Meet eclectic Philly rock five-piece Seoul Delhi
Bouncing between alternative and classic rock, even frequently incorporating jazz influences, Philly-area five-piece Seoul Delhi makes an impressive introduction with its debut Everything Must Go. The group consists of Ashley Ferrante on percussion, CoCo Brewer on vocals and keyboard, Tucker Hill on vocals, keyboard, and guitar, Chris Rudisill on guitar and Jessie Wexler on bass. Much of the stylistic influence and diversity, however, stems from the pen of the group’s premiere songwriter, Hill, though he’s quick to tell us ”
a big part of our sound now comes from the whole band arranging something together that I’ve written on my own.”
Seoul Delhi was formed in 2012 when he decided to assemble a trio to play with and work on his songwriting. He cites Steely Dan, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Wonder, Guthrie Govan, and John Mayer as influences. That’s a pretty diverse range of artists, and somewhat effectively explains the diversity in Hill’s own songs. The band released its first self-titled demo as a trio in summer 2013, before bringing in Rudisill and Wexler and recording the expansive, Dr. Dog-esque Everything, which came out in August.
Seoul Delhi will be headlining a show at The Fire this Sunday, supported by Tasty Face, Minor Setbacks, and Hanna Paige. They also play Kung Fu Necktie upstairs on November 26th.
