Red Wanting Blue is following up two sold out end-of-the-year shows with the launch of a west coast run of dates today in San Luis Obispo, CA. The Columbus, Ohio-based band has been touring non-stop for the past year behind its 2012 album release From The Vanishing Point. The latest run of dates includes Red Wanting Blue’s second voyage on The Rock Boat cruise, which this year also features Brandi Carlile, Good Old War, Scars On 45 and more. The tour wraps with a headlining appearance at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on Saturday, March 9th.

Red Wanting Blue recently showcased songs off of From The Vanishing Point on the long-running NPR radio program “Mountain Stage,” heard on 100-plus NPR affiliates nationwide and now streaming online and available for podcast download.  The episode also includes appearances by Dr. Dog and The Mountain Goats. Video of Red Wanting Blue’s performance of the song “Hope On A Rope” has been made available here:

Red Wanting Blue’s story is a textbook case of local boys making good. Following the release of the band’s From The Vanishing Point album in January, 2012, Red Wanting Blue has seen increased attention paid to the sound that band leader Scott Terry has been bringing to America, and building a growing, devoted following for, over the past decade.  Since signing a record deal after more than a half-dozen self-released albums, Red Wanting Blue has appeared on David Letterman, sold-out Cleveland’s 1300-capacity House of Blues in advance, and seen its first album recorded for a label land in the Top 10 on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart.

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