SESSION AMERICANA is musicians’ musicians: a cast of top-shelf players, singers, and writers who tour internationally, taking their own songs, plus hundreds more from the American songbook, on the road. Whether you catch Session Americana in a rock hall or on a festival stage, you’ll be a part of the intimate, raucous scene these players  built years ago at Toad, the neighborhood bar where it all began in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Called “bold and brilliant” by The Boston Globe and “transcendent” by The Los Angeles Times, Delmhorst is a veteran of the indie Americana world, with vivid songwriting, soulful delivery, and adventurous arrangements that stretch the limits of genre.

The group, whose members have played with a variety of acts including Patty Griffin, Josh Ritter and the J.

"Session Americana has developed into a traveling medicine show which eschews snake oil in favour of an ongoing grail quest for the perfect collaborative experience." - Hot Press Ireland

Their own songs, as well as those they cover, are at the center of the endeavor, but they also know how to trust the underlying foundation of the song and turn their attentions to one another, listening and playing off whatever transpires ... “— Metroland
