Who is red bird?
All the musicians in Red Bird have played concerts and festivals around the world (Spain, France, England, Canada, Italy, China, the US, etc.) Red Bird was formed out of mutual respect, friendship, and genuine love of playing music together. And it really shows in the quality of the performance and the contagious fun they have playing together. They take the stage intending to win the audience by capturing their attention, captivating them, taking them on a journey from the first note to the last.
Fronted by Bre Gregg (vocals) and Dan Gildea (guitar), Red Bird’s sound is led by powerful yet tender vocals with mind-bending guitar features. Bre and Dan are magic together organically sharing the lead in a way that brings both to the forefront. Jeff Langston (bass) and Charlie Doggett (drums) create driving rhythms you will feel. Dancing between soul and roots, their sound is both electrifying and intimate. You will be transported to a dimly lit music club, but somehow feel you are listening in your best friend’s living room.
