"Jesse Redwing - Comin On"

It's not often you hear new bands covering a classic-rock sound like Sydney-based Jesse Redwing (they're a three-piece that goes under the lead vocalist's name), and that's because not everyone can pull it off. With "Comin' On", the first-ever track from the brand-new group, though, not only are they pulling it off, but they're knocking it out of the park. From the second the debut effort drops in all the way to its last note, it drips with energy, and if you're at all a fan of The Black Keys, you're going to instantly gravitate toward this sound and act. - Chad Hillard of

"Sydney Blues Upstart Jesse Redwing Signs With Create/Control"

Ascendant bluesman Jesse Redwing has leveraged his growing renown into a deal with renowned indie label Create/Control, putting pen to paper on the signing as he prepares to unleash killer new single Round It Goes into the world.

Listening to the blistering new track, it's not hard to see why Create/Control would put its faith in Redwing's potential — he and backing band, the Real MVPs, have crafted a raw, infectious, driving and wholly impressive song that carries elements of the troubadour's musical development grounds of punk and rock but nonetheless sits more than capably next to any of his peers in the contemporary blues scene.

"I wasn't born to the blues," Redwing said in a statement. "But it found me somehow and now there's no turning back."

Round It Goes, produced by Stephen Mowat, is something of a teaser for what's still to come from Redwing and the Real MVPs this year, as the band prepare to release an as-yet-untitled studio full-length before the calendar flips over to 2017.

Round It Goes is available now. Give it a spin below, and forget what it's like not having Jesse Redwing in your life. -

"PREMIERE: Jesse Redwing rehashes the seeds of rock ‘n’ roll history on Crawlin’ Up The Walls"

Returning to the original seed of rock and roll, stemming from the pure roots of the blues, Jesse Redwing and his crew (Nick Meredith on drums, and Brendan Clark on bass) have been nurturing the souls of many at packed-out gigs around town as of late. The Sydney-based trio of blues hustlers are creating some contagious grooves, with a soft rock and roll edge that fuses together deep-rooted Chicago blues oracles such as Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters, with British rock mimics ala The Rolling Stones.
What is so refreshing about Jesse Redwing’s item is so very few contemporary artists are digging up a new flavour of the blues with much conviction – a genre that desperately needs the dust blown off it’s vinyl recordings and splashed out into the audio world once again. If you’re a fan of The Black Keys, you’ll muster an easy jam to this musical offering.
While their discography only consists of a couple of single releases, the trio managed to score the support gig of Cold Chisel at their Hunter Valley show at Hope Estate last December, which pays respect to their live endowment.
Their recent drop Crawlin’ Up The Walls was mainly recorded live with fellow producer Stephen Mowat (Ali Barter, WILSN) at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne. The song also features Oscar Dawson from Holy Holy sliding in on rhythm guitar. The foundation behind the jam begins with a simple catchy guitar riff based on a classic 12 bar blues progression wavering in and out of subdued, sensual bridges and steady rock climbs with guitar solos that are almost Hendrix-worth. Yet there remains a level of simplicity, re-emphasising a broad appeal with easy rhythms and authentic lyrics.
The meaning behind the tune can be loosely applied to anything mischievous – whether it is having a cheeky boogie at your local, or expressing your flirtatious frustrations with a love interest. “I got you stuck in my crawl / so fine I can’t ignore / believe me my heart is raw / waiting on your heart to call,” is just a taste of this.
The accompanying video watches Redwing doing what he does best, grooving it out to his own musical testaments. With a grainy film resolution that duplicates with the scratchy production true to the tracks’ early roots.
Crawlin’ Up The Walls will leave your musical libido yearning for more, which are currently in the process of being birthed in the form of an EP. To witness their masterful mischief on stage, which is an absolute must, you can catch the trio at some upcoming gigs:
Friday 22nd April- Yah Yah’s, Melbourne
Sunday 24th April- Brighton Up Bar, Sydney - Happy Mag


Still working on that hot first release.



Jesse Redwing grew up on punk, found inspiration in the likes of Peter Green, John Mayall, Eric Burdon, Eric Clapton and the Stones, then took a step back to "the real shit": Chess Records, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Buddy Guy and Willie Dixon.

Backed by the Real MVPs (drummer Nicholas Meredith and bass player Brendan
'Thumper' Clark), Redwing's real, raw, punk-tinged blues is a live experience to behold,
and producer Stephen Mowat has proved himself capable of capturing their explosive
energy on tape.

Studio recordings have so far come in the form of singles Comin' On and Crawlin' Up The
Walls - the latter recently launched at a packed Brighton Up Bar - and there's a full-length
album set to see the light later in 2016.

A blues revival looks well-and-truly ready to kick off, and Redwing might just be the man to
lead the congregation. Hallelujah.
