Red Light District

Red Light District

 Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Red Light District is a great new band that writes its own original music but also has an extensive cover repertoire, and is looking to use their unique blend of classic rock, alternative, and indie influences to take the Baltimore music scene and beyond by storm.


What started as a couple of friends just having a good time making music together in the summer of 2007, has now evolved to become a fully-loaded song-producing machine. The triumvirate known as Red Light District has exploded onto the Baltimore area music scene with their original combination of classic rock influences and modern alternative elements, and is looking to expand even further. The foundation of Red Light District is kept in place by primary songwriter Tom Sless (guitarist/vocalist), with the powerful rhythm section of Aaron Sless (bass) and Christian King (drums) holding down the backbeat. The long list of influences of each member of Red Light District helps to create a unique sound that has not been heard before on the Baltimore area music scene.

In May 2009, Red Light District’s eponymous four-track EP was released after being recorded at Sheffield Studios in Phoenix, Maryland. This EP offers to listeners exactly what Red Light District has worked so hard to refine: a blend of the individual musicality of each member of Red Light District to form a new, unique style of music. However, the recording only offers a glimpse of what Red Light District is truly about, as the true musicianship and creativity of the band is seen in much greater depth during their live performances.
