See the video for Red Wanting Blue’s “Audition” featuring actual fan-filmed footage!



“White Snow” is the latest single from Red Wanting Blue’s new album “From The Vanishing Point”


Columbus, Ohio’s Red Wanting Blue has released the video for “Audition” from its just-released studio album From The Vanishing Point.  The clip was shot at a hometown gig at the Newport Music Hall on October 13th, 2011 and in addition to eight professional videographers, the clip was also shot by the band’s fans.  Encouraged to shoot the song with their smart phones, fans were then asked to send in the footage.  Lots of these submissions made it into the final clip.  It’s just another way that Red Wanting Blue engages its loyal audience and gives them a chance to be part of it all.

The fans are generous too, helping Red Wanting Blue achieve a career milestone as From The Vanishing Point made its Billboard debut in the Top 10 on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart.  From The Vanishing Point is the band’s first album of new songs since 2008’s These Magnificent Miles which was re-issued in 2010 after Red Wanting Blue signed with Fanatic Records, an EMI/Caroline-distributed record label based in New York City.  The album’s latest single “White Snow” has just been released to radio around the country.

Red Wanting Blue has amassed a loyal following in and around the Midwest since being formed by its leader, songwriter and vocalist, Scott Terry while in college in Ohio in the late 90’s.  Fans of the band are used to its records being “released” when they are manufactured, so a proper record label set up time was something new for them.  To appease Red Wanting Blue’s followers, the label posted a Soundcloud stream of the album ahead of the release date, which has since amassed nearly 150,000 track plays.

Red Wanting Blue will return to one of its strongholds, the House of Blues in Cleveland, for a headlining show on February 4th, a return to World Café Live in Philadelphia is scheduled for 2/19, and then it’s back to NYC to headline Rockwood Music Hall on February 22nd.  The band’s last performance in NYC was also a sold-out show.  Red Wanting Blue is scheduled to perform several times on the 2012 edition of The Rock Boat sailing from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico from March 1st through the 5th as well.

Scott Terry of Red Wanting Blue is available for interviews.  Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
