“Delightful Squalor created total magic onstage.”
— OBAN TIMES
Delightful Squalor is way of life; a celebration of ‘less is more’, sweet and savoury songs that fill your heart with the unbearable lightness of being. It joins the seasoned talents of singer song-writers Lake Montgomery of Paris, Texas and Cera Impala of Flagstaff, Arizona. An authentic American duet, these ladies provide honeyed harmonies you can hope to taste laced with original songs steeped in jazz, blues, country, gospel and folk. armed with 5 string banjo, guitar and ukulele in hand, they help to forget a world gone mad. crafting songs that feel effortlessly timeless.
"Apparently in their “pre-pregnant phase”, the brilliantly-named Delightful Squalor feature Cera Impala and someone who may or may not be called Lake Montgomery, and they are brilliant. “Pre-pregnant” my backside, this is fully-cooked, being held upside-down by its ankles, and screaming like a damn goblin. Aside from looking brilliant and having a blast, their cover of Nina Simone’s “I Put A Spell On You” – doing it with an acoustic and a banjo – is ballsy and astonishingly well executed. Between Montgomery’s deeper range and Impala’s higher but raspy register, it’s a delight to behold. Lovely. "
