It was only a matter of time for a project like ‘Say Darling’ to come together…a band of old friends and road warriors - a super group of sorts - from the New England Roots Rock and Americana scene. 

Grammy Nominated singer and songwriter Celia Woodsmith – of the acclaimed bluegrass band ‘Della Mae’ – and critically lauded guitarist Chris Hersch of the Alt. Country Rock band ‘Girls Guns & Glory’ – took the opportunity to form the band they always wanted when both tenures with these international touring acts came to a close.

Welcome to ‘Say Darling’.

Country, R&B and Blues may be the backbone of the band, but make no mistake, ‘Say Darling’ rock out. Powered by Woodsmith’s straight-from-the-depths vocalizing and Hersch’s finger-flying fretwork (and fortified by vintage Hammond organ tones and rhythm-ready drums) this gutsy ensemble embraces its roots yet keeps its feet firmly in the here-and-now.

Blending distinctive original songs with classic tunes that pay homage to a shared musical heritage, ‘Say Darling’ evoke the funky drive of Little Feat, the moving vocals of Bonnie Raitt and the instrumental prowess of the Tedeschi-Trucks Band while maintaining a firm identity of its own.
