The songs on Josh Daly's new EP - The New Delta Hymnal, Vol. I - range from the horn-heavy groove of Blessed Be the Bottom to the soft jazz harmonies of Because the One I Love. His music draws as much on the lyricism of mystics as on the American songbook, and as much on the dirt and soul of New Orleans as the poetry of Francis Thompson and T.S. Eliot. Josh has been playing and singing since he was a kid, and has brought together a talented group of young New Orleans musicians to bring these songs to life.
