“I’m an instant fan of Redgy Blackout!”
Stewart Brennan, The Minstral Show
Vancouver’s Redgy Blackout, 2011 Peak Performance Project Top 20 band, are ready for you Toronto! This rockin’ duo (complete with rhythm section) have been developing cabin fever from the winter blues, so they’re looking to create some adventure in Toronto, with their upbeat, intricate and danceable roots-rock. Showcasing at Canadian Music Week many other top notch bands, Redgy Blackout are looking forward to connecting with their kind, and popping up within a whole new contingent of the Canadian music scene! Come on down to their showcase at The Sister, March 21st to get the CMW party started on the right dancing foot! The band would love to meet you, and will have plenty of swag and swill to go with the show. Show Redgy Blackout what you’re made of, CMW, they wanna know!
“I’m on my fifth straight listen to Redgy Blackout and I’m knocked out…This is the stuff I live for; songs revolving around melody and harmony pulled off without a hitch.”
Frank Gutch Jr., F.A.M.E Review
Redgy Blackout is the cream of the up and coming indie roots-rock artists. Like every other band, they write songs, they sing and play instruments, and they tour the nation, but Redgy Blackout stands apart in their passion, animation and energy. They’ve caught a lot of notice with their latest EP, and Singer and multi-instrumentalist Scott Perrie and guitar/banjo player Jeremy Breaks have been perfecting their collaborative craft since they met at an open jam in Vancouver, Perrie entering the music realm early through the theatre and his grandfathers ’61 Gibson J45, and Breaks through growing up in his father’s music store in Prince George. Their musical vision came together with their 2009 debut The Leap, and in 2010 they recorded an EP, entitled Meet You On The Other Side with the popular upbeat track “Like Penguins Do”. Their latest self titled EPwas released in July 2011, produced by Elisa Pangsaeng, mixed by Tom Dobrzanski (Said The Whale, The Zolas) and recorded at Vertical and Blue Wave Studios in Vancouver. In exchange for studio time, members of the band got together to help build a new studio for Dobrzanski. The EP has been getting glowing reviews, and is being played on radio across Canada, CBC and Galaxie Digital Radio.
“This latest EP is a varied mix of styles that I found most appealing. Especially the reflective When You Were A Kid with banjo plucking away in the background, an occasional harmonica and heartfelt vocals. There’s even more passion to be heard in Midnight Lights, a mainly stripped-back acoustic number and the heartfelt Once Knew You.”
