In the years since vocalist and songwriter Scott Terry formed Red Wanting Blue, the band has gone on to establish itself as a quintessential example of American perseverance and hard work, building an exceedingly loyal fanbase based on non-stop touring, all without any industry support.

Known for making instant fans of the uninitiated with one of the most engaging and passionate live shows on the road today, Red Wanting Blue found even bigger audiences after the release of its 2012 "From The Vanishing Point" album, which landed in the Top 10 of Billboard's Heatseekers chart and at #1 for the band's home region.

    In the years since vocalist and songwriter Scott Terry formed Red Wanting Blue, the band has gone on to establish itself as a quintessential example of American perseverance and hard work, building an exceedingly loyal fanbase based on non-stop touring, all without any industry support.

    Known for making instant fans of the uninitiated with one of the most engaging and passionate live shows on the road today, Red Wanting Blue found even bigger audiences after the release of its 2012 "From The Vanishing Point" album, which landed in the Top 10 of Billboard's Heatseekers chart and at #1 for the band's home region.

    Appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live, and NPR's Mountain Stage followed, and while the band continues to reach new and bigger career milestones, Red Wanting Blue is also staying true to its roots. This is evident on the upcoming new album "Little America," the band's most personal and promising recording to date.

    "Little America" celebrates a community spirit Red Wanting Blue shares with its audience that goes beyond fans who simply give back the passion that comes off the stage. Red Wanting Blue's hard work is matched by fans who work hard, too. It's not unexpected for members of this growing legion to take days off of work and cross state lines to follow the band, to learn just-written tunes from wobbly YouTube videos, and to sing every word at every concert.

    Just prior to recording "Little America," Red Wanting Blue wrapped up over two years of touring that brought to the rest of the nation what the band's long-time followers in the middle of the country already knew about. Packed rooms and sold-out performances throughout the U.S. and Canada proved that Red Wanting Blue wasn't just a regional phenomenon. It also gave band leader Terry some newfound perspective on his art and his profession.

    "There are several reasons why this album is called 'Little America,'" he explains.

    On a white-knuckle drive from Salt Lake City to Denver through a Wyoming snowstorm in the early winter of 2013, the band's converted mobile home nearly hit a jackknifed tractor-trailer.

    "The truck came to a halt just before getting to us," Terry remembers. "There was debris everywhere and we sat in awe for a moment before we maneuvered around the wreckage and slowly made our way down the mountain. We pulled off at the first truck stop we saw -- it happened to be named 'Little America.'"

    "Little America" also represents an ideology that stems from Terry's childhood.

    "As a child, America was the most enormous thing I knew, and as I got older, it became an epic and unconquerable wilderness that I thought I would spend my whole life discovering. My relationship with America has gotten so much more intimate than I ever could have dreamed. It's 'Little America,' like the nickname you can only give to someone after you've really gotten to know them."

    Terry also acknowledges the influence of Simon & Garfunkel's classic song "America" on the album, and his life in general.

    "I started playing music to get to see this country through the eyes of a rock n' roll band," he says. "'And we walked off to look for America' is one of my favorite lyrical images ever. 'We walked off to look for America?' But, aren't we already here? I suppose so, if it's just a name of a place. But it's so much more than that."

    Terry continues, "I'm trying to experience the America I romanticized from the lyrics of rock n' roll songs. I wanted to know what it felt like to 'pull into Nazareth' like The Band's 'The Weight' described. 'On the road again, like a band of gypsies, we go down the highway,' 'Baby, we were born to run,' and on and on and on."

    Terry sums up his connection with these songs and his connection with Red Wanting Blue's fans this way: "These songs are the soundtrack of my life, and it's my calling to give that back with the hope of having our songs be the soundtrack of someone else's."

    The new Red Wanting Blue album "Little America" arrives this summer on July 1st, 2014

    Born in Matthews, North Carolina near Charlotte, Brasher was raised among a family of singers performing in the Baptist Church – albeit one with a twist. “My family is from the Dominican Republic so it was an all-Spanish congregation, much different than you would imagine a white Southern Baptist church to be,” she says. 

    “I’m first generation, so we only speak Spanish to one another. What that did was force me to be diverse in every realm. That varied background translated into my influences and how I write,” says Brasher, who came up studying the powerful spirituals of Mahalia Jackson and the close harmonies of Lennon and McCartney.   

    She got her showbiz start appearing with her family on local televangelist programs, then fronted a series of rock bands in high school. But Brasher found her true creative direction when she moved away to college in Chicago and began studying the roots of American music. 

    Brasher went directly to the source devouring the earliest Delta Blues sides: Geeshie Wiley, Elvie Thomas, Son House, Leadbelly. “And, in a way, that led to Bob Dylan, because Dylan took from all those people,” she says. “I fell in love with Dylan and the way he was able to write pure folk songs – songs for the people.” She soon picked up a guitar and began teaching herself how to play. “What happened was my own songs started flowing out, and they kept coming every single day.” 

    Her material was imbued with the elemental beauty of the Staple Singers’ earliest work. “Pops Staples played these really singular guitar riffs and wrote songs based on that,” she says. “I wasn’t the best guitar player but I knew what he was doing was simple enough to sing and write around. So I started to imitate that.” Evolving her brand of spiritual soul, she found sustenance and further direction in the discographies of great Southern labels like Stax, Fame and Goldwax. 

    Moving to Atlanta, Brasher began performing professionally, fronting a trio and delving deeper into her guitar playing. She began writing instrumentals influenced by The Ventures. In early 2017, she booked a session for her first album with Memphis producer Scott Bomar, the analog recording guru and leader of Bluff City retro soul band The Bo-Keys. “I sought out Scott because I wanted to make a record that was truly me, that didn’t mask anything,” says Brasher. “I wanted the songs to be able to breathe and speak for themselves. That’s reminiscent of how records used to be made and Scott was very much on board with that. He said ‘That’s pretty much all I know how to do.’” 

    In addition to Brasher and her rhythm section, the sessions featured guest appearances by St. Paul and the Broken Bones organist Al Gamble and Bo-Keys horn men Kirk Smothers and Marc Franklin. While the bulk of the recording was tracked at Bomar’s Electrophonic Studio, he and Brasher ventured to other historic Memphis studios, including Ardent to add strings, and Royal, the home of Hi Records, to cut horns.   

    First single “Cold Baby” plays like a lost Etta James Chess classic. “It’s the same story that probably every human has dealt with in a relationship: not feeling appreciated,” she says. “It’s actually one of the first songs I ever wrote -- to hear it fully realized with the beautiful string arrangement is really amazing.”   

    “The music I’ve always loved most has always been about defiance in the face of despair. If I’ve managed to capture some of that feeling with these songs, then I feel like I’ve succeeded.”
