Red Wanting Blue performs “Hope on a Rope” for NPR’s “Mountain Stage”
2012 was year of growth for Columbus, Ohio-based band Red Wanting Blue. Starting in January with a Top 10 debut on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart for its best-selling album to date, From The Vanishing Point, the band supported the album with non-stop touring all year. The “From The Vanishing Point Tour” took Red Wanting Blue on its first west coast tour (which drew triple-digit crowds in markets the band had never been to previously), and to Canada for a string of acoustic support dates in front of theater-sized audiences (who purchased every copy of every CD that the guys had for sale.) Red Wanting Blue also sold out the House of Blues in Cleveland, Lincoln Hall in Chicago, and the Bowery Ballroom, drawing a crowd in NYC five times larger than just one year previous.
In addition to appearances that included its network television debut on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” slots on VH1’s “Big Morning Buzz Live,” NPR’s Mountain Stage and a long-awaited session for Daytrotter, Red Wanting Blue shot an hour-long performance for the Audiotree website that showcased the band live in a way new fans had yet to see. Red Wanting Blue also sailed on The Rock Boat cruise for the second time, sharing the stage with Brandi Carlile, NEEDTOBREATHE, Good Old War, and more, and received media attention from Rolling Stone, MTV, Paste and others.
Instead of taking a break, Red Wanting Blue is now hard at work on the follow-up to From The Vanishing Point. Working once again with producer Jamie Candiloro (REM, Ryan Adams, Luscious Jackson), singer-songwriter Scott Terry spent a week in Candiloro’s Los Angeles studio cutting skeleton demos before convening with the entire band in their Columbus, Ohio warehouse studio to begin the recording process. The album will once again be released by Fanatic Records, distributed by Caroline/Capitol Music Group which is now part of the Universal Music family. No release date has been scheduled.
Red Wanting Blue will take a break from the sessions for two shows this month on April 19th in Toledo at Mainstreet and on April 20th in Pittsburgh at Mr. Smalls. Tickets for both shows are on sale now.
Scott Terry of Red Wanting Blue is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
