Made up of Jeremy Ezell (Lead Vocals, Guitars, Keys), Torin Degnats (Drums), and brothers Sean (Vocals, Guitar, Keys) and Rex Crawford (Bass), The Well Reds are an Atlanta based quartet gaining recognition for their sophisticated and honest alternative pop rock sound. These well-dressed southern boys boast a sound reminiscent of One Republic, Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, Coldplay and American Authors. Known for their infectious melodies and polished live performance, The Well Reds have the ability to perform and engage a large and diverse audience letting their natural and authentic chemistry shine on stage. They have opened for reputable and national touring acts such as Hot Chelle Rae, Parachute, Daughtry and Minus The Bear, proving that they can hold their own. With the help of Zach Odom and Kenneth Mount, known for his work with Cartel, Mayday Parade and All Time Low, the Well Reds released their debut EP, Violet, in 2011. The EP features relatable and uniquely distinctive songs that tell of the seasoned musicians’ life experiences and inner energy. Title track “Violet” is an emotional and timeless pop anthem combining deep piano harmonies with powerful vocals that reinforce strong lyrical composition. Since their inception they have achieved many accolades such as becoming a finalist in the Season 1 OurStage Panel as well as being announced as winners of the New Music Seminar LA 2011 “Live At Roxy” Competition. Producing thoughtful and consciously aware pop music, The Well Reds have been heavily involved in making an impact beyond music. Similar to the way they have engaged with audiences on stage, they have contributed to organizations such as the Songs For Kids Foundation and Rock By The Sea, dedicated to supporting charities that provide direct services to those in need. Now The Well Reds are preparing for their forthcoming full length album, Volume. Recorded with the help of Grammy Award winning hip hop producer Joseph Prielozny, The Well Reds have found a happy middle ground and distinct sound pallet for each song. The record is authentic and cautiously optimistic, covering the highs and lows in the life of touring musicians. They have tailored cautiously optimistic tunes with and well crafted videos such as “Carousels” and “BPM (I Feel Rhythm)” that impress and garner admiration.Have I piqued your interest? Good.
