Delta Spirit has a reputation for no-holds-barred rock 'n' roll. And that notoriety just makes this intimate, solo acoustic set with singer and songwriter Matt Vasquez all the more powerful.

Beginning with the raspy, emotional plea of "California," a song from Delta Spirit's 2012 self-titled (and third full-length) album, Vasquez channels his inner Dylan, all piston-powered strumming and harmonica. Alternatively, on "Empty House," also from "Delta Spirit," he sounds a little like a more world-weary but still fully wailing Springsteen. "How could one little speck make a difference to the rest?" he asks. The answer is in his torched voice and the bitter honesty of his story.
