Red Wanting Blue, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, and Grady Burton to play FREE show on Fountain Square tomorrow!
Hailed as “Midwestern rock heroes” by American Songwriter, Red Wanting Blue has established themselves as one of the indie world’s most enduring and self-sufficient acts, touring throughout the US and Canada 200+ days per year, while operating largely outside the confines of the traditional music industry.
Red Wanting Blue wanted to figure out a way to incorporate strings and horns, as they had done live at a few of their shows. Agreeing that they needed to find the right place to record such an album, the only answer was the all-analog Peppermint Studios located in Youngstown, Ohio. The result? The Peppermint Sessions featuring alternate versions of five songs from the band's most recent studio album, The Wanting.
On their latest album The Wanting, Red Wanting Blue landed at #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and at #1 for the band’s home region of the Midwest. They have earned raves from Rolling Stone to Esquire, and have made appearances on NPR’s Mountain Stage, The Late Show with David Letterman and VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live in their twenty-year career.
