Spotlight on Labeling Deloris: Band returns Sunday to Catawba

Band returns Sunday to Catawba
With influences ranging from No Doubt to John Mayer to Guns N’ Roses, the group may seem to be an unlikely combination. But fusing their individual music tastes, Labeling Deloris strives to create a sound appealing to all.
After forming the band while students at Catawba College, Jennifer Reiff (vocal/guitar/ songwriter), Jason Rigney (guitar/songwriter), Brad Rigney (bass), and Andrew Boudouris (drums) headed to Nashville directly after graduation. It was there, in 2006, that they recorded “For the Sake of Deloris” which spawned a self-booked, four-month tour of the country.
This tour took Labeling Deloris back to their East Coast roots in Wilmington, where they have received regional attention. They have been chosen to play in front of audiences of thousands which included mainstay festivals like Wing Fling, Chili Cookoff, and the Azalea Festival.
Labeling Deloris has also performed with Taylor Hicks and Lifehouse at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, S.C., as well as nationally, showcasing at Atlantis Music Festival and CMJ Music Marathon.
Labeling Deloris is a hybrid of rock and pop that is rarely heard in conventional pop music today.
In fact, the name “Labeling Deloris” is a metaphor for the musical sound created versus the way it is perceived; that is to say that while it seems to have a distinct, alt-rock edge, it also produces a popular, long-lasting quality.
Based in Nashville, the band is poised to take over the Southeast music scene.
Released in July 2008, “I Want Everything,” the full-length follow up to “For the Sake of Deloris,” is piquing the interest of audiences throughout the country. The band is touring regionally to support “I Want Everything” and a more expansive tour is being planned. The album is being distributed through iTunes, CD Baby, and MyTracks, and is also receiving airplay throughout North Carolina.
