Red Wanting Blue performs at the next Studio 89
Led by singer-songwriter Scott Terry, Red Wanting Blue is proudly based in Columbus, Ohio, but could be America’s local band. For years, the group has gone about logging thousands of miles on the road throughout the nation’s heartland, making fans the hard way – one at a time.
With the aid of positive word of mouth and an unwavering perseverance, Red Wanting Blue has established a devoted following in and around the Midwest where the band regularly fills clubs reserved for bigger names.
As Red Wanting Blue’s touring schedule has grown to non-stop, and with an appearance on David Letterman to boot, the band is now seeing its following growing throughout the rest of the country as well.
Terry’s passionate and poetic songs, anchored by his powerful baritone, are the kinds of tunes that could only have been written by a man who has lived this kind of 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 the unshakable rock powerhouse that supports Terry’s big voice.
Red Wanting Blue’s latest studio recording “From The Vanishing Point” is the band’s coming-of-age album and is its first to be recorded for a label after several self-released records. The record debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, another testament to the band’s loyal fans.
“From The Vanishing Point,” out now from Fanatic Records (EMI/Caroline), 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 and marks an official move to the national stage for a band that will always remember where it’s from.
Check out their latest single, "Stay on the Bright Side", and then tune in Monday night at 7pm to hear them perform live on WNKU.
