Biography

While our TV screens continue to be inundated with reality TV shows and talent contests churning out a slew of new faces famous for being famous -- authentic artists with great original songs do emerge once in a while. Red Letter is that rare gem.

Meet lead singer/songwriter Jessica Tomich and guitarist/producer/songwriter Frank Sorci, the driving forces and creative brains behind Red Letter. As finalists on NBC’s new show STAR TOMORROW (produced by top pop tastemaker and multi-Grammy Award winning producer David Foster) Red Letter is competing to be crowned ‘star tomorrow’ but is shining brightly today and enjoying quite an unexpected ride. While bands across the US frantically rushed to line up for a chance at an audition to qualify for the first round, Red Letter sat comfortably behind the console of their West LA recording studio when they received a phone call from NBC inviting them to be on the show. Why the special invitation? The electrifying performance of their current single “You Don’t Change” on the prestigious Rehearsals.com earned them the attention of some powerful ears. And rightfully so, for Red Letter has already built quite an impressive music portfolio as songwriters and also as performers.

Blending catchy pop hooks with sophisticated and compelling instrumentation, Red Letter's sound strikes a unique balance between youthful energy and wiser, well-traveled souls. Each song offers a rare emotional intensity through its gripping lyrical bite and heartfelt melody. Their music has been heard on a variety of TV shows and films including "Body & Soul" (Showtime), "Brothers & Sisters" (ABC), "Summerland" (The WB), Melrose Place DVD Box (Fox), the indie films “Eleven Minutes Ago” and “Love Happens", as well as in the upcoming feature film "The Contract" starring John Cusack and Morgan Freeman. In addition, they have headlined many of the hot clubs in LA such as The Mint, The Gig, Genghis Cohen, and the legendary Viper Room on the famed Sunset Blvd.

Red Letter’s musical journey is one that goes beyond the notes of a music sheet to paint a life canvas filled with colorful places, serendipitous discoveries and fortunate opportunities. It all began a few years ago when the two met through a mutual friend at a recording session. Jessica was laying down the vocals for her new project while Frank, who had been scouting new artists to produce, was called in to play guitar. The musical connection and creative osmosis was instant and the pair immediately joined forces, writing and recording new songs and touring under the moniker “Sorci & Tomich”. They showcased their talent across the US embarking on Borders Bookstore and Starbucks tours among others and sold thousands of copies of their first CD. Yet, they earned their biggest media exposure and name recognition with their involvement in a very unique charity endeavor that the duo ingeniously and generously created. With deeply introspective song lyrics bringing an intense sense of spirituality to their music, it became obvious that Jessica and Frank could use their art as a healing tool. They went on to perform at various hospitals, addiction facilities and rehab centers across Southern California with the goal of bringing a little hope and soothing comfort to their audiences. The performances were a success and garnered immense press coverage including a segment on Fox 11 News.

With a fan base and industry buzz growing at a rampant pace, it soon became obvious the duo needed to find a more marketable name. For lack of a better idea, they decided to leave their fate up to ……the dictionary! Frank flipped the pages of the Webster’s and randomly dropped his finger on a word. “Red Letter” (defined as “memorably happy”) was thus born.

Ever since, Red Letter has successfully infiltrated our ipods and channeled their way through the worldwide web with their recently released album “Under The Same Hot Sun”. The 11-track album featuring the hit song “You Don’t Change” that catapulted the duo onto our TV screens, is now available in most retail stores across the U.S. including CDBaby, itunes.com and on the duo's website www.Redletterband.com. Their sense of entrepreneurship combined with their undeniable songwriting skill recently culminated in the signing of a new publishing deal with Dimensional Music Publishing. DMP is a world class, full service independent music publishing company with offices in New York, Nashville and Los Angeles and is a sister company of eMusic and The Orchard and was founded with the purchase of the DreamWorks music publishing assets. The songwriting team has been embraced by the A&R community and artists alike and is currently collaborating with and writing for top artists, while recording material for their new album. Named one of the Top 100 Unsigned Bands in L.A. by Music Connection Magazine, Red Letter is one of the first bands invited to launch the website for the critically acclaimed Rehearsals.com (

Lyrics

You Don't Change

Written By: Frank Sorci, Jessica Tomich

Maybe when I said goodbye
I didn’t really let you go
Maybe when I wouldn’t cry
I should’ve let the tears just flow

Cause I’m still choking on this wishbone
I’m going round and round this circle
I never took your NO for an answer
I keep asking

And you don’t change
You bring me back the same old pain
I’ve got to get it through my brain
It’s devastating
You don’t change

Maybe I’m still hoping for
A miracle to come
But maybe there’s no open door
Where I imagined one

Cause I’m still choking on this wishbone
I’m going round and round this circle
I never took your NO for an answer
I keep asking

And you don’t change
You bring me back the same old pain
I’ve got to get it through my brain
It’s devastating
You don’t change

Maybe there never was real love
Just me hoping
I thought I could fix you up
But you’re too broken
I’m not stupid, I’m not numb
This isn’t love
This isn’t love

Prayer For Marian

Written By: Frank Sorci, Jessica Tomich

We said a prayer for Marian
And went about our day
That old sun kept shining down
As her life slipped away
We carried on with dinner
Like the day before
I know she won't be lonely
When she reaches heaven’s door

Thank God Elvis is an angel
Standing by in his blue suede shoes
Close your eyes you can almost hear them singing
“Love me tender, love me true”

We said goodbye to Marian
At the funeral today
All the tires kick up dust
As the hearse pulls away
This old world keeps spinning round
Like it hasn't lost a thing
Should we just be glad for Marian
Up there laughing with the King?

Thank God Elvis is an angel
Standing by in his blue suede shoes
Close your eyes you can almost hear them singing
“Love me tender, love me true”

They'll talk about Las Vegas
They'll shine a light on Lisa Marie
He'll show her how to move those hips
He'll do that thing with his lip

Thank God Elvis is an angel
Standing by in his blue suede shoes
Close your eyes you can almost hear them singing
“Love me tender, love me true”
Thank God Elvis is an angel
He'll be kind, yeah he won't be cruel
Close your eyes you can almost hear them singing
“Love me tender, love me true”

All You Want Is Everything

Written By: Frank Sorci, Jessica Tomich

You’re a spark of light
I have to shut my eyes (sometimes)
You just burn too bright
Cause you’re the chosen one
The prodigal son (you come)
Seeking hope, seeking love

All you want is everything
Every treasure
Under the sun
For the pleasure of one
All you want is everything
Every moment
Searching for more
Of what you’re looking for
All you want is everything

You’re insatiable
You gotta fill that hole (I know)
Cause we’re kindred souls
You need everyone
But when the day is done (you’re gone)
In search of hope, in search of love

All you want is everything
Every treasure
Under the sun
For the pleasure of one
All you want is everything
Every moment
Chasing it down
Can it ever be found?

Bridge:
All you want is everything
Nothing is enough
All you want is everything
Until you’re drowning in love
