At 11:30 Mark talks with Jeremiah James Gonzales & Brodie Lowe of Redder Moon. The band began as one of Gonzales’ many music projects, although more electronic than his other work with Knife Crime, Be/Non, Rhunes, Elevator Division, Umberto. Brody Lowe moved to KC from Portland, and met Jeremiah in 2019. Just as Gonzales and Lowe began collaborating on new material, Jill McKeever joined as a vocalist/lyricist during 2020. A violinist in her early projects led her to a degree in Electronic Art where she explored video & music recording. McKeever’s perfume brand, For Strange Women induced a 13-year detour from music before she found her way back during the quiet of quarantine. Last year the band released their EP, LAND OF THE BLIND on June 13, followed by an album, HELL IS OTHER PEOPLE, on November 5, 2021. Redder Moon is presenting a Vinyl Release Show for their album, HELL IS OTHER PEOPLE on Friday, March 18, 2022 in a show at recordBar with Monta At Odds and Meyadi. More info at www.therecordbar.com
