Biography

In the winter of 2011 in the low lying valley of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, Charles Davis and Christiana Bartolini inadvertently discovered they were both searching for a new music project to pursue. Christiana, lead vocalist, brought her laptop and a bag of various percussive instruments and along with Charles, pianist & guitarist, skillfully utilized those staple instruments and together began combining respective rough drafts of future compositions. They soon formed a sound varying between "woozy dream pop," "eerie folk," and beyond. Fast forward to the spring of 2011- Charles and Christiana had numerous completed but stripped down songs, and felt it was time to bring new perspectives into the group to help thicken and broaden their sound. In June of 2011, the stars perfectly aligned and Christiana & Charles effortlessly found three new members- Dirk Dekker (bass/guitar/drums), Andrew Sgarlat (drums/guitar/bass) and Brittany Thomas (guitar/bass/background vox) and the group soon formed Cherokee Red. The band began playing shows in the summer of September 2011, gaining a quick following of eager fans of all ages and drawing comparisons to the likes of Rilo Kiley, Mazzy Star, Beach House, Florence and The Machine, and Fleetwood Mac. In 2013, after a couple lineup movements, multi-instrumentalist Matt Rattigan joined the band and now the quintet is journeying towards a continual broadening of sound and horizons. With numerous shows and press coverage surrounding the Spring 2013 national release of their self-produced, self-titled debut album, Cherokee Red is excited to release their next labor of love, an EP entitled "432", on October 28th, 2013.
