Straight On Red

Journeying from Funk to Soul to Rock and back again – Straight on Red are either diverse or just indecisive.

This hot new eight-piece band, whose music combines a distinct Steely Dan/Stevie Wonder vibe with sardonic lyrics inspired by the plight of the modern male, are just about to release their second album, ‘Round 2’, on March 17th 2014.

Their debut album from 2012 attracted much acclaim from fellow musos such as Claire Martin OBE (jazz singer and BBC Radio 3 presenter): “Just downloading your album from iTunes – where have you been all my life?”

The album also did well at the UK Songwriting Contest in 2013, the song ‘Nietzsche Tonight’ winning the jazz category and being shortlisted in Adult Contemporary along with the song ‘On File’ (see video!!).

You can sample and buy both albums on their website:
