Delicate Cutters

The music from Birmingham's Delicate Cutters is described as a despairing, (yet hopeful), heart-string tugging, haunting effort. The group is fronted by Janet Simpson, whose song crafting is a strange mix of appalachian folk, country, and pop.

Kevin Nicholson's Irish tinged folk stylings on fiddle soar above Pete Szelenbaum's crunchy, warbling guitars. Chance Shirley alternates between static and percussive style of drumming and filling in on bass guitar while Brian Moon leaves his usual position as the melodic root of the band to play pinefully folky accordian and pump organ. Simpson rounds it all out with her song sketches on acoustic guitar, pianos and organs.

Delicate Cutters have appeared on stages throughout the Southeast. Their latest CD is "We Are Not Lovers".
