the creative spectrum. Able to be offensive without offending, the pair is not only a refreshing change from the tries-too-hard vs. appeals-to-everyone arena that characterizes the music industry (local or otherwise), but they are also extremely talented vocalists."

"Keep an ear out for Delaney and Paris—they might just knock your socks off. With song titles like “Hipster Douchebag,” “Stop Staring at my Tits” and “Herpes,” the female duo is rocking the acoustic scene. Think of them as Jewel with five shots of liquid anger, or a version of the Indigo Girls if they had starred in Kill Bill, or Ani DiFranco if she were raised by Marilyn Manson."

“[Delaney and Paris] sang dirty acoustic songs in perfect harmony and meter... It was an oddly articulate burlesque, devoid of come-hithers or flirtation; they sang as if they were thirteen years old and had just attended their first awful folk-singer orgy and wanted to tell you about it. The effect was charming, disarming, sexy only in the way that girls that read books are sexy, even as they promised to fuck everyone in the bar, even as they admonished hipsters.”

“[Delaney & Paris] managed to capture the audience’s attention, laughter, and applause throughout the night... These two young ladies are definitely Portland’s very own queens of witty, controversial lyrics. Mix the content of their music with their promiscuous stage presence (don’t be surprised if they offer to make out with you or give you a blow job during the show), and you’re sure to head home at the end of the night either offended, or ready to watch porn.”

“Delaney & Paris are a comedy duo that sing, with a brazen coyness, the lyrics to their orginal and all sexually explicit songs. Just when you think – no they did not? – well yes, yes they did just put that nasty dirty thought into a melody that is now stuck in your head for the rest of the night.”

“[Delaney & Paris'] lyrics show life's downward spirals all the way to the pick me up of finding religion. [Delaney & Paris] are a duo that sing songs about sex, making fun of hipsters, and just a tad bit more sex. This pair has song titles such as “Stop Staring at My Tits” and “Hipster Douche Bag.” Definitely a fun group to watch, each wore different outfits like a nun or scandalous lingerie, which made for an appealing show.”
