A is RED received Top-10′s at the 2010-2011 and 2012-2013 Austin Music Awards including “Best Instrumental Band,” “Best Experimental-Avant Garde Band,” “Best Drummer” and “Best Jazz Band.”

A is RED perform a strikingly transcendent set of genre-defying instrumental music. Featuring compositions from Harvey’s “Light Shines Through” CD (2012) and “A Dance in Red” EP (2009), A is RED create truly original music–subtly combining rock, world, soul, jazz, ambient & classical elements. The ensemble’s musicians come from widely varying backgrounds & influences, from American blues to Indian music, creating a soundscape of many colors. As Alejandro Escovedo put it; “Light Shines Through has a romantic quality with the feel of a dreamy landscape that takes me into a world of colors and sound.”
