Bio

Perth-based Red Jezebel are about unleash their new single Closer To You. A new track – a taste of things to come from the band’s upcoming recording sessions – will be available as a free download from www.redjez.com for the month of September.

The bizarre journey of Red Jezebel to this point has certainly been one of the more unusal in recent Australian music history. Parting parting ways with major label Warner Music, following their signing to Festival Mushroom Records, saw Red Jezebel return to their indie roots, result in the release of the acclaimed second album How I Learnt To Stop Worrying. The album was a remarkable achievement from a band that had been through its fair share of up and downs. The result was 13 tracks of undeniable songwriting talent, not bounded by any thoughts of genre-fitting or adherence to current musical trends.

A thiteen-year career has also seen the band – consisting of Paul Wood, Mark Cruickshank, Alex Hyman and Dave Parkin - release four EPs and the acclaimed 2004 Revelations album. Along the ride Red Jezebel have also supporting the likes of Garbage, Elbow, Brad, Powderfinger, Something For Kate and The Living End as well as tour the country with Eskimo Joe, Jebediah, Little Birdy, 78 Saab and more.

The new single, like the two album before it, was recorded at Perth’s Blackbird Studio and produced by two-time WAMi award-winning producer Dave Parkin (Snowman, Bob Evans, The Panda Band, The Exploders) who is now also a full-fledged member of Red Jezebel since taking over guitar duties in November 2004.

"Ten years together and it's only album no. 2 for Perth's Red Jezebel. The experience, though, is evident in the confidence of their songwriting and arrangements in this collection of beautifully crafted indie gems. This is melodic rock at its best, with atmospheric swelling sounds, foot-tapping guitar rhythms and carefully layered effects." - 4/5 stars, Paul Smith, The Sydney Morning Herald

"A lot of artists proclaim to paint over a wide canvas of genres, but if Red Jezebel said that to me I would believe them. The thirteen tracks here do in fact hold great variety and a wide range of ideas, instead of just the promise to do so…Excellent guitar work with strong songwriting ensures that this record succeeds. It’s not particularly what they do, but how they do it, that makes this one worth going back to." - Michael Pincott, Rave Magazine

“To these ears, this is musical innovation than comes once in every 1,000 bands, that cannot be described without actually playing it… music so good it makes wading through the other 999 bands worthwhile." - Mike Wafer, Xpress Magazine

“…a clinic on how an album should sound – diverse yet retaining a continuity and punchy yet developed with substance. This is an album that works for your attention and deserves it completely…Red Jezebel are unlucky to release this album so late in the year, otherwise it would have been a shoe in for Album of the Year.” – 9.5/10, Alchemist, Tsunami Magazine
