The music industry is a destructive animal where even the fittest isn’t guaranteed unscathed survival. That means indie rock band Red Wanting Blue is rare indeed. A quarter-century of steady artistic growth is virtually unheard of in the volatile world of rock music, whether it’s an underground band struggling to find the key to success or a multi-million-selling supergroup buckling from the excesses of fame. Red Wanting Blue, formed in 1996 in Athens, Ohio, is comprised of Scott Terry on lead vocals, tenor guitar, and ukulele; Mark McCullough on bass, chapman stick, and vocals; Greg Rahm on guitar, keyboards, and vocals; Eric Hall on guitar, lap steel, and vocals; and Dean Anshutz on drums and percussion. Together the five musicians have forged a creative path that grows and expands with each successive recording. By gradually morphing from self-sufficient, independent outfit to skirting the mainstream without losing underground cred, Red Wanting Blue earned the right to enjoy the benefits of longevity. The band’s music followed suit. Take melodic heartland rock ‘n’ roll sprinkled with dashes of down-home Americana and dip it in the modern, metropolitan rock world. Then add muscle, from a robust rhythm section to the full-throttle vocals of front man Scott Terry. The results are truly a music industry story worth telling.

Red Wanting Blue is:

Scott Terry (Vocals, Tenor Guitar, Ukulele)

Mark McCullough (Bass, Chapman Stick, Vocals)

Greg Rahm (Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals)

Eric Hall (Guitar, Lap Steel, Vocals)

Dean Anshutz (Drums & Percussion)

The Trews

Emerging out of Hamilton, Ontario in the early 2000s, hard rock combo the Trews earned a reputation as one of Canada’s hardest-working bands, notching hundreds of shows a year and breaking through to the mainstream with the 2003 Juno-nominated hit single “Not Ready to Go” from their gold-certified debut album House of Ill Fame. A hooky mix of alt-rock edge and melodic, riffy swagger, the quartet became a chart staple, earning accolades and legions of fans with albums like 2005’s Den of Thieves and 2014’s eponymous release. Following a 2016 retrospective release, the band returned in 2018 with their high-energy sixth album Civilianaires.
