Columbus, OH band Red Wanting Blue is finally realizing their dream of becoming a household name outside of the state of Ohio after more than a decade of existence. That success is thanks, in part, to the band’s last album, These Magnificent Miles. It was that album that captured the attention of New York-based record label, Fanatic Records. Fanatic Records re-released These Magnificent Miles and they have helped Red Wanting Blue gain a larger audience on a more national level.
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.
