Delaplane, formed in the winter of 2014, is Brian Caperton, Stewart Muztafago, and Don Townsend. Brian and Stew grew up in Warrenton, Virginia, where they began playing music together in middle school. Don, from Roanoke, Virginia met Brian while both were living in Harrisonburg, VA.
Delaplane influences can be heard in band covers of such artists as Nick Drake, the Beatles, Neil Young, Bon Iver, and Radiohead. Their passion, however, lies in creating an original sound based on their own song-craft, blending folk, jazz, and rock styles.
The trio’s sound – big or intimate, upbeat or slowed-down – reflects tight arrangements and harmonies… and a true love of music.
