"Redfish at Whistler"

“Redfish reads the pulse of the crowd and delivers a high energy blend of wicked originals and funky covers that you can't wait to hear again. Our mountain culture is made up of a diverse crew of over 4000 employees and Redfish brings them to their feet every time! They are flexible, professional and above all highly talented musicians that keep us eagerly awaiting their next road trip!”

"CD Review - De Profundis (2008)"

Editor’s note: Dean Gordon-Smith, our Street Sounds CD reviewer, couldn’t very well review his own band’s new album. So, we asked local musician Noel Appleton to be a guest reviewer for Redfish’s recent release, De Profundis.

Quick — name your all-time favourite road trip album. I’ll give you a minute. OK, is it Tom Petty? AC/DC? The Beastie Boys? A healthy helping of Meatloaf, perhaps?

With their sophomore effort De Profundis, Redfish clearly want to take you for a ride.

The Vernon-based foursome announces their intentions with the opening salvos Look On and Breanna, two high-energy dashboard drummers that set the listener up nicely for Citizen.

It’s a soaring, perfect anthem in the tradition of bands like The Outfield (if you’re a bit of a history buff), or a little-known Irish outfit called U2. You may have heard of them.

De Profundis, recorded in part at Silver Star with the help of recording magnates Randy Cantor (Van Halen, Bon Jovi) and Paul Santo (Aerosmith, Ringo Star), is a complete album — a rarity these days.

And there has clearly been effort made to reward anyone who enjoys it from beginning to end.

It moves smoothly from rock-outs (Anteroom) to time-outs (Talk to Me) and ends well with current FM mainstay Polarized — a catchy hum-along, and Lonestar.

In all, 11 balanced tracks on this excellent offering.

Literally, this album is good enough that they could place their radio single at the end, instead of the beginning, despite the trend in music these days of appeasing attention-deficit teens by front-loading a record with radio-friendly tracks and splatter-painting the rest of the album with forgettable filler.

By the time you reach Polarized, you may have already passed your destination in favour of an off-ramp.

Enjoy the drive.

"This Vernon band came to our attention earlier this year with their debut indie release “Silvertonia” which was recorded at Vancouver’s legendary Warehouse studios. We began giving Redfish some feature airplay on “On The Edge” a couple of weeks ago, and since our e-mails have been filling up with requests. With a great combination of music production, songwriting, performing, and fan support, as well as being a local band, we felt it was only fitting to throw our support behind the next great thing to come out of the north Okanagan. Look for Redfish to be on the opening bill for the Okanagan Springs Pure Music Festival."

Timeless. Emotional. Epic. Rock.
Redfish is a band that is fueled by the restless spirit of rock and roll. This is the energy that compels them to stretch and search night after night. Like the most adventurous and bold bands and artists through rock's short span of history, they use their music to connect to something. They want some rock and roll communion.

The band can be considered searchers who respect tradition. Redfish takes chances, but it's all in the name of groove and energy, their common denominator. As versatile and inspired musicians, they know how to stretch, colour, and bring texture to their music. They could be considered new sonic explorers, turning over stones and kicking up dust. The band are also storytellers who will shade an album or show with characters and sounds that reach out and bring uplift, or distant thunder on a flashing horizon. They're all about passion and commitment to their own vision, and that keeps the lifeblood of Redfish's music vital, just hear it for yourself.

Their new album, De Profundis, was produced by Randy Cantor (Ricky Martin, Bon Jovi, Fugees) and engineered by Paul Santo (Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Ringo Star). They recently won Album of the Year at the 2008 BC Interior Music Awards. They have shared main stages with Evanescence, Finger Eleven, Seether, the Trews, Nazareth, Kim Mitchel, 54-40 and the Northern Pikes, to name a few.

Redfish will be touring this winter and into the new year supporting De Profundis. They have just signed a deal with HevyD's Old fashioned Kettle Korn that will put a Redfish song for free download inside one million bags of popcorn nation wide. With deals pending for the US and Europe.
