Delicate Cutters hail from Birmingham, Alabama. They are made up of Janet Simpson-Templin, Brian Moon, Kevin Nicholson, and Chance Shirley. They got their name from a Throwing Muses song, which took its title from the term used to describe "odd" young people who cut themselves.
Delicate Cutters say about themselves:
"If there were voices from the past who came into your present night through dreams to tell you of your fate tomorrow, they would sing. They would be backed by fiddle, drums, bass, pianos and guitars. They would be woeful, they would be hopeful. They would be cryptic, they would be careful. They would laugh and they would cry.
Delicate Cutters is an effort of exorcising demons, of laments and of fond rememberances. Folksy, romantic songs spun in self-examination and self-deprecating humor range from haunting and passionate to engaging, southern literary story-telling."
Me, I just dig their music. It does have an old timey feel to it, yet it is as fresh as the morning dew. Rock on.
