Red City Radio


Oklahoma City, OK

In late 2005 I had given up on music. I was feeling uninspired and jaded celebrating my new found self pity with healthy doses of cynicism and bourbon. I even started to
contemplate the unimaginable possibility of selling all of my musical gear in addition to my beloved vinyl collection. For no other reason than I thought I didn’t need it anymore. Then we started Red City Radio.

This band is a result of four individuals coming together for their collective good. We’ve all fronted our own bands. We’ve all been stage center with guitar in hand belting out the songs we wrote at the show we booked, hoping to sell some shirts we designed. The difference now is that we as a collective are greater than the sum of our parts. We are all in, all of the time. No chief songwriter. No ego trips. No unilateral decisions. We are a unit, a machine, a brotherhood. And at the end of the day is there anyone else you would want to spend 100,000 miles on the road with? If you’re reading this you now know where we are coming from. And if you listen to our music you’ll know who we are. Cheers.
