Red Wanting Blue is proudly based in Columbus, Ohio, but could be America’s local band. For years, singer and songwriter Scott Terry has gone about logging thousands of miles throughout the nation’s heartland, leading the group through hundreds of shows and making fans one at a time.
With positive word of mouth following the band from town to town and an unwavering ambition to keep on traveling, Red Wanting Blue soon developed an exceedingly devoted following in and around the Midwest, where Red Wanting Blue began selling out clubs typically reserved for national names.
In 2010, following several self-released albums, Red Wanting Blue signed its first record deal and in 2012 released From The Vanishing Point (Fanatic Records/Caroline/Capitol) which went on to debut in the Top 10 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and earn press from Rolling Stone and NPR and appearances on VH1 and The Late Show with David Letterman.
Touring in support of From The Vanishing Point in 2013 has brought Red Wanting Blue to the rest of the US and Canada, where Terry’s passionate and poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, let the band’s newest fans in on tunes that could only have been written by a man who has lived life on the road.
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 this band’s unshakable sound.
Red Wanting Blue is currently recording the follow-up to From The Vanishing Point with a projected release in the spring of 2014.
