Based in Arcadia, California, The Scarlet Paradigm is a four-piece hard rock band that has spent the last year writing songs and playing local shows, which include appearances at The Whisky a Go Go, The Terrace, and the Old Town Pub in Pasadena.

The band, which consists of lead singer Chris Juede (24), guitarist Bill Ritter (24), drummer James Corsini (21), and bassist Bryan Villarin (27), formed in the fall of 2008 when Chris joined forces with members of the dissolved progressive rock band, Phantom Scream. The band was a close-knit group that had already played together for four years when they added Chris for lead vocals. Since the addition, they have been recording songs and playing shows in preparation for a professional run in the music industry.
