Antara & Delilah

Spanning the decade from 1997 to 2007 Antara & Delilah were a celebrated performing singer-songwriter team on the Santa Barbara music scene. The duo’s songs included wry observations about love relationships, meditations on life's lessons and earnest expressions of hope all of which were captured on four albums: Dua (2000), From Here (2002), Something’s Almost Clear (2005), and Red Barn Sessions (2007). Antara & Delilah were brought together at songwriter's workshop 1997 by Jim Messina (Poco, Buffalo Springfield, Loggins & Messina) who suggested their voices were complimentary. In time, the ladies blended flavors of folk, bluegrass, country and pop to discover the recipe of their sound – bold vocal harmonies with guitars, percussion, and a dash of mandolin. Antara & Delilah were voted Favorite Local Band five years in a row by Santa Barbara News-Press readers poll. Three songs have been included on the Party of Five and Joan of Arcadia DVD releases (Sony Pictures). In 2003, Antara & Delilah joined Messina to form the Jim Messina Acoustic Trio, performing throughout the U.S. to packed houses. Antara & Delilah have also provided backing vocals for performances by Jackson Browne, Michael McDonald, Christopher Cross, Kenny Loggins, Richie Furay and Graham Nash. The duo parted ways in 2007 when Delilah moved to the east coast. They remain great friends to this day.
