Red Wanting Blue to hit East coast

Columbus, Ohio’s Red Wanting Blue has the distinction of working with a Grammy®-nominated producer (Jamie Candiloro, who is currently producing his second album with the band), a Tony®-nominated producer (Ken Davenport, who directed the feature documentary film about Red Wanting Blue), and now an Oscar®-nominated producer.

Red Wanting Blue was recently commissioned to write the original song “Magic Man” (STREAM) for the end title sequence of the upcoming documentary feature film, “Unraveled.” The film is co-produced by Oscar®-nominated producer Steven Cantor and is set to premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 17th with additional screenings on June 19th and 20th.

“Unraveled” profiles Marc Dreier, a prominent Manhattan attorney, who, just days before Bernard Madoff captured headlines as the largest Ponzi schemer in U.S. history, was arrested (and later convicted) for orchestrating a massive fraud scheme that netted hundreds of millions of dollars from hedge funds. The film documents Dreier’s period of house arrest as he awaits sentencing, candidly confessing his crimes for the camera.

On the night of the “Unraveled” premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 17th, Red Wanting Blue will be on the other side of the US, headlining the Mercury Lounge in NYC. This stop is part of a recently announced East coast run of dates for the band. This weekend, Red Wanting Blue will headline the House of Blues in Cleveland, a staple venue on its never ending tour schedule and one where the band’s growing legion of fans is at its strongest.

Red Wanting Blue will be previewing songs from its upcoming new studio album at these performances. The as-yet-untitled album is scheduled for release in the Fall. Meanwhile, Red Wanting Blue continues to support its current These Magnificent Miles album, a record about the road – a subject Red Wanting Blue leader Scott Terry recently told a hilarious story about for NPR’s Snap Judgment.

Red Wanting Blue’s latest album These Magnificent Miles is out now. Scott Terry of Red Wanting Blue is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
