Tacoma Redd - A Momentary Misfortune
Powerpop/rock band Tacoma Redd are about to make themselves known with its debut EP A Momentary Misfortune, produced by Moe Berg (The Pursuit of Happiness). Already known for their hard-hitting live shows, the band set out to produce an album that captured the same energy. The result is an EP showcasing six of the bands best songs with catchy melodies and a pop sensibility.

Tacoma Redd whose influences include Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, Doughboys, Husker Du and AFI features charismatic frontman Doug Smart , guitarist Bryan Richards , bassist Chris Bell and drummer Dean Glover . Although formed in late 2003, it was 2005 where things started to happen for Tacoma Redd. Last year saw the band secure management; hook up with Berg for its first recording and landing on the same shows as Billy Idol, City & Colour, Dashboard Confesional, Bif Naked, The Illuminati and Robin Black


When I'm Not Around


I dreamt I walked with you last night
I could sense your fears, so I held you near
You never backed down from the fight
You fought for 30 years to hold back all those angry tears but...

Time won't slip away, from you
(background - hey hey, when I'm not around)
You've only just begun your life
And everything has changed, your pain is over
And you will find your way

You always took such care with me
Now I've got my chance, to give something back
Give me trust and let me lead
Just reach for my hand, I'll hold you up 'till you can stand 'cause...
