We receive lots of submissions at the Deli, but the latest from Bay Area duo Ramon and Jessica has really made my ears perk up (I am a sucker for boy & girl duets). Comprised of violinist Dina Maccabee and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Olsen, the duo has brought a quirky and gorgeous blend of indie folk to the SF scene for many years, collaborating with a revolving door of local musicians and releasing two albums, Ramon & Jessica and Handyman’s Honeymoon.
Ramon and Jessica have just released their third album, Fly South, enlisting the help of friends, a few Casio keyboards and toy pianos to create a completely unique album. Stream it here. “Waltz #3 Where the Coffee Becomes Wine” and “The Words You Know” are my two favorites, but the whole album is truly beautiful. Watch them perform "Diamond in the Sky," off Fly South, below or here.
