Red Wanting Blue
Red Wanting Blue
Led by singer-songwriter Scott Terry, Red Wanting Blue is proudly based in Columbus, Ohio, but might as well be America's local band. For years, the group had been hiding in plain sight as Terry went about logging thousands of miles on the road throughout the nation's heartland, making fans the hard way - one at a time.

With only the aid of word of mouth, hard work and perseverance, Red Wanting Blue has established an exceedingly loyal following in and around the Midwest where the band regularly fills clubs normally reserved for bigger names.

Terry's passionate and poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, are the kind of tunes that could only have been written by a man who has lived this kind of life on the road. It's these songs and Terry's moving delivery of them that knocks 'em dead, but leaves 'em talking. Most importantly, it keeps 'em coming back for more.

Traveling with Terry are band mates Mark McCullough (Bass Guitar, Vocals), Greg Rahm (Keys, Guitars, Organ, Vocals), Eric Hall Jr. (Guitars, Lap Steel, Mandolin, Banjo, Vocals) and Dean Anshutz (Drums, Percussion, Glockenspiel), who together build the unshakable rock powerhouse that has helped bring Red Wanting Blue to nationwide attention after all of this time.

Red Wanting Blue's latest studio recording "From The Vanishing Point" is a coming-of-age album for the band and is its first to be recorded for a label after several self-released records. The album sheds some of Red Wanting Blue's small-town sensibilities as it evolves into the world-class rock n' roll outfit that audiences have believed in for years.

The album marks an official move to the national stage for a band that will always remember where it's from.
A Lion Named Roar
A Lion Named Roar are men. Men that make pop music drenched in blue collar sweat and moral fiber. Although you'll hear hushed sanctions of influence like The Killers and The Jayhawks, there are no apologies involved, because men don't apologize.

"Foreign Land", their EP due out November 27th, is A Lion Named Roar's complete story to date, a band that has harnessed their sound that ultimately landed them at Nigel Lythgow's feet for FOX's "Americas Next Greatest Band".

Chris Jackson's voice binds these men together in a chinook of rarefied falsetto and powerful words that surely gave birth to A Lion Named Roar's non de guerre. Residing in the birthplace of bands like My Morning Jacket, Palace, and Ben Sollee, A Lion Named Roar's time is now.

"...the band's steely intensity recalls the moody rock of The National, before leaping into a high-energy chorus that's halfway between The Killers and "Summer of '69."" – MTV Music
