About The Well Reds

Atlanta, GA

The Well Reds : ðə wěl rɛdz –noun 1. from “The Mean Reds” as used by Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to describe a state of being or becoming afraid, the cause of which is unknow

With a blend of indelible hooks, soaring vocals, and accessible songwriting, The Well Reds have crafted a sophisticated alternative pop-rock sound that resonates in listeners’ ears long after the first play. Made up of Jeremy Ezell, Torin Degnats, and brothers Sean and Rex Crawford, the Atlanta-based quartet has become known for their infectious melodies and polished live performances, which landed the band a management deal with Bonded Entertainment and a roster spot with top college booking agents DEGY Booking International this past year.

Since their inception in 2008, The Well Reds have shared bills with acts like Hot Chelle Rae (RCA), Parachute (Mercury Records), Minus The Bear (Dangerbird Records), and Automatic Love Letter (Epic). They have also played a variety of festivals in the Southeast, and their rise in local prominence has led to sold-out shows in premiere Atlanta music venues such as Eddie’s Attic, Smith’s Olde Bar, and Hard Rock Café’s Velvet Underground. In 2011 the band showcased in both LA and New York after winning the New Music Seminar "Live At Roxy" competition and being a finalist on the web-series "The Ourstage Panel" respectfully, and on the heels of strong showings at multiple NACA conferences this past fall, The Well Reds will be performing at dozens of college and Universities across the US throughout this year with an extensive Mid-America tour booked for January and February. In April the band will perform in Panama City for the Rock By The Sea charity with Need To Breathe (Atlantic) and Shawn Mullins.

Although The Well Reds continue to garner national recognition beyond their Georgia roots, the well-dressed southern boys come with no pretense. The band’s aim is to invest in people’s lives by creating great music that fans can connect with. Their debut EP Violet, produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (Cartel, Mayday Parade, All Time Low), has proven just that creating a buzz with fans and industry executives alike, while earning the band coverage and exposure throughout the country in a variety of traditional and digital media outlets.

Reviews:

“Composed of seasoned musicians and a uniquely distinctive sound, The Well Reds’ tailored orchestration of emotional yet mature pop anthems will have you humming the melody and singing the lyrics just after one listen.” - Mixtape Atlanta

“The Well Reds’ Alternative Rock sound emphasizes on the acute collaboration of pop influenced vocals, deep piano harmonies mixed-in with some vivacious and solid guitar licks. Their tunes carry the catchiness of the pop genre, but this band induces quite the rock vitality throughout their set hitting each note harder than the one before while connecting passionately to very line delivered. ”                        - Black Vinyl Magazine - Florida Music Festival Day 1 2011

“Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia…The Well Reds is an Alt-Pop Rock band that is the epitome of pure musical bliss. These guys have taken all of their life experiences and inner energy and combined them to create songs that are so relatable that they grab at your heartstrings while stimulating your brain stem. If you are a fan of amazing well written songs sung by a singer who makes you feel like you have known him all your life, you will love The Well Reds as much as we do. Big radio songs filled with energy, passion and emotion. Love this band!”      -Daily Unsigned

“The votes are in, the battles are over and a Grand Prize winner (NMS 2011 Live @ Roxy) has been confirmed. Meet The Well Reds, an Atlanta pop-rock quartet whose song “6 More Months” rose all the way to the top… ”  - Ourstage

“The Well Reds new EP, ‘Violet’, is a brilliant Pop/Rock album. As soon as the title track starts you know it’s going to be good. Following up the first song, the other tracks try out different tempos and hooks, but never stray from a platinum selling polish.”     -The Album Project

“The Well Reds combine creative pop melodies with meaningful lyrics that shine brightly with their new release. Their live show is equally intriguing.”  - David Claasen BMI

“Seasoned Musicians.” - Windows Media Guide

“Great alternative pop/rock songwriting, excellent harmonies, and a mature and intricate “wall-of-sound” feel in their songs with great dynamics. These guys are serious about their music. ” Two Faces Radio 

“The Well Reds really connect with you through their authentic and straightforward lyrics. Listening to The Well Reds is feeling their pain, love, sorrow, and joy and almost unknowingly provoking similar emotions of your own. ” - Matt Shamus - Disk Revolt

“Listened to their EP, Violet, on ReverbNation. DUG what I was hearing. Great melodies. Soaring vocals. Pounding piano keys. Queen meets Crash Kings. So I downloaded the EP and I cannot stop listening to it. ” www.jrsygyrl.com

“The Well Reds brilliantly tackled “Bohemian Rhapsody’” nailing all the vocals and music notes… Prog-rock was finally represented as The Well Reds absolutely demolished “Tom Sawyer” by Rush (you would be hard pressed to find a better version even from the lips of Geddy Lee Himself).” - MIxtape Atlanta on TWREDS' 500 Songs For Kids Perfomances

“Their music is an extraordinary combination of haunting melody and relentless rhythm, performed with passion and musicality.” -Steve Rucker fmr. Drummer The Bee Gees, UM Frost School Of Music

“Awesome AWESOME band!! Excellent live show and down to earth guys. A must see act.” - August Rising - on TWREDS' NMS Roxy Performance 

“Keep an eye out for The Well Reds, the band has an awesome sound and excellent chemistry. Don’t be surprised when you see them headlining sold out shows!” -Zillionears

“All of the elements are right… This album is a total hit, the kind you can throw in your CD player and rock around Atlanta for hours, just admiring our beautiful city.” -beatlanta
