Red Wanting Blue
Red Wanting Blue has been called the hardest working rock band in America. This isn't surprising considering leader Scott Terry's decade-long dedication to the road. His songs about its trials, sung in a remarkable radio-ready baritone, are backed by his expert band's shimmering new-classic rock sound. Twelve of these tunes comprise this Columbus, Ohio-based band's first official label release.

These Magnificent Miles was written on the road and is about life on the road. Produced by Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, Willie Nelson, REM) in Columbus and mixed in Los Angeles, the album captures the feel and sound of Red Wanting Blue live — an addictive show that has earned the band a loyal following which stomps, cheers and sings along.

It's an album for all of the musicians who live this way of life and it lifts the veil on what it means to be an underdog in a touring rock band. "There is a romance to this circus life," Terry says. "With a little luck, and a lot of support from the greatest fans a band could have, we hope to ride this open road like a hammer into history.
