"Band lures listeners of the street"

Redstone Rising, a hard rock group, plans on touring the southeast this summer - but first, they need to replace their former lead singer, Danny Cahill.

Tonight, the band will perform versus Walcott in a battle of the bands at Caledonia Lounge to benefit Nu�i's Space.

Cahill left the group due to conflicts with practices and pursuing his MBA in business.

Bass guitarist Brian Bumpass, a senior marketing and international affairs major from Flowery Branch, and lead guitarist Stephen Gladney, a senior marketing major from Warner Robins, originally started Redstone Rising under the name Fish Position.

Gladney met the band's drummer, Josh Moreno, a junior from Tifton majoring in history and Spanish, at a dining hall.

"He just sat down next to me and said he played drums," Gladney said.

Tate Henshaw, a senior mathematics and finance major from Rydal, joined as a guitarist after Fish Position's first show.

Cahill replaced the band's first singer. With a new lead singer and a more developed style, the band's name changed to Redstone Rising.

There are several rumors as to the name's meaning. Bumpass said it was because the house where they practice is on Redstone Drive.

"'Rising' because our skills will always be developing, the process is never complete," Bumpass said.

The band's sound is influenced by classic and hard rock groups such as Metallica, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

In Athens, Redstone Rising concerts are usually at Amici's.

"When a band's playing, people notice and just walk in off the street," Bumpass said. "It's not a standard venue."

The members expect their singer to have singing experience and time for rehearsals. - Ashley Davis, The Red & Black

Redstone Rising formed in Athens, GA in 2005 when several UGA students with a passion for music, met one another by a stroke of luck. After collaborating on various musical ideas, the five young men dove into their local music scene. Of course, they started by playing any bar that would book them, for little or no money. Within a year, however, the band began to see progress in both payment and fans. It was at this point the five began to take playing more seriously and released a demo CD in early 2007. Tracks like "Engage" reinforce the band's love of hard rock and metal, while other songs like "Blind" portray the group's eclectic roots in classic rock and blues. The name Redstone Rising refers to the band's never-ending development of style. As their creativity and talent develop, so does their music. The group continues to search for performance opportunities around the Southeast.
