Delta 7

diversity + music + community = advocacy 

Delta 7 is a seven-piece post-punk rock band which was formed as a

result of an Arts Connect music course in 2014. The band members have different personalities, talents, and disabilities but their shared love of performing, positive energy and mutual support allows them to create music that is infectious and inspiring. Delta 7 is an uplifting and powerful voice for everyone who feels a little outside of ‘mainstream’ society.

The band is based in Eastbourne, East Sussex, and meets regularly to

rehearse and write original music, supported by professional musicians and a small army of loyal friends and fans. Delta 7 regularly performs live at gigs and music festivals and leads workshops for other people who want to learn about songwriting and musicianship. For any enquiries regarding bookings or any other information please  contact

During the current period of restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the members of Delta 7 have continued to stay connected through weekly online meetings and rehearsals, writing songs together about their experiences throughout lockdown. The band are delighted to have secured funding in 2020 from the PRS Foundation which will enable them to record and release a new album of songs, all of which have been created during lockdown. The band have also recorded a podcast this year which will be released alongside the new album in Summer 2021. 

Delta 7 members have become leaders in a number of our projects, currently steering Being Our Best Selves and hosting Circus Of Sound Cabaret. Lucy and Mikey also advocate accessibility on our digital platforms as our Access Advisors. 

The story of Delta 7 has also been documented in 2 award-winning films, find out more on the Delta 7 Films page

"Delta 7 create a brilliantly atmospheric sound that reminds me of post-punk band, The Fall. Their message reminds us all of the

value of music as a tool of empowerment. We’re proud and

honoured to support the band”

      Mike Oughton, Creative Director, McCann London                         

The album Summer Waves is available via iTunes and Spotify and you can follow the band on Facebook and Instagram.
