“The Radio Reds came together in early 2011, a natural evolution of Stephen’s acoustic album he recorded on Garageband in a dorm room. It was incredibly organic and truly beautiful how the band came into being, and it became something much bigger than any of us had intended. The band really got legs when Stephen’s brother joined on bass, bringing not only the quality or the art, but also the love in the band to a new level.
We did everything we thought you were supposed to do. Record EP’s, do a split 7”, do some touring near and far, and have fun! We are really incredibly lucky to have grown the we did, seen the places we saw and have met such wonderful people here in NC and abroad. It’s incredible that music has brought us so many friends around the country, and even some special ones overseas.
In the last year we had shed a handful of members, turned over replacements and are now at that point once again. It’s gotten to where stability is a void, and every time we get ready to move on to new music and touring, we have to rebuild yet again. The Radio Reds book is closing, and we have decided to read the writing on the wall and accept it. There’s a combination of practicality at play, as well as a loss of energy and an eye on the future.”
