The Red Sea Pedestrians are a one-of-a-kind, full-blown, instrument-swapping fusion between tradition and the here-and-now. We’re talkin’ high-energy world-beat grooves, hypnotic laments from the earth, songs of celebration and wonder: a warped and beautiful blend of Klezmer, Greek, Gypsy, Celtic, Jazz and American Roots, all filtered through the band’s original vision.
RSP are a melting pot of six distinct singer/songwriters, almost a self-contained variety show. Their sound is first defined by the sweet interplay between clarinet and violin, and is colored by four singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists, providing the backbone to a musical experience that is both harmonically and rhythmically gratifying. The band members are also students of the great records of the sixties (notably late Beatles), and hence they have created a realm that is both comforting and challenging to the listener. Multi-layered lyrics, rich harmonies, and masterful playing complete the story.
Their captivating live shows and ambitious CDs have been getting rave reviews and building an energetic buzz throughoutMichigan's independent acoustic music community, including back-to-back WYCE Jammie Awards for Best Roots Album for "Adrift" (2010) and "The Electromagnetic Escape" (2011).
