from White Rock BC
Born and raised in Manitoba, Canada, Delaney experienced her first love affair with music at the age of 6 and then the dance began. It started with the exploration in her parent’s attic, where she found a dusty old guitar that had only four strings.
That old guitar evolved into her own six string guitar that no longer collects dust. Delaney discovered songwriting and secretly wrote, at 13, her first song titled, 'I Wish'; a song she kept to herself but inside she knew it wouldn't be the last.
Just after her marriage break up, while performing, she had an epiphany, music needed to be at the forefront of her life. That very next night, a near fatal car accident found her clinging to her every breath. From that point on Delaney emerged with a new sound that is hypnotic, breezy, and intensely personal.
Delaney writes a lot of her music from personal experiences and those of her friends. There’s an intimacy to her lyrics and when performed live they live with Delaney and her audience in her performances.
Everything is summed up best by Delaney with her own ‘Mission Statement’ -
Within all of us lies a dream
it’s seed started while we were children
as we grew up some of us forgot
some of us took paths of security
while others somehow learned how to win
We honor the hero's of our day
sports stars, movie stars, music stars
but, where are we?
have we begun to win?
or, does that path tremble us inside
No matter who we are
we all have obstacles to overcome
the question is how
have you found your answer yet?
For me, it’s baby steps
honor myself, love myself
enjoy the journey to the wins.
let go to my creator
but, most of all, JUST BELIEVE.
Delaney currently plays a 1967 Gibson Hummingbird guitar and a six string Aria guitar.
She resides in White Rock, BC in Canada when she is not on tour or recording.
