The Dell Project, hailing from Philadelphia, PA, is an eclectic, genre-spanning, musical assemblage, with its core foundation anchored in a unique quest to break the traditional bounds of a conventional, fixed band arrangement, instead focusing on purely collaborative, fluid group dynamics, writing, recording, and performing with various artists, songwriters, and bands from the Philadelphia region.

Incorporating elements of rock, funk, pop, blues, hip hop, and more, and drawing from our countless musical influences, our hope is to collaborate with local artists and musicians of contrasting genres, backgrounds, and talent, and combined with our own sound, create something unique on a broad sonic palette.
