We recently had the pleasure to bounce some “Qs” off of Scott Terry – lead singer of the Ohio-based roots rock band, Red Wanting Blue. The band has been touring relentlessly for 10 years now and their latest release, “These Magnificent Miles,” is a collection of engaging tunes centered loosely around life on the road.
Q: I’d like to get started with the band’s name: Red Wanting Blue. Is this a political reference – your wanting a traditional red state, like your home state of Ohio perhaps, to become blue, or what?
Red Wanting Blue hail from Columbus, Ohio, but they probably call the road their home. They’ve been in perpetual motion for 10 years now, taking their classic roots rock and pop to every town that will have them. As you can surmise from the title, “These Magnificent Miles,” their latest record was written while on the road and tells stories of life on the road. These stories provide us with a rare glimpse into the highs and lows faced by a band touring relentlessly and fighting for survival.
