US Neo-Soulite Hits Big in Europe

 

Happy Holidays to us! Our newly acquired multi-instrumentalist/singer, Quentin Moore is tickling our fancy right now, filling in nicely on our roster as the most prolific composer yet, bringing an exciting collection of Neo-Soul, Funk, Groove, and R&B to the table. And we aren't the only ones gushing over Moore's work- having returned this Fall from a few weeks long tour through Belarus, Armenia, and Russia, where he played to sold out halls, Europe in general is receiving the music and performance of Quentin Moore exceptionally well. His last album "Black Privilege" ascended to the top 10 in UK Soul Chart and his single "Natural Sista" ranking #1 on UK Soul Chart for six weeks, this American-based star calls Austin, TX his home, making frequent trips to LA for live gigs. We couldn't be happier to start pitching these romantic and light hearted tunes of Quentin Moore for TV and film!

Underground Alt Rock's Harry Cloud Gears Up For New Album

 

Good news for fans of grunge, alternative rock, sludge, and all around weirdo-eccentric, independent singer songwriter style: the inimitable and recently signed Harry Cloud is in the studio for his newest full length album. This ten track piece, fully composed by Mr. Cloud, is being tracked and engineered by Red Queen's prolific artist, Paul Roessler at his very own Kitten Robot Studios in Los Angeles. The album is tentatively being called "I Like Rocks" and is set for release Christmas 2017, because, "I am Santa Claus" as Harry puts it. In the meantime, check out his other projects including Fannyland (for the grungy punks) and Orphan Goggles (for the sweetly sarcastic doom or prog metal fans).

Soft Rock singer/songwriter Rob Friedman is Onboard

We are excited to acquire and be pitching the catchy indie rock tunes of Rob Friedman! In 2013, he enjoyed success with his track "Kiss Divine" appearing on the popular compilation "College Radio DayVol II" in addition to playing most of the instrumentation on Ali Eskandarian's "Nothing To Say (Wildflower)". Friedman also co-wrote "Don't Shed A Tear"- a Billboard Top 10 song recorded by Paul Carrack.

"The undeniable highlight, however, arrives in the shape of a sprawling seven minute live take on 'Art of Almost' by veteran Chicago rockers Wilco, which culminates in a jaw dropping jam session. Another highlight is the sunshine indie pop of 'Fred Astaire' by San Cisco (again, a live take available exclusively on this compilation) and on the other end of the spectrum, the delicate melancholia of 'Kiss Divine' by Rob Friedman, which slowly, subtly and cleverly keeps adding layers of instrumentation to an unexpected sing-along conclusion."

-Ben Walton, Contact Music

"Instrumentally, this is a most accomplished record, with Ali's [Eskandarian] bare acoustic guitar work supplemented by what sounds like a full band but is actually just his award-winning producer Rob Friedman playing everything from keyboards and guitars to drums and bass and making a hell of a believable sound."

-David Kiman on album review for "Nothing To Say (Wildflower)"

LA-Based Drone/Fuzz Guru Dominic Massaro

Dominic has spearheaded a handful of music projects over the years, three of which Red Queen signed publishing for: Motordrone, Graffiti61, and Ranchero Deluxe. Perhaps the most prominent characteristics that transcend all things Massaro, are the warmth and textured wall of sound that carries an uncanny quality of a sonic pummeling, while simultaneously trance-inducing. With his customized amplifier paired with particular guitar appropriation, Dominic has been eclectically carving a name for himself throughout the drone/shoegaze scene in Los Angeles for years.

"CELLARS" Obsessed with Love and 80s Synth-Pop

As Cellars, she creates amazing, synth-driven pop songs that could fit between Duran Duran, Berlin, and New Order on a radio  playlist.  Today Norton enlists friends to fill out her onstage line-up.

Red Queen Signs Gothic Tropic frontwoman, Cecilia Della Peruti

 

Los Angeles' Gothic Tropic introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe playful, but measured and dark with a unique lead guitar and vocal style that recalls catchy elements of pre-punk 70s acts such as Television, and Can. The type of music Gothic Tropic plays is comparable to jazz in the way its creation is approached: its success is based upon each member's ability to collaborate but also individually flourish. 

Red Queen Music Signs New Orleans' The Wave

       

When you hail from the straight-no-chaser city of New Orleans, you have no choice but to be brazenly real. The Wave is a boombing lyricist who made his debut on Lil Wayne’s SQ5 from the Young Money general’s Squad Up mixtape series. “Having an education and coming from the slums of New Orleans, and seeing it all, is all tied within my music. I made a soundtrack for hustlers; music to inspire growth in a myriad of facets. Wherever you are, Million Dollar Day represents the real American dream that you don’t read about. It’s all about making it out of the trap. It’s about resonating with everybody that has struggled in life. I’m trying to do it for my generation and just be a different type of artist and give a different type of outlook and not just some glorification, you feel me?”

They have chosen to pool their diverse talents to form what is now Catahoula. The sound of Catahoula encompasses all of their experiences and styles - New Orleans blues, folk harmonies, jazz, and old fashioned 1960s rock and roll.

Learn more about Catahoula by visiting their website.

"Seasoned southern rock outfit Catahoula demonstrate large chops, especially on vocals, presenting a slick and appealing, though at times gritty and downhome vibe with gospel and even theater overtones. 'Big Mamou' cooks with Cajun soul as Pamela Clay really belts on lead vocals. The pop/rocker 'Second Sight' displays Alabama-style chant vocals and killer bass and flute. Cajun flavor returns with 'La Boo Kay Bah,' putting you up to your eyeballs in swamp water. The band's pro experience oozes from these recordings." - Music Connection [8.2/10]
